Freshwater tufas are widespread phenomena in karst environments denoting important terrestrial paleo-environmental and paleoclimate archives. Additionally, many tufa sites are UNESCO world natural heritages, which emphasizes their societal importance (e.g. Jiuzhaigou, China; Plitvice, Croatia) and the demand for comprehensive conservation and monitoring strategies. Formation of tufas is controlled by numerous factors. The latest publication - [...]

Digital Geoarchaeology can be regarded as an intersection of disciplines that contributes to the consolidation of different academic perspectives. It represents a novel approach in terms of computer scientific methods combined with geoscientific know-how and archaeological expertise to multi-methodically investigate past human-environmental relationships (Siart et al. 2018).

In the new textbook “Digital Geoarchaeology” by Springer, which [...]

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 [...]

Maps of the spatial distribution of crop heights can strongly support agriculture in terms of efficiency and yield optimization. Recently published results of experiments of the 3D Spatial Data Processing research group describe an approach to easily extend regular agricultural machines with low-cost sensors for capturing crop heights while the machine is in the field.
Based [...]

LiDAR meets Art

An interesting 3D art project using point clouds of the 3D Spatial Data Processing research group of Prof. Bernhard Höfle (3DGeo) was recently realized by artist Gerrit Frohne-Brinkmann. The data were acquired from natural karst cave features in the Dechen Cave near Iserlohn, Germany both with a low-cost Kinect sensor and terrestrial LiDAR.
For the art [...]

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 [...]
