Last week our team member Dr. Michael Schultz successfully defended his PhD Defence about
Tropical deforestation monitoring using Landsat time series and breakpoint detection
at Wageningen University and Research (WUR). It was supervised by Prof. Dr M. Herold (Professor of Geo-information Science and Remote Sensing at Wageningen University & Research). We congratulate cordially! Keep up the good [...]

The effective monitoring of land-use and land-cover changes (LULCC) is a basic requirement for understanding socio-enviromental processes of local to global scales. Remote sensing data and methods have long been established as the most effective approach for monitoring LULCC. The potential for further increasing the effectiveness of this approach is proportional to the astonishingly large [...]

As a founding member of Heidelberg Center for the Environment (HCE) we want to share this important date of the HCE’s “Heidelberg Bridge” Colloquium series.
This semester the Institute of Geography is involved with two presentations and one of these is from the GIScience group with Dr. Sven Lautenbach talking about his work on ecosystem [...]

With the aim of rapidly estimating the updated state of the CORINE land-cover map at the frequency with which the OpenStreetMap (OSM) dataset is edited and extended, we propose an approach for automatically associating widely used OSM tags to Level 1 and Level 2 CORINE land-cover classes. This association is probabilistic and is undertaken based [...]

In a recently published study (1), we produced a web based land use land cover (LULC) product based on OSM tags which are constantly updated by contributors/volunteers, and present a Remote Sensing based solution when tags were absent for a test site. We harness the combined benefit of an open source and ever-growing machine generated [...]

Recently we introduced the website OSMlanduse.org . This week it is featured as “Image of the Week” in the OSM Wiki. Thanks a lot for the recognition! It is already the second OSM Wiki image of the week from GIScience Heidelberg in this short year,as in week 4 OSMvis from our group member Franz-Benjamin was [...]

Today a new global WebMap prototype “OSMLanduse.org” has been launched by GIScience Research Group Heidelberg. The map provides worldwide Landuse/Landcover information on the basis of OpenStreetMap (OSM) data. This is based on our earlier work on testing the suitability of OpenStreetMap for deriving landuse and landcover information (LULC).
LULC data is highly relevant for many research [...]

this week sees the Kick-Off Meeting of a new EU Horizon 2020 project called LandSense at International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IASA) Laxemburg Austria.

The overall aim of the LandSense project is to build an innovative citizen observatory in the field of LandUse LandCover (LULC), which collects data both actively (through citizens) and [...]
