About CASA

The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) is an initiative within University College London to develop emerging computer technologies in several disciplines which deal with geography, space, location, and the built environment. As an interdisciplinary research centre expertise is drawn from archaeology, architecture, cartography, computer science, environmental science, geography, planning, remote sensing, mathematics, geomatic engineering, and transport studies. This generates a unique blend of personnel who operate from CASA and associated departments within UCL. CASA is a department within the Faculty of the Built Environment (http://www.casa.ucl.ac.uk).

Salary

Salary will be dependent on experience. The minimum spine point for a Lecturer is Grade 7 spine point is 33 (currently £36,064 including London Weighting).  Applicants with significant experience and research publications may be appointed on Grade 8.

UCL Live Campus Augmented Reality App – Created by Masters Students at CASA Print E-mail
Thursday, 20 June 2013 02:23

UCLive is an Augmented Reality Map of UCL developed by students on the Masters in Advanced Spatial Analysis and Visualisation at CASA. Featuring live data, the augmented reality android app works by simply pointing your mobile device at any of the UCL maps across campus.

Running in Unity and mixing a number of GIS and Agent Based Modelling elements, the development is outlined below:

  1. A three dimensional base model was created with SketchUp on top of the UCL campus map;
  2. Moving agents and transports are added into the application to show local bus and tube routes;
  3. Sounds are embedded into the application from the UCL Soundcloud;
  4. Online data on buildings, Twitter and PC Cluster availability  – live;
  5. The user’s location is shown in the application map.

The movie illustrates the app in action:

Take a look at the main UCLive page for full details and updates, we are currently exploring next steps to move the app towards release on Android and iOS.

You can still apply for 2013/14 entry to the MRes in Advanced Spatial Analysis and Visualisation the final full time deadline for applications: August 2nd.

UCL Quad – Procedural City and Lumion Print E-mail
Wednesday, 12 June 2013 03:24

The Quadrangle at University College London was designed by William Wilkins and constructed between 1827 and 1828. It is a natural building of urban research as its surroundings provide a mix of architectural styles. The 3D model of the quad was built using SketchUp with photos grabbed via a mobile phone – quick and simple.

UCL Quad - Lumion

UCL Quad – Lumion

Regular readers will recognise the model from our previous Elder Scrolls IV Game Engine work. We found the model on an old hard drive for a group of students working on a new UCL project. As such we took the opportunity to  load it into Lumion and add it into a future Bloomsbury created using CityEngine. Finally, the falling cubes (CASA branded, home of digital urban) are via 3D Max, linked in from a previous tutorial on Mass FX:

The building is centered on a Corinthian portico, after the completion of University College London Wilkins went to design the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square.
