20 years of KTS – a cornerstone for Geoinformatics in Heidelberg

The Klaus Tschira Foundation (KTS) Heidelberg can look back to 20 successful years of history since its foundation in 1995 (www.20jahrekts.de). The foundation of the European Media Laboratory (EML) in 1997 also had a great impact on Geoinformatics in Heidelberg, with Alexander Zipf being the first PhD student there in the first EML research project “Deep Map”. Later this led also to the foundation of the spin-off company Heidelberg Mobil International.
