Aerial view of Heidelberg’s old town with the university square. The lack of shade causes heat stress conditions and thus makes the square almost unusable at increased temperatures. This was a site of the study on climate change adaptation of public spaces (Foshag et al. 2020) (Photo: Kathrin Foshag).

Climate adaptation strategies to support and protect [...]

Worldwide, more and more people are affected by flooding. Local knowledge provides a valuable source of information for disaster risk reduction. We present an approach for visualizing and formalizing this local knowledge.
More information can be found in the paper:
Klonner, C., Usón, T.J., Aeschbach, N. Höfle, B. (2020): Participatory Mapping and Visualization of Local Knowledge: An [...]

The concept of place has recently gained importance in geographical information science (GIScience). One reason for this is the emergence of user-generated geographic information, which partially represents subjective everyday geographical encounters. No consensus, however, on how to deal with place in GIScience has yet been reached. A recently published paper presents a systematic literature review [...]
