Dear Colleagues,
Earth observation devices and geoinformation technologies, including remote sensing data, platforms, algorithms, geographic information science (GISc), and spatial analysis techniques have played a major role in monitoring the dynamics of our environment and landscape. Additionally, emerging active and passive sensing approaches, such as crowdsourcing, Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI), citizen science (CS), participatory sensing, humans-as-sensors, [...]

In our new paper we present a systematic literature review on geographic information analysis and web-based geoportals to explore malnutrition in Sub-Saharan Africa.
563 articles are identified from the searches, from which a total of nine articles and eight geoportals meet inclusion criteria. The review suggests that the spatial dimension of malnutrition [...]

The online magazine 3D Visualization World (www.3dvisworld.com) features an article about the 3D capturing campaigns at Lorsch Abbey:
‘The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lorsch Abbey is located in Hesse roughly between Heidelberg and Frankfurt/Main, Germany. Laser scanners generating 3D point clouds of the structure and photogrammetric Structure-from-Motion (SfM) approaches were used to study and create [...]

Last month members of the GIScience Research Group of Heidelberg University and the Doctoral College GIScience of Salzburg University met for a few days at a joint PhD Summer School on “Explorations in GIScience”. This included workshops, presentations and most importantly lively discussions on a range of topics related to research in GIScience. The set [...]

This summer semester’s laser scanning course comprises a series of field trips done by small student groups of maximum two persons. Campaign planning and hands-on laser scanning in the field were conducted by the students and supervised by professor Bernhard Höfle, tutor Jörn profe, Kristina König, and Martin Hämmerle. Intensive learning for each single [...]

In one of Germany’s most visited show caves, the Dechen Cave near Iserlohn, different objects were captured with the GIScience’s high-end terrestrial laser scanner Riegl VZ-400 and the low-cost structured light camera Microsoft Kinect™ by Johannes Fuchs, Bernhard Höfle, Martin Hämmerle (LiDAR Research Group) and Andrea Schröder-Ritzrau (Institute of Environmental Physics). Morphometric features that are [...]

On Wednesday, 19th of March, the Kings Hall (Torhalle) facades at UNESCO World Heritage Site Lorsch Abbey were captured in 3D with a terrestrial laser scanner Riegl VZ-400 (provided by the Chair of GIScience) by Martin Hämmerle (LiDAR Research Group). The produced data set consists of about 65 million laser points and will allow for [...]
