Get involved: Manchester Innovation Challenge

As a next step in the Triangulum project, our Lighthouse City Manchester is offering an exciting opportunity to explore ways to visualise city information, alongside data generated by the project.

For this, Manchester City Council is working with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and Ordnance Survey (responsible for mapping in the UK) to create a challenge using CityGML, open data model and XML-based format for the storage and exchange of virtual 3D city models.

The challenge is aimed at groups / companies who have expertise and experience in geospaitial data.
