Digital Geoarchaeology can be regarded as an intersection of disciplines that contributes to the consolidation of different academic perspectives. It represents a novel approach in terms of computer scientific methods combined with geoscientific know-how and archaeological expertise to multi-methodically investigate past human-environmental relationships (Siart et al. 2018).

In the new textbook “Digital Geoarchaeology” by Springer, which [...]

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 [...]

Not undercover but on the cover: We were selected as cover story of the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information, Volume 6, Issue 11.

In our research on “Historic Low Wall Detection via Topographic Parameter Images Derived from Fine-Resolution DEM“, we apply rapid landscape line detection to extract historic vegetable garden walls based on topographic [...]

Crowdsourcing for Urban Geoinformatics
Aims and Scope
Modern mobile devices are pervasively equipped with embedded sensors and cameras, and allow the positioning of media contents within geographic space. In combination with the Web 2.0 paradigm, this has led to the crowdsourcing approach, which in turn has become an important data acquisition technique. It is now possible to [...]

As it is widely accepted, cycling tends to produce health benefits and reduce air pollution. Policymakers encourage people to use bikes by improving cycling facilities as well as developing bicycle-sharing systems (BSS). It is interesting to investigate how environmental factors influence the cycling behavior of users of bicycle-sharing systems, as users of bicycle-sharing systems tend [...]

We recently published a new paper on the integration of geographic information into survey research. The paper is the outcome of a collaborative effort with colleagues from the Leibnitz Institute for the Social Sciences (GESIS) in Mannheim and from the University of Salzburg (Z_GIS) and it provides an overview of how the consideration of geographic [...]

Maps of the spatial distribution of crop heights can strongly support agriculture in terms of efficiency and yield optimization. Recently published results of experiments of the 3D Spatial Data Processing research group describe an approach to easily extend regular agricultural machines with low-cost sensors for capturing crop heights while the machine is in the field.
Based [...]
