Cities across the globe are faced with combined issues associated with large-scale population growth, transportation system change, and re-configuration of urban form in the areas of housing, transport and industry. Research has demonstrated that the design of cities directly affects population health and is also positively associated with levels of population productivity.
Precinct Information Modelling (PIM) describes the process of creating a virtual 3D model at precinct scale, defined as a special region in built environment. PIM contains all the information pertinent the given precinct held in different data type and supports the process of management and analysis.
This report presents a way of structuring and visualising geospatial data and their corresponding semantics and metadata in a Precinct Information Model (PIM). The datasets obtained from UNSW Estate Management (EM) are used in this development. The study is completed through several steps involving pre-processing and storage of data, along with web-based visualisation.
This technical report presents a series of research projects funded by the Low Carbon Living (LCL) CRC, the CSIRO and agencies such as Sydney Water, Sustainability Victoria and the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage have been developing and piloting an Agent-Based Modelling (ABM) approach to better understand the decisions made by community members when they are presented with a range of re
After the full urbanization of the Seoul during the late 1980s several new towns where established outside the Greenbelt. Several push-and-pull factors have followed and influenced the rapid urbanization of the capital region of Korea. Currently more than 23 Million inhabitants are living in the Seoul Metropolitan Area (SMA).
Estimation of the demand of an urban precinct, related to Electricity, Transport, Waste and Water (ETWW), is a necessary step toward the delivery of quality living environments where daily activities can be conducted in a sustainable manner.
This scoping project sits across two of the three program areas of the CRC. It aims to assess the scope for developing an integrated building level and cadastrally organised relational database and analysis capacity to link the full range of geo-coded data which will be necessary to operationalize the Living Laboratory concept as well as the broader objectives of the CRC LCL.
This technical investigation canvases a range issues concerned with the development of a PIM Object Library, specifically to address carbon management, though the principles could be applied within a broader context. It deals with:
