Description

Description

This class will cover the results of a pilot project between Autodesk, Inc., and the City of Vancouver. The project used InfraWorks software as a platform for rapid energy modeling. Rapid energy modeling is an efficient simulation process used for working with minimal and, in many cases, already-available city building data to quickly generate energy assessments. The ability to visualize and analyze at a range of scales, from the block to the neighborhood, assists in developing strategies to achieve sustainability objectives. We will present the most successful workflows and interoperability workflows between InfraWorks software and other Autodesk tools and services. Equally important, we will review the role of InfraWorks software as a public-engagement tool for energy and built-form issues, presenting complex data and issues in an accessible environment.

Dan Campbell

Dan Campbell is a systems analyst with the City of Vancouver, where he is responsible for coordinating 3D visualization and analysis activities and managing the City of Vancouver's 3D model. He has a background in fine art, planning, and urban design that he is able to apply in the context of geographic information systems and city modeling, especially applying 3D to less-traditional areas such as emergency management and sustainability. Dan has spoken on the topic of 3D as it relates to design and public involvement at many conferences, including Autodesk University, Asia Geospatial Forum, GeoWeb, GeoTec, the Urban Regional Information Systems Association (URISA), Building Information Modeling (BIM) Forum, Geospatial World Forum, Middle East Geospatial Forum, India Geospatial Forum, and the Pitney Bowes Insight event. Dan has had articles published by Vector1 Media, GeoWorld magazine, and Geospatial World, and he is a member of the Institute for BIM in Canada's Technical Advisory Committee. Dan was the 2012 recipient of the Pitney Bowes Meridian Award for Technical Achievement.
