BIM for Surveyors
Chair: Prof. Christian Clemen, Germany
Rapporteur: Mr. See Lian Ong, Malaysia

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is changing the way how surveyors work, think, collaborate and earn money. Using and sharing multidimensional digital representations of buildings are the driving forces for the digitalization of our work. This affects many tasks surveyors and GIS professionals perform, e. g. cost estimation, GIS analysis, engineering surveying, construction work, land management and facilities management.

Scope of the Workshop:

  • Teaching theoretical background of the BIM method (concepts, workflows and standards)
  • Best practice presentations from large projects and SME (from surveyor’s point of view)
  • Presentation of the latest software (surveying, integration and collaboration with BIM, CAD, GIS)

Director Generals Forum
Chair: Mr. Bengt Kjellson, Sweden

In line with the overall theme of the Working Week, the DG Forum this year will focus on the way digitalisation will affect and transform our operations and organisations. We are sure that this is a matter that will be one of the most important to prepare for and deal with in the next few years. As the Keynote presentations that open the Working Week on Tuesday, which is the day of the DG Forum, also will deal with digitalisation, we feel that this opportunity to discuss what digitalisation can or will mean in a smaller group with colleagues is very timely. At the Director General Forum there will be a panel consisting of Arvo Kokkonen, Director General Finland, Brent Jones, ESRI, and Bengt Kjellson, Director General Sweden.

TS01C: Tectonic Movements
Commission: 5
Chair: Mr. Nic Donnelly, New Zealand
Rapporteur: Mr. Kevin Kelly, United States

Recent crustal or tectonic movements may be induced by different forces e.g. seismic events or slow slip rates or even isostatic compensation. The vertical movements have to be seen connected with sea level changes that have to be differentiated from the movements. All these phenomena have a regional or global level and geodesists are the only one to quantify the effects by measurements. In this session the focus is on GNSS measurements, but levelling and radar are suitable measurement tools for some of the effects too. Turkey, New Zealand, Nigeria and Japan are exemplary countries treated in this session.

TS02C: UAV and Photogrammetric Methods
Commission: 5
Chair: Dr. David Martin, France
Rapporteur: Dr. Daniel Roman, United States

Photogrammetry has gained enormous importance in the surveying world in these years, since Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) are dynamiting the market and are used intensively. These small “flying tripods” carry cameras and are used for e.g. to acquire topographic data in urban areas or for land mine detection. In this session contributions are dealing with consumer cameras, camera calibration as well as GNSS for UAVs. Further focus is on producing and processing of point clouds based on photos as well as on laser scans. Additionally a complete in-door positioning system is presented.

TS02E: Crowdsourcing and VGI
Commission: 3
Chair: Prof. Hartmut Müller, Germany
Rapporteur: Mr. Cromwell Manaloto, Italy

Crowdsourcing is the process of getting information or work outcomes online from a crowd of people. The advantages are to have the most comprehensive and reliable Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI). Crowdsourcing & VGI: the principle of crowdsourcing is that more heads are better than one. By a large crowd of people for experiences, skills and participation, the quality of content and the generation of ideas will be better.

BENTLEY: Reality Modeling Goes Mainstream
Chair: Mr. Aidan Mercer, Industry Marketing Director, Government and Utilities

The proliferation of reality modeling across infrastructure project delivery and asset performance is now widely adopted by infrastructure professionals that seek to adopt the latest technology in reality capture and consumption. Reality modeling describes the potentially continuous capture of infrastructure assets’ as-operated conditions for processing into engineering-ready reality meshes, and their “enlivening” for immersive interaction. To date, reality modeling has processed digital photos into reality models, but now offers available point-clouds from laser scanning which can now be combined with available photos, as “hybrid inputs,” for reconstruction into a reality mesh. The advantages of reality modeling—in the case of laser scanning, the superior engineering-ready mesh result. As the technology continues to advance and goes mainstream, this presentation will look at other examples of how reality modeling integrates with other business workflows such as geospatial, work orders, BIM processes and can be applied to a variety of disciplines, from utilities, governments, mapping, and surveying to civil development projects.

  • Laser scanning data can now be combined with digital photographs for hybrid reality models
  • Integration with other business workflows, such as geospatial data, work orders, BIM, facilities and IoT data

TS04C: Geodynamic Effects on Reference Frames
Commission: 5
Chair: Mr. Mikael Lilje, Sweden
Rapporteur: Dr. Daniel Roman, United States

Everything is moving, or more scientifically, everything is kinematic. This sentence is true for geodetic reference frames too. Every user is expecting stable coordinates within reference frames. But every point on the earth is moving due to recent crustal movements and so it is for the global ITRF datum. This session will deal with this topic, especially focusing on the global and European perspective as well as on the Nordic countries. Height and three dimensional effects on the reference frames as well as the solution and implementation strategies will be discussed.

TS04E: Spatial Data Infrastructure
Commission: 3
Chair: Prof. Charalabos Ioannidis, Greece
Rapporteur: Mr. Daniele Brancato, Italy

Nowadays, there is a growing need to use of the availability of digital spatial data for all kinds of applications in the field of management activities. In addition, with the development of today's communication technology, it becomes possible for every user, surfing the internet, to collect datasets from a variety of sources and different types of application. This requires translation from the original source data into the user’s system, to make the received data user understandable and usable. The presentations illustrate a range of experiences for the management, knowledge and data retention in surveying and government.

TS05C: Reference Systems and Frames
Commission: 5
Chair: Dr. Daniel Roman, United States
Rapporteur: Mr. Rob Sarib, Australia

The bases for all geodetic and surveying activities as well as for quite a huge amount of society issues are the reference frames on the global and national level. Traditionally these are separated into height and horizontal reference frames. Nowadays truly three-dimensional frames supplemented by gravity-based height references are the standard. This session will deal with both categories. Experts from the USA, Russia, Australia and New Zealand are presenting the newest developments.

Commission: 4
Chair: Ms. Angela Etuonovbe, Nigeria
Rapporteur: Mr. Simon Ironside, New Zealand
Human activities and the environment are inter-related. This is because any activity of man is done in the environment and the resultant effect is either positive or negative to man. The importance to surveying to the environment cannot be over emphasized, as surveying is the bedrock of development. The information derived from survey applications is useful for good governance and also help to better the life of humanity. This is evident from the various presentations by experts from the United Kingdom, Nigeria, Trinidad and Tobago, Indonesia and Belgium.

Commission: 3
Chair: Prof. Yerach Doytsher, Israel
Rapporteur: Dr. Nikos Zacharias, Greece

Land management includes the range of systems and processes that apply to land tenure rules. Supporting the surveying functions, mapping and evaluation with suitable information systems forms the basis for stability investments, for an efficient government and for a generation of fair taxation on property. A modern land management solution allows the government, the property owners and the professional groups to efficiently access and to easily manage the rights on land ownership and the digital cadastral map, resulting in faster response times, reduced operating costs, increased efficiency and higher levels of customer service.
