One of the many unwanted side effects of urban growth is the loss of fertile soils since most citizens and villages have been founded in close proximity to fertile soils. Preserving high-quality soils however can conflict with the objective of developing compact urban patterns. A team from researches at the GIScience group, the ETH [...]

The recent availability of user-generated geographic datasets allows gaining novel insights into otherwise hardly observable societal phenomena. Geosocial media forms one important source of user-generated information, which partly describes the everyday lives of people. The analysis of these kinds of data, however, requires new approaches. Geosocial media data—like those extracted [...]

Beginning of May the recently launched MAMAPA project reached yet another milestone. Four very successful MAMAPA mapathons were already organized in the Mannheimer Abendakademie, supported by CartONG, HeiGIT/ disastermappers heidelberg and local tandems, and there are hopefully many more to come… To build a sustainable future for the MAMAPA project, members of HeiGIT, CartONG and [...]

The effective monitoring of land-use and land-cover changes (LULCC) is a basic requirement for understanding socio-enviromental processes of local to global scales. Remote sensing data and methods have long been established as the most effective approach for monitoring LULCC. The potential for further increasing the effectiveness of this approach is proportional to the astonishingly large [...]
