I have participated in a project called “Bygga Villa” with Prof. Anders Östman from Högskolan i Gävle. We have succeeded to produce two research papers from the research part of the project. The authors of the papers are:Mohamed El-Mekawy, Anders Östman, Khurram Shahzad, and the titles are:
1) Geospatial Interoperability for IFC and CityGML: Challenges of Existing Building Information Databases
2) Geospatial Integration: Preparing Building Information Database for Integration with CityGML for Decision Support
The two papers were presented at the 5th International Conference on Innovations in Information Technology (Innovations’08) in Dubai, UAE (16-18th, Dec, 2008) (http://www.it-innovations.ae/) and will be published in IEEE and fully indexed in IEEE Xplore.
Some pictures from the conference and social activities can be seen on my page.
