Responsible for managing the region’s information and communications technology, Brussels Region Informatics Centre decided to produce a 3D representation of the area based on mobile-mapped data in images and point clouds. They faced data integration challenges collecting and processing large amounts of multi-sourced data and then making it available to manage various regional projects. To determine an optimal technology solution, they implemented a six-month proof-of-concept project, capturing indoor and outdoor data of a metro station and its surrounding area.
They selected Orbit 3DM to host seven terabytes of data and manage access to regional and local administrations and stakeholders for health, environmental, and urban improvement. Using Bentley technology provided a unique source of rich 3D visuals in a secure, cloud-based environment for all stakeholders to use to create their own projects. The success of this proof-of-concept project is the cornerstone of additional digitalization of public assets, supporting the evolution of Brussels as a smart digital region.
