Statistical parameters often vary across geographic landscapes. For instance, when the the variance of georeferenced random variables is not stable, this might hint on variegated processes or contextual conditions in different sub-regions. Analysing such heterogeneous areas is challenging because an explicit consideration of this so-called spatial heterogeneity is required. Various approaches exist that take account [...]

Finding the shortest path through open spaces is a well-known challenge for pedestrian routing engines. A common solution is routing on the open space boundary, which causes in most cases an unnecessarily long route. A possible alternative is to create a subgraph within the open space. In a recently published paper authors from GIScience Research [...]

Members of the GIScience Research Group Heidelberg and Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT) had a really great visit to the fancy “Haus der Astronomie” (Wow, the architecture mimics a spiral galaxy!), the Max Plank Institute of Astronomie and the historic Landessternwarte Königstuhl (state observatory) from 1898. An interactive trip through the galaxy and beyond was [...]
