SPECIALISED INFORMATION SERVICE

BAUdigital

A platform for science

News

Position

Scientific work in the digital age is hardly imaginable without disciplinary networking. New digital methods and technologies in civil engineering, architecture and urbanism are closely linked to complex digital models, processes and data related to the objects of investigation. This creates highly discipline-specific requirements for publication and exchange of such data to enable the scientific transparency and durable re-use of results and tools within this broadly diversified specialist community.

Set up

In this context, the Specialised Information Service BAUdigital – funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) – is being established as a sustainable digital platform to support research in the field of built environment and building technology. BAUdigital will be developed in direct dialogue with the specialist community and a scientific advisory board. Various workshops and an international conference are planned. The aim is to provide jointly designed future-oriented services.

Platform

The planned web service platform will support research with the following services:

  • Presentation, storage and re-use of 3D research data within the framework of the FAIR Data Principles
  • Retro-digitisation of 2D and 3D objects, establishment of a 3D retro-digitisation service
  • Thesaurus BAUdigital as Linked Open Data
  • Digital preservation of selected research data
  • Networking and exchange
  • Literature supply and publication services with a focus on Open Access

Profile

BAUdigital is conceptualised in a broad professional plane. Together with three large academic libraries (TIB, UBB, ULB) and the Fraunhofer IRB, selected community partners from science and research, as well as an academic advisory board representing the entire research landscape, are working on the ambitious project

Kickoff

BAUdigital started with a kick-off event on March 2nd, 2021, where the project and community partners, the scientific advisory board and the planned services were introduced. The scientific significance and tasks of the Specialised Information Service was outlined on the basis of various impulses from the advisory board and the specialist community. In a subsequent discussion, open questions were answered and suggestions gathered.
