Cátedras de Geoinformática y Ciencia SIG

Titelbild

Una parte esencial de los focos de investigación en la ciencia de SIG (Geoinformática) se reflejan en la escuela de graduados de doctorado (CrowdAnalyser). Este grupo está constituido por numerosos estudiantes de doctorado e investigadores de posdoctorado, quienes estudian la calidad y potencial uso del contenido generado por usuarios (user-generated content, UGC). 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. Adicionalmente se están desarrollando nuevos métodos para geoinformación 3D sobre la base de crowdsourcing.

Junto con investigar la VGI, Data Mining and LBS, el grupo de investigación tiene un fuerte enfoque en la geoinformación 3D. Las áreas correspondientes a ésta investigación comprenden la adquisición y recuperación de datos usando lo último en sensores remotos 3D tales como el escaneo laser (es decir LiDAR), enriquecidos por otras fuentes potenciales como son los datos crowdsourced provistos por “sensores humanos”. Aquí el foco primario es el desarrollo de algoritmos basados en SIG para el procesamiento y análisis de datos 3D, con el fin de mejorar la comprensión de fenómenos geográficos. Sus aplicaciones abarcan ambientes naturales (por ejemplo geomorfología, agricultura y silvicultura de precisión), y paisajes hechos por el hombre (por ejemplo Arqueología y patrimonio cultural digital, evaluación de potencial solar para edificios y modelos de precios hedónicos utilizando datos laser 3D).

Bernhard Höfle lidera el trabajo en procesamiento 3D e investigación LiDAR.

La investigación del grupo también aborda la investigación y desarrollo de nuevos Servicios de Información Geográfica (SIG) basados en la web, con diferentes ámbitos de aplicación tales como el manejo de desastres, eHumanities, agricultura, transportes, energía y medio ambiente.

Se pueden descubrir online servicios selectos (por ejemplo OpenRouteSevice.org, uni-heidelberg.de/openmapsurfer etc.).

Novedades actuales se pueden encontrar en giscienceblog.uni-hd.de (también en RSS-Feed).

Mobile low-cost 3D camera maize crop height measurements under field conditions

Maps of the spatial distribution of crop heights can strongly support agriculture in terms of efficiency and yield optimization. Recently published results of experiments of the 3D Spatial Data Processing research group describe an approach to easily extend regular agricultural machines with low-cost sensors for capturing crop heights while the machine is in the field. Based [...]

2nd CFP Special Issue: “Crowdsourcing for Urban Geoinformatics”, Deadline End of Nov 2017, Open Access by Taylor & Francis, no publishing costs

Crowdsourcing for Urban Geoinformatics Aims and Scope Modern mobile devices are pervasively equipped with embedded sensors and cameras, and allow the positioning of media contents within geographic space. In combination with the Web 2.0 paradigm, this has led to the crowdsourcing approach, which in turn has become an important data acquisition technique. It is now possible to [...]

GIScience welcomes New Master Students

Yesterday, GIScience Heidelberg was welcoming our new master students. After a general introduction into our teaching philosophy, our core courses and our institutes (HeiGIT, HCE, IWR), we were giving insights into the  specialization in GIScience/Geoinformatics, which is possible in the Geography Master Programme. As our teaching is research-based and research-oriented we were presenting most recent state-of-the-art [...]
