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 [...]

As part of the lecture “Geodatenerfassung”, geography students in their first semester turned theory of digital geodata acquisition into practice. Based on their aims and requirements, the students acquired geodata with different methods and sensors. Using a high-end Riegl VZ-2000i terrestrial laser scanner, two groups captured the old town of Heidelberg and a limestone [...]

Airborne light detection and ranging (LiDAR) data provides reliable information on forest structure. Related forest inventory approaches recently evolved into operational tools. Today, further optimization of existing approaches is pursued to ensure high data quality of the inventory information and cost-efficiency over varied environmental and silvicultural conditions. Synthetic LiDAR data has been suggested as useful [...]
