Aufbau des Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology

Das Projekt lief bis Juni 2019 und wurde als HeiGIT gGmbH weitergeführt. Aktuelle Informationen finden sich auf der Webseite des HeiGIT

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...)

Open Data: Multi-platform point clouds and orthophotos of the inland dune in Sandhausen

The commune Sandhausen (Baden-Württemberg) got its name from the inland dune, which is located in the area of the village. In 2021 and 2022, the 3DGeo group of Heidelberg University conducted UAV-based and ground-based surveys of three areas of the inland dune of Sandhausen to acquire 3D point clouds and orthophotos. The dataset is freely and [...]
