Update 4: Final programme published
Scope of the workshop
This workshop has the multiple aims:
- to specify the minimum 3D modeling requirements of NMAs;
- to identify, together with industry and researches, the most efficient 3D object capture methodologies for very large areas (e.g. national coverage);
- recognizing that “as automated as possible” might not always be the most efficient solution (i.e. guaranteeing a valid 3D object output for 60% of the objects could be preferable over a solution that targets a higher percentage but requires higher levels of human verification);
- to examine in addition to the reconstruction processes, the issues of validation of generated objects;
- to examine the ability to remain consistent with the original source;
- to focus on the most prominent features in (the majority of) 3D topological models, buildings and transportation networks (including tunnels and bridges);
- to focus on 3D object generation including the generation of accuracy information on the generated data. Data capture methodologies that can be varied in their sources (e.g. LiDAR, aerial photogrammetry, terrestrial laser scanning, existing 2D data) are of interest but not the prime focus of the workshop;
- to explicitly address the distinction between initial data capture and the incremental update of existing national models, which will require embedding the 3D modeling within established processes of continuous incremental updating of countrywide data sets.
Traditionally geospatial data has been restricted to 2D. Initially simply the result of limitations in the available technologies, subsequently the methodologies for modelling in 2D which evolved have proved to be sufficient for most geo-applications and become entrenched. Now the growing awareness for our intensively used environment makes 3D information increasingly important in many applications. For National Mapping Agencies (NMA), that have a long history in collating and maintaining countrywide 2D-datasets, the major challenge is how to best adopt a 2D base into 3D environment with an established process of continuous incremental update, and making best use of available resources. This is not a transition however and the ability to retain consistency with the original source is an imperative.
The EuroSDR 3D SIG is currently formed of: Swisstopo, Ordnance Survey Ireland, Ordnance Survey UK, IGN France, IGN Belgium, Bavaria (Germany), Landmateriet Sweden, NLS Finland and Dutch Kadaster.

Hotels: There are a wider range of hotels to choose from in the area. It is recommended that you make use of a hotel booking site in order to catpure the best deals for a hotel that suites your particular needs.
We'd suggest that you use the post code SO16 0AS as the basis of any searches. The Ordnance Survey office is located to the extreme north of Southampton with good links to hotels in Romsey (the White Horse is recommended) and the New Forest (the Crown Manor House being a fine example). The city itself offers a wide choice of branded hotels.
Airports: Southampton is served by Southampton Intenrational Airport with direct flights to a number of European destinations (http://www.southamptonairport.com/destinations/).
Taxi: For fast and easy access between the stations and the office a taxi can contacted on 023 8066 6666 (Radio Taxis)
Bus: The First Direct service 1 (not 1A) connects the Ordnance Survey office (Adanac Drive) with Southampton Central station. The journey takes in the region of 30 - 45 minutes.
