Cátedras de Geoinformática y Ciencia SIG

Titelbild

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.).

Novedades actuales se pueden encontrar en giscienceblog.uni-hd.de (también en RSS-Feed).

10 years of OSM data history with OSM API 0.5

As our HeiGIT / GIScience team member Martin Raifer (tyr_asd) pointed out at his OSM diary, this weekend is the 10 year anniversary of OSM’s API version 0.5. He stresses the importance of this as “This is the version of the OSM-API that introduced (among other things) the version number on all OSM objects, making [...]

Exploring the geographical context for quality assessment of VGI in flood management domain

Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) has been used to complement or substitute authoritative data in flood management domain. The main issue regarding the use of volunteered information is to estimate its quality, mainly because it may suffer from heterogeneous quality. Therefore, several methods have been developed in the past few years in order to assess VGI quality. [...]

The OpenStreetMap folksonomy and its evolution

The comprehension of folksonomies is of high importance when making sense of Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI), in particular in the case of OpenStreetMap (OSM). So far, only little research has been conducted to understand the role and the evolution of folksonomies in VGI and OSM, which is despite the fact that without a comprehension of [...]
