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.

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)
