The theme of the 2021 Conference is “Smart Surveyors for Land and Water Management“. How to build and manage a densely populated coastal country with a land area of which nearly half is below sea level? We, the Dutch know how to do just that and have done so for centuries. The role of surveyors in this endeavour has been crucial. And their role is even more crucial today when we have to protect our country against the impact of climate change causing sea level rise.
23 juni: Digital Twins | How can DT support legal security?
Sustainable development and management of both the built en living environment, integrated spatial planning above- and below the surface, has to tackle many major social challenges, such as: housing shortage, climate change, energy transition and limited natural resources. Here, the concept of a Digital Twin plays an important role. The question we ask ourselves is ”How can Digital Twin support to increase legal certainty?” and, is there a role for FIG to play? The Triple Helix model of innovation between Government, Business and University helps making policy. Together we’ll discuss their roles, interactions and solutions.
Noud Hooyman,Chief Geo-information Officer Directorate for Spatial Planning Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations Netherlands, is one of the speakers.
