Nowadays, the digital 3D city models are the basis of the urban data platform. It plays an essential role in various fields of industry and research, from urban resource planning, environmental simulation, disaster management, and many more. Especially, there is more and more use of 3D city models in 3D visualization applications. However, one comm...

This work assesses the role of biomass and municipal solid waste in isolated energy systems. For this, La Réunion, a French overseas territory in the Indian Ocean with a population of about 850,000, serves as a case study. Methodically , the study assesses technical biomass-based potentials based on an island-wide digital landscape model, detailed...
Article
Addressing the gap between available urban building data, energy performance evaluation, and spatial distribution of end-users is a growing concern of municipalities to support urban energy planning and retrofitting towards low carbon emission strategies. These days, many existing urban building energy models (UBEM) use the non-geo-specified 3D bui...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The OGC Interoperable Simulation and Gaming Year 2 Sprint advanced the use of relevant OGC and Khronos Group standards in the modeling, simulation, and training communities through capability development, compatibility testing, and gap analysis. Of particular interest was the use of glTF models, game engines, and 3rd-party mobile device libraries f...

Full-text available
This paper explains the development of a 3D city model-based Public Participation Platform as a prototype and its implementation in a real-world public participation process to redevelop the Weilimdorf area of Stuttgart city. Alongside conducting Weilimdorf’s public participation process, the goal of the mentioned public participation platform is t...
Article
Full-text available
This paper explains the first insights into the ongoing development of a CityGML based Food Water Energy Application Domain Extension (FWE ADE). Cities are undergoing rapid expansion throughout the globe. As a result, they face a common challenge to provide food, water and energy (FWE) supplies under healthy and economically productive conditions....
Article
Full-text available
In the face of climate change and the energy transition that the German federal government is aiming for, all renewable energy potentials need to be tapped. Unfortunately, small wind turbines play a niche role in Germany and most other countries despite the fact, that although they offer advantages as e.g. almost seasonal independent energy product...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The projected increasing population in cities and metropolitan regions results in higher demands of resources, i.e., food, water, and energy (FAO 2018), that are essential for human well-being, poverty reduction, and sustainable development (Hülsmann and Ardakanian 2018). There are clear interactions between water, food, and energy that may result...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Cities are undergoing rapid urbanisation throughout the globe. A common challenge amongst them is to provide food, water, and energy (FWE) supplies under sustainable and economically productive conditions. As a result, new tools and techniques must be developed to support domain experts and decision-makers to understand, simulate and visualise the...
Article
Full-text available
A quantitative assessment of food-water-energy interactions is important to assess pathways and scenarios towards a holistically sustainable regional development. While a range of tools and methods exist that assess energetic demands and potentials on a regional scale, the same is not true for assessments of regional food demand and potential. This...
Article
Full-text available
The paper explains a workflow to simulate the food energy water (FEW) nexus for an urban district combining various data sources like 3D city models, particularly the City Geography Markup Language (CityGML) data model from the Open Geospatial Consortium, Open StreetMap and Census data. A long term vision is to extend the CityGML data model by deve...
Article
Full-text available
The assessment of regional bioenergy potentials from different types of natural land cover is an integral part of simulation tools that aim to assess local renewable energy systems. This work introduces a new workflow, which evaluates regional bioenergy potentials and its impact on water demand based on geographical information system (GIS)-based l...
Article
Full-text available
With increasing urbanization, climate change poses an unprecedented threat, and climate-sensitive urban management is highly demanded. Mitigating climate change undoubtedly requires smarter urban design tools and techniques than ever before. With the continuous evolution of geospatial technologies and an added benefit of analyzing and virtually vis...
Article
Full-text available
Humans’ activities in urban areas put a strain on local water resources. This paper introduces a method to accurately simulate the stress urban water demand in Germany puts on local resources on a single-building level, and scalable to regional levels without loss of detail. The method integrates building geometry (CityGML), building physics, censu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Rapid urbanisation and the ever-growing world population have put a heavy toll on world climatic conditions especially in the way existing and new urban developments emit carbon. As per an estimation, 28% of all energy related carbon emission worldwide accounts for energy used to heat, cool and light the buildings. In this context along with new ap...

Full-text available
The assessment of theoretical and technical biomass potential from different types of natural land cover is an integral part of simulation tools that aim to assess local multi-energy systems. This work introduces a new workflow which evaluates the local biomass potential from various sources, its transformation to different forms of biofuel and the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper, we present a concept for an urban energy dashboard built using different Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standards integrated with 3D city models. With cities continuously pressed to cut upon their carbon emissions, it becomes vital to visualize different energy data under one application. This perfectly fits ourvision of developing...

The county of Ludwigsburg is located in the centre of Baden-Württemberg, in Germany’s south-western corner. It covers an area of approximately 265 square miles, with a population of about 550,000 inhabitants, spread across 39 municipalities. In 2013, the county set itself a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 90 percent until 2050 through...
Conference Paper

In this paper, we describe a concept to manage and develop a web-based virtual 3D scene, based on CityGML LoD 2 models, DTM tiles, ortho-photos and energy simulation results of specific heating demand and photovoltaic potential generated from SimStadt simulation platform, by integrating it on ESRI 3D City Information Model (3DCIM) platform. The fin...

One of the most important criteria for habitat management in developing and overpopulated countries is Urbanization. In countries especially like India, Urbanization has caused many social issues like formation of slums, unstructured land use, congestion and traffic problems. Hence to solve this issues a sustainable strategy needs to be formulated...
