AMAzE 2.0 – Automated submission process 2.0

In a livable and sustainable city that is designed to conserve resources, outdoor space is becoming increasingly important. Park areas, avenues, individual trees, and green facades respectively roofs have a positive influence on the urban climate and are crucial for climate-neutral urban districts. However, a consistent and high-quality database is essential for the optimal use of outdoor space. Once this is created, it can serve as the basis for urban planning decisions and be used to simulate future urban developments. So far, outdoor space is often neglected in the context of Building Information Modeling (BIM). However, the potential of a digital twin representing a complete city - including its outdoor space - is impressive and represents the motivation for this project.

The main goal of the project is the optimal use of the outdoor/green space. To achieve this goal, regular updates from overflight and satellite data are required for verification and quality assurance on the one hand, and continuous digital recording of the outdoor space on the other. With the help of this, an evaluation and potential survey of individual streets up to entire city districts can be carried out. The survey of the improvement potential regarding noise reduction, reduction of the cooling load, improvement of the urban climate, etc. forms the basis for achieving a climate-neutral, livable city.

The main components of the project thus comprise the planning and implementation, respectively the construction with special attention to the exterior/green space, as well as the target/actual comparison of digital building models as IFC-Data (ISO 16739 - Industry Foundation Classes) with data from geographic information systems (GIS) and the subsequent updating of the data basis. The necessary software design for the interface between openBIM and GIS will be designed and implemented as a prototype.

The entire life cycle can thus be roughly divided into the following six points:

  1. Data basis: GIS
  2. Planning: openBIM
  3. Digital Authority process
  4. Implementation/construction openBIM
  5. Target/actual comparison
  6. Data basis (updated): GIS
