The Lab for Geoinformatics and Geovisualization is responsible for coordinating the relevant education within the Bachelor and Master programs in Geomatics at the HafenCity University Hamburg (HCU), and for fostering research and development in this field.
Researchers from geographic information sciences and technologies, geographers, cartographers and programmers are working together in a young diverse team dedicated to topics like modeling and visualization of uncertainties, representing sonic environments, or monitoring using remote sensing data.
GeoViz_Hamburg workshop 2013
After two workshops in 2009 and 2011, the 2013 edition of Geoviz_Hamburg has been a success as well - thanks to all participants!
Our paper on uncertainty visualization can be found in Kartographische Nachrichten
5/2012: "Visualisierung thematischer Unsicherheiten mit Noise Annotation Lines".
New Textbook Available
The new textbook on "Geoinformatik" (in German), written by Jochen Schiewe in co-operation with Manfred Ehlers (University of Osnabrück) is now available.
We aim at exploring possibilities to convey quantitative
information as sound. Hence we develop prototypes to compare
classical forms of presentation such as color and hachure with
KLIWAS: Climate - Water - Navigation
Modeling and visualization of uncertainties in estuary vegetation
monitoring based on multi- and hyperspectral remotely sensed data.
