Hong Kong is a high-density city and it would be difficult to have a clear grasp of the actual environment if town planning is simply based on 2D plans. Not only has the Planning Department developed the 3D Planning and Design System to visualise the cityscape of Hong Kong in 3D environment and integrate with existing planning information that assists town planners to map out the future city blueprint for Hong Kong, we also make use of various smart technologies to facilitate our planning work.
In the "Smart Planning in the Digital Era" exhibition, the Planning Department shall showcase an array of IT initiatives leveraging the latest innovation and technology to facilitate smart planning in Hong Kong. Augmented Reality (AR) will be adopted to help illustrate the main features of these IT initiatives, namely Town Planning Information System; Statutory Planning Portal 2; the operation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles; 3D photo-realistic models and land use classification under Land Utilisation Map in Hong Kong. Besides, the key features of the 3D Planning and Design System (e.g. visualisation of multi-layer data in 3D environment, generation of design schemes and use of planning/ urban design tools) will also be highlighted in the exhibition.
