This week, the 3DGeo participated in the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2019 with two presentations among the sessions of the Laser Scanning Workshop with many interesting talks and poster.
Presentations were given by Ashutosh Kumar in the Machine Learning Session and Katharina Anders in the Change Detection Session.
Highlight: The work by Ashutosh Kumar on feature relevance in [...]

Can you imagine how much sand is being moved on the beach in the course of a week? Did you ever observe truckloads of sand being transported on the beach in the absence of storms and bulldozers? It is hardly possible to estimate to the naked eye, but can be quantified with permanent terrestrial laser [...]

From 01-04 April 2019, the 3DGeo and FCGL research groups organized STAP19, a compact course and workshop on Spatial and Temporal Analysis of Geographic Phenomena at the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR, Heidelberg University).

In a mix of lectures, invited talks and hands-on sessions, the participants learned about processing and analysis of 3D geodata, particularly [...]

New Highlights at STAP19

Three invited speakers are now joining the compact course and workshop STAP19 on Spatial and Temporal Analysis of Geographic Phenomena organized by the 3DGeo and FCGL at IWR in Heidelberg.
Dr. Gottfried Mandlburger (Institute for Photogrammetry, University of Stuttgart) will give a talk on methods of feature and information extraction from geographic 3D point clouds. He [...]

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 [...]

On Wednesday, Roderik Lindenbergh from TU Delft (NL) gave an exciting talk on robust geometry extraction in large spatial point clouds in the frame of the IWR colloquium at the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing. With focus on robust and novel methods of geoinformation extraction from these special datasets, the audience was taken on a [...]

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 [...]
