Geoscientific City Modelling

GTK promotes know-how and project activities related to the application of geoscientific expertise, data and geomodels in sustainable urban development and in building information modelling (BIM). The main goal of the research and surveys is to model geological, geophysical, geotechnical, rock mechanical and hydrogeological data to be integrated in BIM, and to promote sustainable land use planning, infrastructural design in tunnelling and subsurface construction. GTK co-operates with a variety of private and public stakeholders, including land-use planners, geo-engineers, builders, construction companies, cities and major land owners. The results produce new know-how, innovations and sustainable customer-oriented applications.
