Professur für Geoinformatik / GIScience (GIS)

Titelbild

Die Abteilung Geoinformatik betreibt Grundlagenforschung und angewandte Forschung im Bereich GIScience und Geoinformatik. Dabei liegt ein Fokus auf der Untersuchung nutzergenerierter Geoinformationen (VGI, Crowdsourcing, Citizen Science). Zu diesem Zweck entwickeln wir innovative Methoden und Analyseverfahren u.a. in den Bereichen Humanitäre Hilfe (Katastrophenmanagement), Smart Mobility und Big Spatial Data Analytics (VGI Datenqualität etc.). Das „Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology“ (HeiGIT gGmbH), An-Institut an der Universität Heidelberg, 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 Kursangebotes - im Master Geographie ist dabei die Wahl eines ausgewiesenen Schwerpunktes "Geoinformatik" möglich.

Beachten Sie bitte unsere offenen Stellenangebote.

Humanitarian OSM Stats: How to monitor humanitarian mapping in the HOT Tasking Manager? - Part 3

Since 2010 organized humanitarian mapping has evolved as a constant and growing element of the global OpenStreetMap (OSM) community. With more than 7,000 projects in 150 countries humanitarian mapping has become a global community effort. Due to this large amount of projects, it can be difficult to get an overview on mapping [...]

Hells Bells - interactive 3D view of underwater speleothems

In collaboration with the Institute of Earth Sciences at Heidelberg University, the 3DGeo group reconstructed underwater speleothems in a cave in Yucatán, Mexico. The so-called “Hells Bells” are fascinating formations in several sinkholes, at the boundary layer between fresh- and saltwater. The full 3D mesh model obtained from several thousand photographs taken by a [...]

Fully automatic spatiotemporal segmentation of 3D LiDAR time series for the extraction of natural surface changes

When and where do changes occur in dynamic natural landscapes? A new method has been published that enables the automatic extraction of surface changes from entire time series of 3D point clouds. The developed method of spatiotemporal segmentation extracts changes regarding their surface change history, which makes it particularly useful for natural scenes that are [...]

The evolution of humanitarian mapping within the OpenStreetMap community

In the past 10 years, the collaborative maps of OpenStreetMap (OSM) have been used to support humanitarian efforts around the world as well as to fill important data gaps for implementing major development frameworks such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In a recently accepted paper we provide a comprehensive assessment of the evolution of [...]

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)
