Professur für Geoinformatik / GIScience (GIS)

Titelbild

Die Abteilung Geoinformatik betreibt angewandte und Grundlagenforschungim Bereich GIScience, Geographie und Geoinformatik. Dabei liegt ein Fokus auf der Untersuchung nutzergenerierter Geoinformationen. Zu diesem Zweck entwickeln wir innovative Methodiken und Analyseansätze. Das „Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology“ (HeiGIT), dessen Aufbau aktuell von der Klaus Tschira Stiftung unterstützt wird, erlaubt uns dabei, die in der Forschung erlangten Erkenntnisse in praktische Lösungsansätze umzusetzen. Zudem unterstützen wir die Lehre in unseren Geographie-Studiengängen in Form eines breiten quantitativ-methodisch und technologisch ausgerichteten Kursangebotes - im Master Geographie ist dabei die Wahl eines ausgewiesenen Schwerpunktes "Geoinformatik" möglich.

Beachten Sie bitte unsere offenen Stellenangebote.

Successful PhD Defence by René Westerholt on The Analysis of Spatially Superimposed and Heterogeneous Random Variables Using the Example of Geosocial Media Data

This week our GIScience Heidelberg team member Rene Westerholt most successfully defended his PhD! Congratulations! Very well deserved! The thesis is located at the interface between spatial analysis methodology and the characteristics of spatially superimposed random variables. Three types of contributions are presented: (i) the interactions of spatial analysis techniques with spatially superimposed random variables are investigated; (ii) novel [...]

Use of multi-objective optimization to assess trade-offs of urban expansion in Switzerland

One of the many unwanted side effects of urban growth is the loss of fertile soils since most citizens and villages have been founded in close proximity to fertile soils. Preserving high-quality soils however can conflict with the objective of developing compact urban patterns. A team from researches at the GIScience group, the ETH [...]

In Memoriam Peter Meusburger
Peter Meusburger

Am 18. Dezember 2017 starb viel zu früh Prof. Dr. Dr.h.c. Peter Meusburger. Wir trauern um einen großen Wissenschaftler, Lehrer und geschätzten Kollegen. Mitte der 90er etablierte er den ersten GIS-Pool an der Universität Heidelberg und startete GIS-bezogene Forschungsaktivitäten. Wir werden Ihn nicht vergessen. (Trauermeldung der Universität)
