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), 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 Kursangebotes - im Master Geographie ist dabei die Wahl eines ausgewiesenen Schwerpunktes "Geoinformatik" möglich.

Beachten Sie bitte unsere offenen Stellenangebote.

Using Openrouteservice in the data science platform alteryx

You can also use Openrouteservice via the self-service data analytics plattform alteryx, when you are a user of that data science product. Pablo Sáenz de Tejada (The Information Lab) has shared some macros on the alteryx public gallery using the Openrouteservice API that allows you to geocode addresses, calculate routes and create isochrones using the alteryx environment. https://gallery.alteryx.com/#!app/Calculate-Isochrones/5c1931b00462d724a455ae28 https://gallery.alteryx.com/#!app/Calculate-Route/5c193104826fd30084be8fa7 https://gallery.alteryx.com/#!app/Geocode-Addresses/5c1963f08a93370dc8e4de35 And [...]

OpenStreetMap history explorer - ohsomeHeX published

The exploration of the history of OpenStreetMap data presents an important step to uncover semantic connections, regions of interest and their contiguity in time and space at varying scales. Therefore, the HeiGIT Big Spatial Data Analytics team presents a first beta version of the OpenStreetMap History eXplorer (ohsomeHeX). It resembles the idea of the OSMatrix¹, [...]

How can LiDAR data help to understand early Olmec subsistence in Mexico?

From their beginnings some 4,000 years ago to their decadence around 400 b.c., the Olmec people achieved a high level of sociopolitical complexity and dominated their native geographic territory, the southern Gulf Coast of Mexico. The first Olmec capital of San Lorenzo, Veracruz, was the only site in Mesoamerica that produced [...]

The future of OpenMapSurfers tiles

OpenMapSurfer is the name of a web tile service based on OpenStreetMap data developed by Maxim Rylov and hosted by the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology. The map style is a general purpose “basemap” layer featuring some unique properties, such as high cartographic quality label placement, see floor bathymetry, and a pleasant warm color scheme. OpenMapSurfer [...]

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)
