Digital Austin: 3D Maps Predict What Is Ahead

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Digital Austin is a public-private initiative aimed at creating a 3D map of the city that details urban topography, municipal infrastructure, building-specific information and even neighborhood-level measurements of air pollution.
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin are putting high-resolution spatial recognition software and big data to use in their development of advanced 3D models that accurately predict the interplay between flood events, energy, water, transportation, pollution exposure, infectious disease transmission and more.
We believe these databases and models will be revolutionary in terms of the design of high-performing and sustainable city systems.
This panel will discuss our efforts to demonstrate these techniques in Austin.
Presented by The University of Texas
