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.

3D WebGIS: From Visualization to Analysis. An Efficient Browser-Based 3D Line-of-Sight Analysis

3D WebGIS systems have been mentioned in the literature almost since the beginning of the graphical web era in the late 1990s. The potential use of 3D WebGIS is linked to a wide range of scientific and application domains, such as planning, controlling, tracking or simulation in crisis management, military mission planning, urban information systems, [...]

Coupling maximum entropy modeling with geotagged social media data to determine the geographic distribution of tourists

Modeling the geographic distribution of tourists at a tourist destination is crucial when it comes to enhancing the destination’s resilience to disasters and crises, as it enables the efficient allocation of limited resources to precise geographic locations. Seldom have existing studies explored the geographic distribution of tourists through understanding the mechanisms behind it. In a [...]

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)
