How does a sandy beach naturally restore after a storm event? Invaluable information on this process is provided by a highly temporal (hourly) time series of 3D point cloud data acquired over several months at the beach of Kijkduin (NL). The permanent LiDAR system is operated by a team of TU Delft researchers in the [...]

This morning, the Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung (RNZ) published an article (in German) about our research on 4D LiDAR for snow cover monitoring. The angle for the article by Doris Burger is the Environmental Research Station Schneefernerhaus near the summit of the Zugspitze, where members of the 3DGeo recently acquired a highly temporal 3D time series dataset of [...]

The all-new terrestrial laser scanner (TLS) of the 3DGeo group (Prof. Bernhard Höfle) has been set up at the Environmental Research Station Schneefernerhaus over one week (mid of April 2018) to capture a unique highly temporal time series of the melting and degrading snow cover during the April’s week with the warmest daily maximum temperatures [...]

… by acquiring data only when and where changes occur.
In this project on Autonomous 3D Earth Observation of Dynamic Landscapes (Auto3Dscapes), a novel strategy of permanent 3D observation will be developed incorporating observed topographic changes as feedback and dynamically adapting the acquisition parameters and analysis methods.
Permanent 3D Earth observation is currently challenged by the strong [...]

Capturing and quantifying the world in three dimensions (x,y,z) using light detection and ranging (lidar) technology drives fundamental advances in the Earth and Ecological Sciences (EES). However, additional lidar dimensions offer the possibility to transcend basic 3-D mapping capabilities, including i) the physical time (t) dimension from repeat lidar [...]

The Ministry of Science, Research and Arts, Baden-Wuerttemberg has funded a new research project called 4DEMON, which will approach the research front of 4D Near Real-Time Environmental Monitoring.
Our physical environment underlies permanent changes in space and time with strongly varying triggers, frequencies, magnitudes and also consequences to humans. Monitoring of Earth surface processes [...]
