Heidelberger Geoinformatiker machen im Projekt „SocialMedia2Traffic“ geokodierte Informationen nutzbar
Navigationsdienste benötigen aktuelle Verkehrsinformationen, um geeignete Routen zu ermitteln und die Fahrzeit möglichst genau zu berechnen. Dafür können nun auch frei zugängliche Daten aus Sozialen Medien und der Weltkarte OpenStreetMap genutzt werden. Ein entsprechendes System, mit dem sich aus ihnen die Verkehrsgeschwindigkeit abhängig von der Tageszeit [...]

Navigation services need time dependent information on traffic speed to generate suitable routes and yield accurate travel time estimations. However, this information is not available free of cost globally. Within the recently completed project “SocialMedia2Traffic”, we have developed a system to model traffic speed of urban roads depending on the time of day based [...]

Letzte Woche konnten wir bei der digitalen mFUND Konferenz drei unserer Projekte einem interessierten Publikum vorstellen. Im Fachforum “Die „15-Minuten-Stadt“ datenbasiert ermöglichen” haben wir gezeigt, wie die meinGrün App, das meinGrün Webportal und die angegliederten Dienste Städte dabei unterstützen könnten, die Erreichbarkeit von öffentlichen Grünflächen zu verbessern. Dabei zeigten sich auch Anknüpfungspunkte zu weiteren mFUND [...]

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 [...]

A new journal article about Methodological aspects of the spatial analysis of geosocial media feeds: from locations towards places has just been published in gis.science Vol 2 2019. It covers some main aspects and findings of the PhD Thesis of our team member Rene Westerholt (now at Warwick UK) and relates those to the analysis of place in [...]

A mechanistic understanding of human activity patterns lays a foundation for many applications. The majority of the current research aims to outline human activity patterns mainly from spatiotemporal perspectives (i.e., modeling human mobility patterns), lacking of understanding of the motivations behind behaviors. The aim of a recently published study is to model and understand human [...]

The social functionality of places (e.g. school, restaurant) partly determines human behaviors and reflects a region’s functional configuration. Semantic descriptions of places are thus valuable to a range of studies of humans and geographic spaces. Assuming their potential impacts on human verbalization behaviors, one possibility is to link the functions of places to verbal representations [...]

In the case of a disaster fast response is important and life saving. Information on blocked streets is crucial, but a the same time this infornations needs to be considered by routing engines in real-time. However, many routing engines use street network data which is at best updated once a week [...]
