Description
Organisation: 
CIB W106 Geographical Information Systems
Acronym: 
CIB106GIS
Details
Mission and Objectives: 
Overall objectives to provide an international platform for R&D of GIS applications for the built environment, and to promote and encourage the use of GIS in the building sector. The work is divided into four Tasks, each with separate objectives, as follows: TG1- GIS-requirements and availability of geographic standards-, -data and infra -structures. Objectives: For the built environment sector to •increase the understanding and usage of geographic information •promote the exploitation of efficient, effective, and economic use of digital geographic information •contribute to a unified approach to addressing global performance requirements TG2- GIS-based analysis and modelling of flow and distribution of materials in the built environment, with Objectives to: • promote the exploitation of the geographic information technology as a tool to model the amount, distribution and flow of building materials • explore the material data availability and data sharing possibilities for an efficient, effective, and economic use of digital geographic information for modelling and mapping materials (amounts, distribution, flow) on various geographic levels. TG3- Spatial dynamic modelling for Simulation of the interaction between the natural and the built environment, with objectives: • To promote the exploitation of the geographic information technology as a tool to model the degradation environment to buildings and infrastructures • To explore the environmental data availability and data sharing possibilities for an efficient, effective, and economic use of digital geographic information for modelling and mapping the degradation environment on various geographic levels. • contributing to a unified approach to characterize the exposure of the built environment. TG4- GIS in Education and Info sources. Objectives and work programme for each of these tasks are given and illustrated with examples, taken from state –of-the-art reports on the use of GIS elaborated by the participating countries/organisations, with objectives: • education requirements for GIS use by Architects and Engineering. • the glossary representing the common language among the GIS- and the Built Sector Community. • courses presenting the GIS as a technology for the architectural design process. • a list of the info sources of free spatial data sets location accumulated across Europe. • some pilot Education interoperable applications (e.g. for distance learning). • organise an internet discussion list to gather participants subscription and comments in real time. • to achieve a broad participation also within of European initiatives and programmes, especially the Marie Curie Programme opportunities until 2006.
