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-heidelberg.de (también en RSS-Feed). También estamos en Facebook and Twitter.

Exploring the Value of Microsoft ML Roads for OSM Data Quality Analysis

The completeness of the OpenStreetMap (OSM) road network has been an ongoing focus for researchers for more than 15 years. For instance, Neis et al. (2011) investigated the OSM street network evolution in Germany and compared it against road data from TomTom. Whereas obtaining reference data has been rather difficult in the past, nowadays we […]

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)
