INNOVATION IN CADASTRE AND LAND DEVELOPMENT
As part of South Korea’s Incheon Economic Free Zone, Songdo began
development in 1994 and is being built on reclaimed land. The planned
community is designated to become an international business center. The
primary goal of this project was to plan for the Songdo District section
development by the construction unit. For construction of each unit to proceed
in phases, planners needed insight into the existing district infrastructure.
Using MicroStation and Bentley Navigator, Kunwon Engineering developed a
3D model of the entire Songdo district, providing easy access to information
for planning materials procurement and logistics. The visual model enhanced
understanding of the construction phase planning. As a result, the cost of
transportation logistics has been reduced by 3 percent.

The city of Lincoln, the University of Nebraska, and the Lower Platte South
Natural Resources District identified three goals for Antelope Valley: community
revitalization, stormwater management, and transportation improvements. The
$246 million project has created new and improved infrastructure including
housing, parks and recreation facilities, storm sewer improvements, and a
roadway system designed for 2025 traffic volumes.
After 10 years, Antelope Valley is in the final stages of construction and
entering the maintenance phase. All participants standardized on MicroStation
and GEOPAK throughout the project’s lifecycle, which enabled the project
team to create and distribute project-specific workspace environments and
standards. Using Bentley products promoted interoperability, data sharing, and
workflow efficiency among clients, design teams, and other stakeholders.
