  • Visibility of Building Exposed Surfaces for the Potential Application of Solar Panels: A Photometric Model 

    Florio, Pietro; Roecker, C.; Probst, M. C. Munari; Scartezzini, Jean-Louis (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    Urban areas are facing a growing deployment of solar technologies on the built exposed surfaces such as roofs and façades. This transformation often occurs without consideration of the needed architectural quality, which ...
  • 3D Model for Solar Energy Potential on Buildings from Urban LiDAR Data 

    Bill, Andreas; Mohajeri, Nahid; Scartezzini, Jean-Louis (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    One of the most promising sustainable energies that can be considered in urban environments is solar energy. A 3D model for solar energy potential on building envelopes based on urban LiDAR data was developed in this study. ...
  • Interactive Low-Cost Wind Simulation For Cities 

    Rando, Eduard; Muñoz, Imanol; Patow, Gustavo (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    Wind is an ubiquitous phenomenon on earth, and its behavior is well studied in many fields. However, its study inside a urban landscape remains an elusive target for large areas given the high complexity of the interactions ...
  • Optimizing Window Shape for Daylighting: An Urban Context Approach 

    Fernández, Eduardo; Aguerre, José Pedro; Beckers, Benoit; Besuievsky, Gonzalo (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    Configuring the optimal shape and position of a building opening, such as windows or skylights, is a crucial task for daylight availability. Computing daylighting requires the use of climate-based data, which involves large ...
  • Procedural Generation of Traffic Signs 

    Taal, Fieke C.; Bidarra, Rafael (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    Procedurally-generated virtual urban worlds typically miss plausible signaling objects on the road network, unless they were manually inserted. We present a solution to the problem of procedurally populating a given urban ...
  • An Automatic Comparison Approach to Detect Errors on 3D City Models 

    Gorszczyk, Benjamin; Damiand, Guillaume; Servigne, Sylvie; Diakité, Abdoulaye; Gesquière, Gilles (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    3D building models are needed in several professional domains. To provide better results, these models must be errors-free and that is why it is required to have a way to detect and to correct errors. These errors can be ...
  • Point Clouds as an Efficient Multiscale Layered Spatial Representation 

    Poux, Florent; Neuville, Romain; Hallot, Pierre; Billen, Roland (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    3D point clouds describe urban shape at different scales, precisions and resolutions depending on the underlying sensors and acquisition methodology. These factors influence the quality of the data, as well as its ...
  • Realistic Urban Road Network Modelling From GIS Data 

    Nguyen, Hoang Ha; Desbenoit, Brett; Daniel, Marc (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    Starting from GIS data, which are sampled and often inaccurate, this paper presents a method to reconstruct urban road surfaces respecting important geometric constraints selected from civil engineering. We propose a ...
  • UDMV 2016: Frontmatter 

    Vincent Tourre; Filip Biljecki (Eurographics Association, 2016)

    Langlois, Jean-Gil; Tourre, Vincent; Servières, Myriam; Gervais, B.; Gesquière, Gilles (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
    To understand the complexity of modern cities and anticipate their expansion, experts from various fields conceive simulation models that can be very different. Those simulation models work with a variety of data with their ...
  • Who are my Visitors and Where do They Come From? An Analysis Based on Foursquare Check-ins and Place-based Semantics. 

    Hallot, P.; Stewart, K.; Billen, Roland (The Eurographics Association, 2015)
    Activity recommendation systems aims at providing relevant information depending on targeted users' groups. For instance in a city, it makes sense to differentiate local residents from tourists. This research investigates ...
  • On the Acquisition of Human Emotions in Space and Time 

    Schöning, Julius; Bonhage, Corinna E. (The Eurographics Association, 2015)
