Aufbau des Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology

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

How much do you know about Wheelmap?

Within the European FP7 project “CAP4Access“, we studied the usage of crowdsourced geographic information (and more specifically OpenStreetMap data) for improving accessibility in selected European regions. This 3 year research study led to several implementations and extensions of Open Source GI solutions with respect to OSM data quality assessment as well as wheelchair routing and [...]

Generating Customized Pleasant Pedestrian Routes Based on OpenStreetMap Data

In a newly published open access paper, we present a system that generates customized pedestrian routes entirely based on data from OpenStreetMap (OSM). The system enables users to define to what extent they would like the route to have green areas (e.g., parks, squares, trees), social places (e.g., cafes, restaurants, shops) and quieter streets (i.e., [...]

On the Way to Platial Analysis: Can Geosocial Media Provide the Necessary Impetus? - Proceedings of the First Workshop on Platial Analysis (PLATIAL’18)

The proceedings of the PLATIAL’18 workshop (organized by R Westerholt, F-B Mocnik, and A Zipf) have been published: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1475269 The concept of “place” is about to become one of the major research themes in the discipline of geographical information science (GIScience), as well as in adjoining fields. Briefly put, while locations provide objective references (e.g., point coordinates), [...]

New method for drainage ditch extraction from airborne LiDAR point clouds

In our most recent 3DGeo publication, colleagues from KU Leuven together with us developed a new method to extract drainage ditches from LiDAR point clouds in a fully automatic process. Ditches are often absent in hydrographic geodatasets and their mapping would benefit from a cost and labor effective alternative to field surveys. We propose [...]
