The objective of this workshop is to discuss the modelling and visualisation of the city at various temporal and spatial scales and aims at sharing associated techniques, methods, uses and points of view. Managing and understanding urban data are major issues as they are represented by several kind of different data at different scales. Urban data not only embed the geometry of the city model, but also data related to human activities (e.g. social data, transportation, mobility, history), to physical phenomena (e.g. light, wind, heat), and to environment (e.g. geography, climate).
Thus, their processing is a big challenge for current GIS and computing capabilities, especially considering all the sustainable development parameters related to architectural design, urban planning and urban climate studies; but also considering the specific needs of entertainment, cultural heritage or any domains using urban data. The workshop aims to gather in a same place GIS, BIM and computer graphics communities.

December 8, 2016: Workshop
Following the success of the 3rd workshop on Urban Data Modelling and Visualisation as a single event in Delft, NL, the 4th edition of the workshop is organised by the Faculty of Architecture and the Geomatics Unit of the University of Liège. Under the auspice of the Eurographics organization, the workshop will be held on December 8th in Liège, Belgium. Once again, we expect fruitful exchanges by the involvement of the computer graphics, the geoinformation and the GIS communities.
Contributions addressing the following topics are welcome:
- Modelling the static and dynamic features of the city (spatio-temporal data)
- Multi-scale geometric data (from building scale to urban scale)
- Multi-scale temporal data (from real time to history time)
- Visualisation of several urban data layers (aggregated indicators)
- Visual analytics using urban data (decision making processes and CAD)
Expected contributions are research papers, 6 pages in EG publication format, presenting unpublished methods, algorithms and techniques with established results. All accepted papers will be presented orally at the conference by one of the authors, and will be published in the EG Digital Library.
