CORP2003 & GeoMultimedia03: gLOCALize.IT, Meeting for Planners, Feb. 25 - Mar. 1
From flood prevention to the spatial impacts of teleworking, from strategic eo-Information-Systems and remote sensing to geodata-policy, from improving things on a local scale in a globalized world to 4D-City&landscape modelling:
How do planners use information- and communication technologies and what´s the impact of ICT on physical space?
CORP Symposions are held annually since 1996 and have become a major european conference dealing with impacts of information- and communication technologies on urban and spatial planning. New possibilties for using technology as planning and administrative support tools, perspectives of planning disciplines within the "information society" as well as "the future of geographical space" are presented and discussed
MAIN ISSUES AT CORP 2003
Do the meanings of local and regional characteristics completely disappear? Are they reduced to a few marketable folkloristic aspects? Or does the local and regional level even gain significance in the view of global and international developments? Is the slogan "think global, act local!" antiquated or more important than ever?
4D CITY & LANDSCAPE MODELS
3D-models are permanently rising in popularity. More and more cities and tourism regions rely on the effects of 3D modelling. New techniques and fast hardware allow to produce stunning illustrations relatively cheap and quick.
But do these improved visualisation opportunities really result in better plans and advantages in the development of cities and regions? Where are the real benefits of 3D modelling? And what about the time dímension for future plannings as well as for the past, i.e. for documentation and reconstruction of historical buildings?
Do 4D City & Landscape Models already deploy all of their advantages?
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
CORP addresses key actors in administration, politics and management, consultants, planners, service providers, researchers and students involved in "spatial thinking".
