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).

Are Crowdsourced Datasets Suitable for Specialized Routing Services? Case Study of OpenStreetMap for Routing of People with Limited Mobility

Using data generated from the crowd has become a hot topic for several application domains including transportation. However, there are concerns regarding the quality of such datasets. As one of the most important crowdsourced mapping platforms, in a recent study (1) we analyze the fitness for use of OpenStreetMap (OSM) database for routing and navigation [...]

Introducing LABS.OpenRouteService.org with Open Space Routing and the Places POI search API

Some of the results from our research are transformed into stable and professionally managed services, that are used by the wider public. A prominent example is OpenRouteService.org. Since it’s introduction in early 2008 it has been transformed now to a rigorously tested rich API that is hosted on a cloud system and that can be [...]

New QGIS-PlugIn for OSM-Routing and Accessibility Analysis using OpenRouteService

Recently a new “OSM Tools Plugin” for QGIS had been developed by Nils Nolde. It replaces the original OSMroute plugin for QGIS by Riccardo Klinger, which is now deprecated, as he unfortunately lacks the time to maintain it. Thanks a lot to Riccardo and Nils for their wonderful efforts and contributions so far! The new “OSM Tools” [...]

New Disaster OpenRouteService for Africa, South America and Indonesia released, supporting humanitarian logistics with OSM more sustainably

Recently HeiGIT @ GIScience Heidelberg released a dedicated stable disaster version of OpenRouteService (ORS) to support humanitarian logistics within specific regions of catastrophes with data from OSM in a more sustainable way. Since his start in 2008 OpenRouteServivce had been spontaneously applied for specific real world disaster cases already numerous times, for instance during the earthquakes in [...]
