Cátedras de Geoinformática y Ciencia SIG


Una parte esencial de los focos de investigación en la ciencia de SIG (Geoinformática) se reflejan en la escuela de graduados de doctorado (CrowdAnalyser). Este grupo está constituido por numerosos estudiantes de doctorado e investigadores de posdoctorado, quienes estudian la calidad y potencial uso del contenido generado por usuarios (user-generated content, UGC). El foco principal se encuentra en la Información Geográfica Voluntaria (Volunteered Geographic Information, VGI). Se están desarrollando nuevos métodos de análisis espacio-temporal de fuentes de información tales como OpenStreetMap, Social Media y otros proyectos Web 2.0, los cuales van desde Twitter o Flickr, hasta cualquier otro tipo de redes geo-sociales. Muchos proyectos y servicios creados a partir de la evolución de las fuentes de información están demostrando la factibilidad de su uso en diferentes dominios. Adicionalmente se están desarrollando nuevos métodos para geoinformación 3D sobre la base de crowdsourcing.

Junto con investigar la VGI, Data Mining and LBS, el grupo de investigación tiene un fuerte enfoque en la geoinformación 3D. Las áreas correspondientes a ésta investigación comprenden la adquisición y recuperación de datos usando lo último en sensores remotos 3D tales como el escaneo laser (es decir LiDAR), enriquecidos por otras fuentes potenciales como son los datos crowdsourced provistos por “sensores humanos”. Aquí el foco primario es el desarrollo de algoritmos basados en SIG para el procesamiento y análisis de datos 3D, con el fin de mejorar la comprensión de fenómenos geográficos. Sus aplicaciones abarcan ambientes naturales (por ejemplo geomorfología, agricultura y silvicultura de precisión), y paisajes hechos por el hombre (por ejemplo Arqueología y patrimonio cultural digital, evaluación de potencial solar para edificios y modelos de precios hedónicos utilizando datos laser 3D).

Bernhard Höfle lidera el trabajo en procesamiento 3D e investigación LiDAR.

La investigación del grupo también aborda la investigación y desarrollo de nuevos Servicios de Información Geográfica (SIG) basados en la web, con diferentes ámbitos de aplicación tales como el manejo de desastres, eHumanities, agricultura, transportes, energía y medio ambiente.

Se pueden descubrir online servicios selectos (por ejemplo OpenRouteSevice.org, uni-heidelberg.de/openmapsurfer etc.).

A brief intro to the OpenStreetMap History Database (OSHDB) API

The OpenStreetMap History Database (OSHDB) is the main data backend developed at HeiGIT for the ohsome OSM history analytics platform, that will make OSM’s history data more accessible for further analysis. OpenStreetMap (OSM) is a rich resource of freely available geographic information. However, the possibilities for analyzing OSM data on a global scale are limited because of [...]

Celebrating 10 Years of Openrouteservice - The First OpenStreetMap Route Planner

Exactly 10 years ago openrouteservice.org came online for the very first time. Back then it was the very first online routing service consuming data from OpenStreetMap.org covering larger areas. So to say it is ‘the original‘ OSM routing service. It initially started with Germany only and soon we provided routing for Europe and finally the [...]

Nama Budhathoki (Kathmandu Living Labs) visit at GIScience/ HeiGIT- The power of civic tech or how to connect data, GIS technology and people

Just before the Easter holidays, our GIScience/HeiGIT team hosted Dr. Nama Raj Budhathoki, Executive Director of Kathmandu Living Labs (KLL), to take our existing collaboration to the next level. KLL and GIScience/HeiGIT have collaborated in various projects in the last few years. GIScience/HeiGIT have contributed to OSM data of Nepal through mapathons in Heidelberg. Relevant contents [...]

In Memoriam Peter Meusburger
Peter Meusburger

On 18 December 2017, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Peter Meusburger died far too soon. We mourn for a great scientist, teacher and colleague. In the mid 90s he implemented the first GIS pool at Heidelberg University and started GIS related research. He will not be forgotten. ((Message of the University)
