Professur für Geoinformatik / GIScience (GIS)

Titelbild

Die Forschungsgruppe Geoinformatik betreibt angewandte und Grundlagenforschung an der Schnittstelle zwischen der Geographie und den quantitativ-analytischen Wissenschaften. Dabei liegt unser Fokus auf der Untersuchung nutzergenerierter Geoinformationen. Zu diesem Zweck entwickeln wir innovative Methodiken und Analyseansätze. Unser assoziiertes „Heidelberger Institut für Geoinformationstechnologien“ (HeiGIT), dessen Aufbau aktuell von der Klaus Tschira Stiftung unterstützt wird, erlaubt uns dabei, die in der Forschung erlangten Erkenntnisse direkt in praktische Lösungsansätze umzusetzen. Darüber hinaus unterstützen wir die Lehre in unseren Geographie-Studiengängen in Form eines großen quantitativ-methodisch und technologisch ausgerichteten Kursangebotes.

Beachten Sie bitte unsere offenen Stellenangebote.
