Aufbau des Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology

getragen von der Klaus Tschira Stiftung

Das Projekt zum Aufbau des Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT) ist an der Abteilung Geoinformatik am Geographischen Institut der Universität Heidelberg angesiedelt. Das Ziel ist es den Wissens- und Technologietransfer aus der Geoinformatik-Grundlagenforschung in die Praxis auf Basis innovativer Geoinformationstechnologien zu verbessern. Der Fokus liegt auf der Umsetzung praxisbezogener Projekte und Dienste vor allem in den Bereichen

  • Big Spatial Data Analytics,
  • Intelligente Ortsbasierte Dienste und Navigation, sowie
  • Disaster-Mapping für humanitäre Hilfen.

Big Spatial Data Analytics Navigation Intelligence & Location Based Services
Analyse, Veredelung und Nutzung von Geoinformationen aus nutzergenerierten Geodaten durch Spatial Data Mining, Machine Learning und Geocomputation

Leistungen und Referenzen
