BACKGROUND

Geospatial technologies are bringing in the throes of change across the construction and infrastructure sector by bringing in operational efficiencies; eliminating data redundancy; and ensuring cost-effectiveness across planning, designing and engineering, construction and the operations and maintenance continuum. Geospatial tools play an incremental role in providing a broader context to the AEC segment by integrating spatial information and context with in-built data.

SYMPOSIUM ON AEC & Digital Cities AT GWF 2021

Geospatial World Forum 2021 shall host a 2-day symposium on AEC & Digital Cities, featuring world leaders from the AEC, urban design and city management sharing the value of geospatial-based technology solutions for the infrastructures and cites of tomorrow, as well as successful case studies on Digital Twins, ConTech, BIM and other technologies.
