On November 12-13, Jannika Schäfer from KIT presented the SYSSIFOSS project at the 2nd symposium on satellite-based earth obersvation (2. Symposium zur angewandten Satellitenerdbeoachtung) in Cologne.
SYSSIFOSS is a joint project between the Institute of Geography and Geoecology (IFGG) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and the 3DGeo Research Group of Heidelberg University.
In this project [...]

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 [...]

A paper investigating the relevance of (pre-calculated) features for 3D point cloud classification using deep learning was just published in the ISPRS Annals of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.
The study presents a non-end-to-end deep learning classifier for 3D point clouds using multiple sets of input features and compares it with an implementation of the state-of-the-art [...]

From their beginnings some 4,000 years ago to their decadence around 400 b.c., the Olmec people achieved a high level of sociopolitical complexity and dominated their native geographic territory, the southern Gulf Coast of Mexico. The first Olmec capital of San Lorenzo, Veracruz, was the only site in Mesoamerica that produced [...]

Not undercover but on the cover: We were selected as cover story of the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information, Volume 6, Issue 11.

In our research on “Historic Low Wall Detection via Topographic Parameter Images Derived from Fine-Resolution DEM“, we apply rapid landscape line detection to extract historic vegetable garden walls based on topographic [...]

In September 2017, the 3D Spatial Data Processing Group (3DGeo) joined the German-Russian expedition of the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) for Polar and Marine Research to the Arctic research station Samoylov (N 72°22’, E 126°29’) in the central Lena Delta.
Under the lead of Julia Boike, the research team maintained and expanded long-term monitoring stations and [...]

The 3D spatial data processing group had the opportunity to collaborate with the team of Prof. Tzu-Ping Lin from National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan, within the frame of a study dealing with carbon emission reduction measures in urban environments.
One option of reducing carbon emission by buildings is to install photovoltaic (PV) panels in [...]
