Presentation by Dr. Filip Biljecki   

This talk will overview activities of the NUS Urban Analytics Lab, a multidisciplinary research group established by Dr Filip Biljecki, focusing on urban data science and 3D city modelling. The Lab is spearheading research lines such as new means to generate and analyse high resolution data of the urban form, and developing novel instruments to assess and support urban sustainability. For example, the group recently developed the first open registry of sustainable rooftops around the world, which will be presented in this talk.
