Data and data science play key role in informed decision-making for various businesses. 3D location data and 3D data analysis add more advantages for identification of problems, patterns and trends by location and time to make smarter decisions for our cities. Smart cities get benefits from data, data science, location data and analytics to provide accurate information for better decision making at local and regional scale. Sensing technologies and real time data collectors are also great tools for collecting different dimensions of data. In a smart cities era, all these data and information require appropriate collaborative and communication technologies for better management and sharing of data and information.
The Smart Data and Smart Cities (SDSC) Conference is an annual international conference that brings together international experts in city analytics, GIS, digital twins, smart cities and data science from leading research institutes to discuss advances in methods and applications. It provides a forum to discuss the use data and technology to plan and shape our future cities. SDSC is the annual conference of the Urban Data Management Society, a society over 40 years old.
3D GeoInfo is an annual international conference that provides a forum for decision-makers, professionals, academia, data providers and vendors in the field of 3D geoinformation focussing on theoretical, standardisation, technical, implementation and application issues in different disciplines. 3D Geoinfo has been organised since 2006 in different parts of the world.
This year the 7th annual SDSC conference and 17th 3D GeoInfo will be jointly held in Sydney, Australia 18-21 October, 2022. This is the first time SDSC conference has come to Australia, and in fact the Southern Hemisphere. It is the second time 3D GeoInfo has been organised in Australia. This joint event will be organised by City Futures Research Centre, Smart Cities and Infrastructure Cluster and Geospatial Research Innovation Development (GRID) at the University of New South Wales, Sydney.
This joint event seeks to invite cutting edge research, experience, and implementation relevant to city and infrastructure data, analytics, collaborative environments, and platforms for smarter decision making at local, national, and international levels. We encourage scholars and practitioners to share their research and experience relevant to the themes of the two conferences:
