Over the last two years, we have witnessed the ever-fast growth of micro-mobility services (e.g., e-bikes and e-scooters), which brings both challenges and innovations to the traditional urban transportation systems. For example, they provide an opportunity to better address the “last mile” problem due to their convenience, flexibility and zero emission. As such, it is [...]

Unterführungen, Treppen und hohe Bordsteinkanten sind für Menschen mit Gehbeeinträchtigungen eine große Herausforderung. Ein maßgeschneiderter Routenplaner kann aber ihre Mobilität erhöhen, indem er Wege mit möglichst wenigen Hindernissen berechnet. Dieses Beispiel zeigt, wie Geoinformationstechnologie und Geoinformatik speziellen Gruppen in der Gesellschaft ganz konkret helfen. HeiGIT, das Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology, entwickelt nicht nur passgenaue [...]

Recently a new project has been starting in the context of Climate Change Action research:
GeCO: Generating high-resolution CO2 maps by Machine Learning-based geodata fusion and atmospheric transport modelling
The spatiotemporal distribution of greenhouse gases and their sources on Earth has so far been considered mainly at relatively coarse resolutions. There is a lack of sound [...]

Large-scale mapping activities can benefit from the vastly increasing availability of earth observation (EO) data, especially when combined with volunteered geographical information (VGI) using machine learning (ML). High-resolution maps of inland surface water bodies are important for water supply and natural disaster mitigation as well as for monitoring, managing, and preserving landscapes and ecosystems.
In a [...]

Urban green spaces (UGSs) can provide important ecosystem services for citizens and their well-being. To make use of these services according to UGS user demands, urban residents, tourists, and city administrations should know where UGSs are located, what qualities they have and how to reach them on convenient routes. A new open access paper at [...]

(English version below)
Die Folgen des Klimawandels sind besonders stark in den höheren Breiten unseres Planeten zu spüren. Die Arktis erwärmt sich derzeit überdurchschnittlich schnell. Dies führt zum Auftauen von Permafrost (dauerhaft gefrorenen Böden) mit ernsthaften Konsequenzen für das arktische Ökosystem. Etwa ein Viertel der Landfläche in der Nördlichen Hemisphäre ist durch Permafrost gekennzeichnet. Darin sind [...]
