Joint GeoTech Workshop with Heidelberg Mobil and HeiGIT

Today colleagues from Heidelberg Mobil International GmbH (HDMI) and Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT) met in Mathematikon to discuss current trends and activities in developing and advancing Geoinformation Technologies.
Several presentations were given and fruitful discussions covered a broad range of topics that the two institutions are actively working on.
Topics ranged from automated geodata processing and integration, databases and big spatial data frameworks, location based services for indoor and outdoor, routing and navigation, disaster management and humanitarian VGI, as well as several OpenStreetMap APIs and services. Further current technology for mapping and visualisation in 2D and 3D were explained, as well as examples on Spatial Analytics of crowd generated geodata and even recent deep learning approaches. We are looking forward to more closer cooperation and similar follow up events in the new ‘GeoTech Hub’ at Mathematikon Heidelberg, were both institutions are located.
