Within our interdisciplinary collaborative research project MUSIEKE (Multidimensional Perceptibility of Cultural Heritage) the Jupiter Column (”Iupittergigantensäule”) of Ladenburg was scanned in 3D and in very high detail for the first time. Our colleagues from the IWR (FCGL Group of Hubert Mara) performed the measurement campaign.
In this report (in German) the SWR 4 radio [...]

We are happy to report that our task designed for the citizen science platform crowdcrafting.org was selected as their #ProjectOfTheWeek. This will help us to finish our experiment to derive information about sidewalks using Mapillary street level imagery with the support of the crowd very soon. Sidewalk information is an important resource for accessible route [...]
