GIS has transformed the way spatial (geographic) data, relationships and patterns in the world are able to be interactively queried, processed, analysed, mapped, modelled, visualised, and displayed for an increasingly large range of users, for a multitude of purposes. Trace has expertise in Architecture GIS Applications in following sectors

Line of Sight

– Planning high-rise buildings so they don’t obstruct the view of the mountains in Portland using line of sight.

Exposure to Noise

– Orchestrating urban mobility plans with special consideration for the impact environmental noise using OrbisGIS. (Urban Noise)

Development Planning

– Making citizens happy through smart development planning and understanding the bigger picture.

Crowd Simulation

– Mastering the collective dynamics of interacting objects in urban phenomena at the scale of individual households, people, and units of real estate and at time-scales approaching “real time”. (Crowd Simulation)

Solar Exposure

– Harvesting light to assess the suitability of installing solar (photovoltaic) panels on roofs using 3D city models and geometric information such as the tilt, orientation and area of the roof.

City Engine

– Assessing feasibility and plan implementation using Esri’s City Engine improving urban planning, architecture, and overall design.

Pedestrian Behavior

– Discerning the movements of pedestrians and urban behavior throughout through a plaza in Copenhagen.

Shadow Analysis

– Diagnosing how much shadow will be casted in the pre-construction phase onto its surrounding using Bentley Map.

Parking Availability

– Orchestrating a parking available by collecting the percent of spaces occupied versus search time.

Integration of GIS and BIM

– Operating a facility with BIM (building information modeling) because of its ability to analyze information and integrate data from different systems.

Tangible Landscape

– Experimenting with the potential impact of different building configurations with an easy-to-use 3D sketching tool. (Tangible Landscape)


– Conceptualizing building plans with focus on stakeholder participation and collaboration to closely follow natural systems.

Propagation of Noise in Urban Environments

– Modelling 3D data to answer how urban citizens are harmed by noise pollution, and how to mitigate it with noise barriers.

Space Utilization

– Augmenting NASA’s Langley Research Center by applying optimization algorithms to space utilization. (Space Utilization)

Ordnance Survey Geovation

– Pioneering location innovation in the United Kingdom through Geovation – the collaboration, exchange of ideas and inspiring innovation. (Ordnance Survey Geovation)
