INTERDISCIPLINARY NATURE STUDY SHOWS THAT INNER TOWN GREEN DIRECTLY INFLUENCES ON CITY RESIDENTS
Inner city green areas such as lawns, flowerbeds, trees or parks can directly improve the well-being of city dwellers. These are the findings of a recent study conducted by scientists from GIScience Research Group at Heidelberg University and the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation [...]

Current indoor mapping approaches can detect accurate geometric information but are incapable of detecting the room type or dismiss this issue. A recently published paper investigates the feasibility of inferring the room type by using grammars based on geometric maps. Specifically, we take the research buildings at universities as examples and create a constrained attribute [...]

INTERDISZIPLINÄRE STUDIE ZEIGT, DASS INNERSTÄDTISCHES GRÜN UNMITTELBAR EINFLUSS AUF STADTBEWOHNER HAT
Innerstädtische Grünflächen wie Rasen, Blumenbeete, Bäume oder Parks können unmittelbar das Wohlbefinden im Alltag von Stadtbewohnern verbessern. Das zeigt eine aktuelle Studie, die Wissenschaftler des Zentralinstituts für Seelische Gesundheit (ZI) in Mannheim gemeinsam mit Geoinformatikern der Universität Heidelberg und Forschern des Mental mHealth Lab am [...]

Our new paper on Machine Learning and Humanitarian Mapping
Nowadays, Machine Learning and Deep Learning approaches are steadily gaining popularity within the humanitarian (mapping) community. New tools such as the ML Enabler or the rapId editor might change the way crowdsourced data is produced in the future. Hence, at the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology and [...]

Change analysis of rock glaciers is crucial to analyzing the adaptation of surface and subsurface processes to changing environmental conditions at different timescales because rock glaciers are considered as potentially unstable slopes and solid water reservoirs. To quantify surface change in complex surface topographies with varying surface orientation and roughness, [...]

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 journal article about Methodological aspects of the spatial analysis of geosocial media feeds: from locations towards places has just been published in gis.science Vol 2 2019. It covers some main aspects and findings of the PhD Thesis of our team member Rene Westerholt (now at Warwick UK) and relates those to the analysis of place in [...]

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 [...]
