The goal of the Geoinformatics Lab is to develop innovative computational methods for modeling, analysing and simulating human geo-spatial behavior. The focus is on

  • processes using spatial cognition such as geographic space appropriation, perception and wayfinding
  • dynamic complex systems such as multi-modal transportation networks

Such human-environment interactions may best be understood using a bottom-up perspective, ie. through implementing generative models while at the same time corroborating the usefulness of the models by analysing using a top-down perspective. We are currently exploring several methodologies, i.e., we work with agent-based modelling, geosimulation, classical spatio-temporal analysis, GIS models and extensions as well as GeoAI-methods.

3D Modell eines Teils des römischen Augsburgs

Marcel Schmidt hat seine Bachelorarbeit zu einem Modell des nördlichen Tors, dessen Umgebung und des Gräberfelds des römischen Augsburg abgeschlossen. Das Modell, für das er die ArcGIS CityEngine verwendet hat, kann über einen Browser erkundet werden. Der Link dahin ist

Symposium "On the Modelling of Landmarks" accepted at ICSC 2021

The symposium „On the Modelling of Landmarks“ at the International Conference on Spatial Cognition in Rome proposed by Dr. Nuhn has been accepted. Four presentations will provide the backbone of the symposium. Additional papers / presentations will be added to the symposium after a rigorous reviewing process. We look forward to going a step further with the challenge of modelling landmarks.

Paper in Spatial Cognition XII

Eva Nuhn und Sabine Timpf haben einen Artikel zur Modellierung von (personalisierten) Landmarken im Konferenzband Spatial Cognition XII veröffentlicht.


Das vollständige Paper ist hier verfügbar.

Discoveries aren't made by one person exploring by themselves. And discoveries aren't made overnight. People don't see the thousands of hours that go into it.
