Geo-Immersive Reality

31 October 2017
Our ultimate reality team show how they are innovating with the concept of Geo-Immersive Reality (GIR). GIR is the visualisation of, and interaction with, geo-referenced data through augmented reality and virtual reality (AR/VR) experiences. Delivering referenced data through these mediums has potential to impact many services in Smart Cities, utilities and digital built environments.

2 October 2017 - Detail matters: 5G in the 3D world
We explore why it's vital to have a detailed understanding of the built and natural environment to support the rollout of 5G at frequency greater than 6GHz.

18 July 2017 - How smart is your city?
We explore how location data is being used to create Smart environments and enable citizens through the development of collaborative Smart City solutions. CityVerve is a demonstrator project for IoT technology, which uses OS’s advanced geospatial data to underpin Smart City solutions.

22 June 2017 - The importance of a unified addressing system
In this webinar, we explored what makes for a good addressing system, the benefits it can bring, and some of the issues to consider in implementing one. We also looked at some of the different types of systems that are being used.

16 May 2017 - Geospatial data and services
OS's Spatial Data Expert & Adviser, Carsten, explores the evolving need for location data in smart environments and how data sharing, standards and interoperability are key.

25 Apr 2017 - Social economic benefits of geospatial data
We look at some of the challenges faced by national mapping, geospatial & SDI organisations, the sectors that are harnessing Geospatial Information and the benefit to high to low income nations.

27 Mar 2017 - Inspiring geospatial innovation
Geovation is an open innovation network and challenge platform for geospatial ideas. Hear how it supports start-ups, to encourage the use of location data.

21 Feb 2017 - A spatially connected government
Now, more than ever before, big businesses, government ministers and policy officials are seeing the power of location.

1 Feb 2017 - Point Cloud
Point Cloud data is a group of unconnected points representing a 3D environment. Use it to identify line of sight, signal propagation, to help with city planning, navigation, data classification, visualisation and seeing inside buildings.

1 Feb 2017 - Point Cloud demos
Watch a short demo to see the level of detail captured.
