Upcoming: u_Lecture 'Smart City Information Modelling and Interoperability'
Wed, Nov 9, 2016 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM CET
Using a tool called 'Geographic Information System' one would expect to get support to model, analyse and control the dynamic phenomena of a geographic region like a city or a country. The mainstream GIS technology delivered in the last 20 years, however, does hardly live up to this expectation. The information concept of GIS is map-centric and maps are static by nature. Information, on the other hand, is a dynamic piece of knowledge exchanged between different actors to solve problems or to control processes. Even a movie of map sequences only visualizes dynamics, but does not provide hooks to manage dynamic real world systems.
