Recently a new paper about Estimating OpenStreetMap Missing Built-up Areas using Pre-trained Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) has been presented at the AGILE GIScience conference 2019 in Cyprus.
Although built-up areas cover only a small proportion of the earth’s surface, these areas are closely tied to most of the world’s population and the economic output, which makes the [...]

A new paper on tree height estimation from TanDEM-X data has just been published in Remote Sensing of Environment. The article finds that tree height can be predicted using TanDEM-X metrics (backscatter, bistatic coherence, and interferometric height) in the sparse forest patches of the Arctic treeline zone at the transition from forest to tundra. Taking [...]

Geospatial data is key for empowering citizens around the globe and to achieve the SDGs— if geodata is made openly available and easy to be put to use. The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team (HOT) is in this regard coordinating and supporting humanitarian action and community resilience through open mapping.
The GIScience Research Group has supported HOT’s work [...]
