I’ve not done this before but I think this is an interesting PhD topic for someone and of course there is a 3D city angle!
University College London and the Ordnance Survey are currently inviting applications for a 3-year PhD studentship in “Creating Dynamic3D City Models for Smarter Cities” which will examine the creation of multiple 3D models from a single data source (through generalisation/abstraction). The PhD will be supervised by Dr Claire Ellul (UCL) and by Jeremy Morley (Ordnance Survey). The closing date is the 28th July.
Okay so this came sooner than I thought it would and just in time for the Esri UC in San Diego next week!
If you are a CityEngine user this is a very good release with key improvements that will make our lives easier when working on projects. If you’re thinking about working with CityEngine for the first time this is a good release to come in on, and you can come to us for one-to-one training to get you started!
CityEngine 2017.0 has now been released and you can download it from your ‘My Esri‘ area, alternately you can grab a 30-day free trial here.
