Discover how the City of Melbourne is making use of the latest 3D spatial technology to better understand their green roofs, extract quantitative information, monitor rooftop changes over time, identify new green rooftop candidates and visualise in 3D their rooftop greening targets.
In high-density cities, roofscapes represent a large amount of available land. A growing number of cities are exploring new ways to make use of this unused space by developing recreational areas as well as green rooftops to increase health and environmental benefits.
Green rooftops and vertical gardens provide huge benefits to reduce air pollution, provide thermal insulation, decrease heat island effects, reduce storm water runoff and offer healthier living and entertainment space to the community.
The City of Melbourne is committed to becoming a carbon-neutral city and has a number of green initiatives in place to reduce emissions and address climate change impacts.
The City of Melbourne is using accurate 3D city models and high resolution derived spatial data to better understand their roofscape by:
extracting accurate and quantitative spatial information on existing rooftops and vertical gardens
analysing changes over time
identifying potential rooftop candidates
visualizing rooftop greening targets
In this presentation, we will show you how Aerometrex is helping the City of Melbourne is leveraging multiple 3D geospatial datasets to build a more sustainable, climate resilient community.
