Digital Construction


The past decade has witnessed a remarkable surge in the adoption of geospatial technologies by the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry globally. Geospatial data such as point clouds, imagery, and 3D models have contributed to the digital transformation of the AEC industry resulting in significant improvements in the safety, cost, and efficiency of construction projects. This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from geospatial and AEC communities to discuss the latest developments and future trends in digital construction. The workshop will include presentations on topics related to the application of geospatial technologies in digital construction, including but not limited to laser scanning, photogrammetry, positioning, unmanned aerial mapping, as-built 3D modelling, computer vision, additive manufacturing, visualization techniques, IoT sensors, real-time monitoring, and quality control. The workshop will be part of the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2023 to be held in Cairo, Egypt.
