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).

Determination of building inundation depths based on user-generated flood images - new study published

In our recently published study “Direct local building inundation depth determination in 3-D point clouds from user-generated flood images” we present a new approach for deriving local building inundation depth from ordinary user-generated flood images captured during a flood event. After reconstructing a 3-D scene of the building of interest with close-range photogrammetry (CRP) algorithms, [...]

Adding Landmark based Navigation Instructions to OpenRouteService

A recently published paper (Rousell & Zipf 2017) presents a prototype navigation service extending OpenRouteService (Schmitz et al. 2008) that extracts landmarks suitable for pedestrian navigation instructions from the OSM dataset based on several metrics. In general, when providing instructions on how to get somewhere, people generally include landmarks in their instructions - “Turn left [...]

Happy Birthday MapSwipe!

Already one year ago that MapSwipe was officially launched! A big thank you to our contributors for your support - one year of tapping, swiping and putting families on the map! In just one year thousands of users contributed more than 10 million taps and thereby provided crucial information on unmapped places. In projects like shown below settlement [...]

Martin Hämmerle receives PhD

Yesterday, our colleague Dr. Martin Hämmerle defended his PhD thesis with great success. We would like to congratulate him - with our sincere thanks for his hard work and amazing research the last years. Martin is an expert on 3D geodata (with focus on 3D point clouds from LiDAR and photogrammetry), methods for 3D processing and [...]

3D bathymetry measurements in shallow-water environments with a low-cost sensor - study published

To take bathymetric measurements in areas with shallow water is very challenging for methods such as SONAR or bathymetric LiDAR. In our study “Assessing the Potential of a Low-Cost 3-D Sensor in Shallow-Water Bathymetry”, we examine the performance of a low-cost 3D camera when capturing bathymetry in waters up to 0.4 m depth. The tested measurement [...]
