This week our GIScience Heidelberg team member Rene Westerholt most successfully defended his PhD! Congratulations! Very well deserved!

The thesis is located at the interface between spatial analysis methodology and the characteristics of spatially superimposed random variables. Three types of contributions are presented:
(i) the interactions of spatial analysis techniques with spatially superimposed random variables
are investigated;
(ii) novel [...]

This morning, the Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung (RNZ) published an article (in German) about our research on 4D LiDAR for snow cover monitoring. The angle for the article by Doris Burger is the Environmental Research Station Schneefernerhaus near the summit of the Zugspitze, where members of the 3DGeo recently acquired a highly temporal 3D time series dataset of [...]
