Aufbau des Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology

getragen von der Klaus Tschira Stiftung

Das Projekt zum Aufbau des Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT) ist an der Abteilung Geoinformatik am Geographischen Institut der Universität Heidelberg angesiedelt. Das Ziel ist es den Wissens- und Technologietransfer aus der Geoinformatik-Grundlagenforschung in die Praxis auf Basis innovativer Geoinformationstechnologien zu verbessern. Der Fokus liegt auf der Umsetzung praxisbezogener Projekte und Dienste vor allem in den Bereichen

  • Big Spatial Data Analytics,
  • Intelligente Ortsbasierte Dienste und Navigation, sowie
  • Disaster-Mapping für humanitäre Hilfen.

Big Spatial Data Analytics Navigation Intelligence & Location Based Services
Analyse, Veredelung und Nutzung von Geoinformationen aus nutzergenerierten Geodaten durch Spatial Data Mining, Machine Learning und Geocomputation

Leistungen und Referenzen
Innovative Verkehrs- und Mobilitätslösungen, Routing- und Navigationsdiensten auf Basis veredelter Daten von OpenStreetMap und des Social Web

Leistungen und Referenzen

Disaster Mapping - (V)GI für humanitäre Hilfe
Unterstützung humanitärer Aktionen durch innovative Geo-Dienste und aktuelle Karten für das Katastrophenmanagement v.a. auf Basis nutzergenerierter Geodaten (Crowdsourcing, OSM, Social Web...)

Presentation on VGI and society: inequalities, exclusions and power asymmetries of user generated geoinformation

This morning Georg Glasze and Thomas Bittner from Erlangen University gave a very interesting keynote talk on “VGI and society: inequalities, exclusions and power asymmetries of user generated geoinformation”. It was well received and lead to a lively discussion among the participants of the DFG SPP VGIscience Collaborative Research Week that is taking place this week [...]

Ohsome - a high level architectual overview of the OSM History Analytics platform

Recently we introduced the ohsome platform for OSM History Analytics. Now we want to give you a high-level overview of the ohsome platform and the components it consists of. Ohsome API The ohsome platform is based on a three-layers API architecture, where the flexibility, as well as the usage-complexity are increasing going from the top to [...]

Identifying the Effects of Mobility Domains on Volunteered Geographical Information: Towards an Analytical Approach

The production of Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) is a type of human behavior which emerges via direct and indirect interactions with the physical environments described by these data. The nature of these interactions and the extent to which they rely on physical presence in the mapped area may affect the quality of the resulting digital [...]

Associating OpenStreetMap tags to CORINE land-cover classes using text and semantic similarity measures

With the aim of rapidly estimating the updated state of the CORINE land-cover map at the frequency with which the OpenStreetMap (OSM) dataset is edited and extended, we propose an approach for automatically associating widely used OSM tags to Level 1 and Level 2 CORINE land-cover classes. This association is probabilistic and is undertaken based [...]

Enhancing Crowdsourced Classification on Human Settlements Utilizing Logistic Regression Aggregation and Intrinsic Context Factors

Among semi-automated methods and pre-processed data products, crowdsourcing is another tool which can help to collect information on human settlements and complement existing data, yet it’s accuracy is debated. Whereas the potential of crowdsourced datasets for training of machine learning algorithms has been explored recently, only few work has been done towards utilizing machine learning [...]
