Recently a book chapter on some of our work in the MayaArch3D project on “Structuring Archaeological Data to Deliver Interactive, Transparent 3D Reconstructions in a 3D WebGIS” has been published in the edited book “3D Research Challenges in Cultural Heritage II”.
Creating 3D reconstructions is a common approach today in archaeology and cultural heritage. The problem [...]

In agriculture, information about the spatial distribution of crop height is valuable for applications such as biomass and yield estimation, or increasing field work efficiency in terms of fertilizing, applying pesticides, irrigation, etc. Established methods for capturing crop height often comprise restrictions in terms of cost and time efficiency, flexibility, and temporal and spatial resolution [...]

We are pleased to announce the publication of the study “Characterizing tufa barrages in relation to channel bed morphology in a small karstic river by airborne LiDAR topo-bathymetry” in the Proceedings of the Geologists’ Association. The manuscript is already available online (http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.pgeola.2016.10.004)

The motivation of the study is the high value of freshwater tufas in karstic [...]

On the GIScience GITHub, two new tools are now available:
The Heidelberg LiDAR Operations Simulator HELIOS is a software package for interactive real-time simulation and visualization of terrestrial, mobile and airborne laser scanning surveys.
Own virtual scenes can be generated by combining for example terrain models with other objects (buildings, vegetation). Own scan positions as well as [...]

Objectives
The main goal of the Joint Summer School 2017 is to provide participants with innovative practical and methodological skills to characterise complex terrain and objects using close-, near range and remote sensing techniques. The Summer School will be the second edition after a successful first version in 2015.
Teaching [...]

Within the 3D-MAPP project we currently developed a workflow and a web based tool, that allow volunteers (and experts) to classiffy 3D point clouds in just a few seconds. The approach combines the point cloud interpretation skills of humans and the scalability of crowdsourcing. Furthermore, crowdsourced geographic information can be of high value to automated [...]
