Die MS Wissenschaft ist in Heidelberg

Bis zum 01.09.2019 kann die Austellung auf der MS Wissenschaft zum Thema “Künstliche Intelligenz” in Heidelberg besucht werden. Wir waren da und sind begeistert!
Für die Ausstellung hat das HeiGIT gemeinsam mit dem Alfred-Wegener-Institut für Polar- und Meeresforschung in Potsdam das Mitmach-Exponat Mensch und Maschine – Forschung im Team entwickelt.

Mitmach-Exponate geben auf der MS Wissenschaft in Heidelberg vom 28. August bis 1. September Einblicke in die Entwicklung und Anwendung Künstlicher Intelligenz (KI). Mit auf dem zu einer schwimmenden Ausstellung umgebauten ehemalige Kohlefrachter ist auch ein Exponat des Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT) an der Universität Heidelberg, gefördert von der Klaus Tschira Stiftung. Das [...]

A new paper on tree height estimation from TanDEM-X data has just been published in Remote Sensing of Environment. The article finds that tree height can be predicted using TanDEM-X metrics (backscatter, bistatic coherence, and interferometric height) in the sparse forest patches of the Arctic treeline zone at the transition from forest to tundra. Taking [...]

A 16-year record (2002–2017) of permafrost, active-layer, and meteorological conditions at the Samoylov Island Arctic permafrost research site, Lena River delta, northern Siberia was just published in Earth System Science Data. The long-term observational data is complemented by high-resolution topographic data acquired by terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) in 2017, when the 3DGeo Research Group joined [...]

Auch dieses Jahr geht das Ausstellungsschiff MS Wissenschaft auf Tour. Im Fokus steht das Thema Künstliche Intelligenz (KI). Mit an Bord das Exponat „Micro-Mapping“, das wir am HeiGIT in Kooperation mit dem Alfred-Wegener-Institut erstellen.
Unser Exponat stellt die Bedeutung des Menschen, besser gesagt: einer Menschenmenge („Crowd“), bei der Entwicklung von KI in den Vordergrund. Es [...]

For the fourth consecutive year, ground-based measurements of the dynamic, permafrost-underlain tundra landscape have been continued in Trail Valley (68°44′25” N 133°29′36” W). A team of permafrost researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) for Polar and Marine Research around PD Dr. Julia Boike conducted the measurements as part of a large expedition to the Canadian Northwest [...]

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 third arctic expedition to Trail Valley, located about 50 km north of Inuvik, NWT, Canada, concludes the field work within the PermaSAR project. Sabrina Marx, Katharina Anders (both: LiDAR Research Group, Heidelberg University) and Julia Boike (Alfred Wegener Institute, Potsdam) stayed a week in the research camp. We were not only able to acquire [...]
