OpenStreetMap (OSM) has been intensively used to support humanitarian aid activities, especially in the Global South. Its data availability in the Global South has been greatly improved via recent humanitarian mapping campaigns. However, large rural areas are still incompletely mapped. The timely provision of map data is often essential for the work of humanitarian actors [...]

New paper published on healthcare access in Sub-Saharan Africa
It is almost a year since SARS-CoV-2 first emerged in China. The virus spread all over the world. Countries south of the Sahara did not receive much attention. Although outbreaks here have a strong risk potential due to existing crises. In our new published paper we modeled [...]

In a new publication, we show how deep neural networks can be used in an end-to-end manner for the classification of 3D point clouds from airborne laser scan data. The research, based on the award-winning diploma thesis of Lukas Winiwarter at TU Wien, has now been published in “PFG - Photogrammetrie, Fernerkundung, Geoinformation“, the Journal [...]

INTERDISCIPLINARY NATURE STUDY SHOWS THAT INNER TOWN GREEN DIRECTLY INFLUENCES ON CITY RESIDENTS
Inner city green areas such as lawns, flowerbeds, trees or parks can directly improve the well-being of city dwellers. These are the findings of a recent study conducted by scientists from GIScience Research Group at Heidelberg University and the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation [...]

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 [...]

Land is a spare resource so it makes sense to think about how to use it most efficiently. This leads to the problem of land use allocation under consideration of trade-offs. Multi-objective optimization algorithms are a tool quantify the trade-offs by estimating the Pareto-optimal land use allocations. Often, constraints in the solution space have to [...]
