We’ve recently finalised the programme of a workshop on “spatial urban analytics with user-generated geographic information”. The event is conjoined with the 2017 International Conference at the Royal Geographical Society in London and is co-chaired by René Westerholt (GIScience Heidelberg). We received methodological as well as empirical contributions, which reflects the breadth of the complex [...]

Crowd assisted sensing and crowdsourcing, as well as their underlying pervasive systems and communications are a fast growing research area and one of the enabling technologies of smart cities and smart infrastructures, as well as important building blocks in healthcare monitoring and vehicular technologies. Crowd assisted sensing (often called participatory sensing) opens new ways for [...]

We cordially invite all interested to our forthcoming talk next Monday about the cross-cutting theme of smart city research. Dr Jochen Wendel from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology will report about an open data infrastructure that allows data storage, data exchange, data analysis, as well as data visualization across projects and domains. He illustrates [...]
