Today the time has come: The “meinGrün” web app for Dresden and Heidelberg is officially launched.
With the mobile application you can (re-)discover known and unknown green spaces and find a pleasant route to those. Users can learn about the functions of the app via virtual scavenger hunt. The app is the result of the [...]

Accurate and detailed geographical information digitizing human activity patterns plays an essential role in response to natural disasters. Volunteered geographical information, in particular OpenStreetMap (OSM), shows great potential in providing the knowledge of human settlements to support humanitarian aid, while often the availability and quality of OSM remains a major concern. The majority of existing [...]

Last week, members of GIScience Heidelberg participated in the 40th annual meeting of the DGPF (German association for photogrammetry and remote sensing) in Stuttgart, Germany.
Presentations were contributed by PhD students Lukas Winiwarter and Katharina Anders (3DGeo Research Group), as well as former GIScience fellow Jun-Prof. Dr. René Westerholt. Read up on the presented topics in [...]

According to a recent post by NASA, researchers at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, calculated the time that could have been saved if ambulance drivers and other emergency responders had near-real-time information about flooded roads, using the 2011 Southeast Asian floods as a case study. This was the first NASA study to [...]

Recently a new paper about Estimating OpenStreetMap Missing Built-up Areas using Pre-trained Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) has been presented at the AGILE GIScience conference 2019 in Cyprus.
Although built-up areas cover only a small proportion of the earth’s surface, these areas are closely tied to most of the world’s population and the economic output, which makes the [...]

Namibia is a dry and low populated country highly dependent on agriculture, with many areas experiencing land degradation accelerated by climate change. One of the most obvious and damaging manifestations of these degradation processes are gullies, which lead to great economic losses while accelerating desertification.
The development of standardized methods to [...]

The recent, sharp increase in the availability of data captured by different sensors, combined with their considerable heterogeneity, poses a serious challenge for the effective and efficient processing of remotely sensed data. Such an increase in remote sensing and ancillary data sets, however, opens up the possibility of utilizing multimodal data sets in a joint [...]

Machine Learning for Space and Earth Observation Data (ML-SEOD) 2019
Call for Papers
The Earth and Space environments are being monitored by an unprecedented amount of sensors: Earth observation satellites, sensor networks, telescopes working in different wavelengths, human records of Earth and Space events, etc. This generates a huge amount of raw data that must be processed [...]
