Over the last two years, we have witnessed the ever-fast growth of micro-mobility services (e.g., e-bikes and e-scooters), which brings both challenges and innovations to the traditional urban transportation systems. For example, they provide an opportunity to better address the “last mile” problem due to their convenience, flexibility and zero emission. As such, it is [...]

Humans rely on clean water for their health, well-being, and various socio-economic activities. During the past few years, the COVID-19 pandemic has been a constant reminder of about the importance of hygiene and sanitation for public health. The most common approach to securing clean water supplies for this purpose is via wastewater treatment. To date, [...]

OpenStreetMap (OSM) has been intensively used to support humanitarian aid activities, especially in the Global South. Its data availability in the Global South has been greatly improved via recent humanitarian mapping campaigns. However, large rural areas are still incompletely mapped. The timely provision of map data is often essential for the work of humanitarian actors [...]

A new data article on “A high-resolution 4D terrestrial laser scan dataset of the Kijkduin beach-dune system, The Netherlands” was just published in Scientific Data. Along with the fully openly available dataset, the article presents insights into the importance of frequent and spatially detailed surface measurements - and what to do with them.

While the international community has made progress in adopting goals and agreements in the field of climate change mitigation, efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are significantly lacking behind global ambitions for acceptable climate change. In a recently published perspective in the journal Climate Action, we discuss whether a window of opportunity for more [...]

In recently published work, we show how change analysis from near-continuous 3D time series improves by considering full temporal information. How can it be done? Using 4D objects-by-change!
The method was applied to an hourly time series of terrestrial laser scans acquired for snow cover monitoring. In the snow-covered scene at the Zugspitze ski resort, all [...]
