The Dutch 5D approach on how to become a data driven Railway Company, Geospatial data is key!
Robert Voûte, Vice President Consulting at CGI Netherlands, shares his experience on how he, together with ProRail, first set up a way of thinking on how geospatial information will become the central pillar in becoming data driven. Since all that is important for ProRail is somewhere out there, location is the only way of describing everything in one authentic and connected way. Data will be unique and location aware and stored in a authentic 5D base registration, so everything in 3D, with timestamps and solving the Level of Detail issue. He will then share a few examples of how this can work out in real life: schema’s, remote sensing data combined.
