Cátedras de Geoinformática y Ciencia SIG


El foco principal se encuentra en la Información Geográfica Voluntaria (Volunteered Geographic Information, VGI). Se están desarrollando nuevos métodos de análisis espacio-temporal de fuentes de información tales como OpenStreetMap, Social Media y otros proyectos Web 2.0, los cuales van desde Twitter o Flickr, hasta cualquier otro tipo de redes geo-sociales. Muchos proyectos y servicios creados a partir de la evolución de las fuentes de información están demostrando la factibilidad de su uso en diferentes dominios. Through the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT gGmbH) at Heidelberg University, we have the opportunity to translate our research work into practical solutions.

Junto con investigar la VGI, Data Mining and LBS, el grupo de investigación tiene un fuerte enfoque en la geoinformación 3D. Bernhard Höfle lidera el trabajo en procesamiento 3D e investigación LiDAR.

Se pueden descubrir online servicios selectos (por ejemplo OpenRouteSevice.org

Novedades actuales se pueden encontrar en giscienceblog.uni-hd.de (también en RSS-Feed). También estamos en Facebook and Twitter.

The impact of recent gully filling practices on wheat yield at the Campiña landscape in Southern Spain

The significance of gully filling practices on agricultural production has been only rarely evaluated in literature. In this study, a medium-sized catchment was selected, for being representative of the conventional farming practices on annual crops in the Campiña landscape in Southern Spain. During two wheat campaigns, an analysis of the spatial and temporal evolution of [...]

UndercoverEisAgenten – “UndercoverEisAgenten” – Enabling Citizen Scientists to Monitor Permafrost Degradation

(English version below) Die Folgen des Klimawandels sind besonders stark in den höheren Breiten unseres Planeten zu spüren. Die Arktis erwärmt sich derzeit überdurchschnittlich schnell. Dies führt zum Auftauen von Permafrost (dauerhaft gefrorenen Böden) mit ernsthaften Konsequenzen für das arktische Ökosystem. Etwa ein Viertel der Landfläche in der Nördlichen Hemisphäre ist durch Permafrost gekennzeichnet. Darin sind [...]

In Memoriam Peter Meusburger
Peter Meusburger

On 18 December 2017, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Peter Meusburger died far too soon. We mourn for a great scientist, teacher and colleague. In the mid 90s he implemented the first GIS pool at Heidelberg University and started GIS related research. He will not be forgotten. ((Message of the University)
