Ecosystem service research is high on the policy agenda. Strategies to synthesize individual success stories and derive generalized results to provide guidance for policymakers and stakeholder is central to many science-policy initiatives, such as IPBES, ELD, WAVES and TEEB. However, to successfully transfer knowledge from ES case studies to environmental policies, it is necessary to [...]

Special issue information:
The last decade has seen a rapid growth in open source geospatial software and data developments. Open geospatial data applies the principles of free and openness to geospatial information, allowing communities to collaborate on a data product. Applying the lessons learned in the open source industry to geo-data collection and maintenance has led [...]

In einer aktuellen Publikation der Stadt Stuttgart wird die Erreichbarkeit von Haltestellen des öffentlichen Personennahverkehrs in Stuttgart untersucht.
Für die Berechnung der Isochronen wurde das kostenfrei nutzbare QGIS-Plugin OSM Tools verwendet. Dieses nutzt den seit 2008 verfügbaren Openrouteservice des Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT). Das Toolset umfasst Routing, Geocoding, Isochronen und Matrixberechnungen, entweder interaktiv im Kartenbereich [...]

A mechanistic understanding of human activity patterns lays a foundation for many applications. The majority of the current research aims to outline human activity patterns mainly from spatiotemporal perspectives (i.e., modeling human mobility patterns), lacking of understanding of the motivations behind behaviors. The aim of a recently published study is to model and understand human [...]

Nowadays, several research projects show interest in employing volunteered geographic information (VGI) to improve their systems through using up-to-date and detailed data. The European project CAP4Access was one of the successful examples of such international-wide research projects that aimed to improve the accessibility of people with restricted mobility using crowdsourced data. In this project, OpenStreetMap [...]

Understanding how citizens interact with transportation system is a key to solving a variety of urban issues in general and traffic congestion in particular. Recently, scholars have put efforts on the pertinent work ranging from developing traffic predictors to understanding human mobility and activity patterns. Multiple types of data have been used, of which crowdsourced [...]
