Establishing the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology

core funded by the Klaus Tschira Stiftung

Big Spatial Data Logo

The project to establish a Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT) is part of the GIScience Research Group at the Department of Geography, Heidelberg University. The objective is to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and technology from academia to practical applications and professional services. The focus lays on the analysis, refinement, enrichment and usage of big spatial data from the crowd for innovative applications and services.

We focus initially on three areas:

  • Big Spatial Data Analytics,
  • Navigation Intelligence and Location Based Services and
  • Innovative Services for Disaster Management.

Big Spatial Data Analytics Navigation Intelligence & Location Based Services
Analyses, Quality Assurance, Refinement and Utilisation of Crowdsourced Geographic Information from the Web using Data Mining and Geocomputation

Services and References
Innovative Traffic- and Mobility Solutions, Routing- and Navigation Services based on enhanced data from different sources including OpenStreetMap and the Social Web.

Services and References

Disaster Mapping – VGI for Humanitarian Support
Supporting humanitarian activities by developing up-to-date disaster maps and providing innovative GI services during catastrophes and for mitigating risk.
