DBL SmartCity: An Open-Source IoT Platform for Managing Large BIM and 3D Geo-Referenced Datasets

AbstractThe `smart city' approach has been promoted as an effective way to manage urban environments. Information and communication technology in general, as well as `Internet of Things' systems in particular, constitute an essential component of all smart city initiatives. However, many past and current smart city implementations place only an insufficient emphasis on the geo-spatial and 3D nature of data. In order to fill this gap, we present DBL SmartCity, an open-source smart city IoT platform that is based on open standards and designed from the ground-up to effectively store, manage, and present large sets of BIM and 3D geo-referenced data.
