Keynote at DLR.Open OpenGeoData Open Data Science Workshop

Today Prof. Alexander Zipf is giving an invited keynote speech at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen, the national aeronautics and space research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany.
The DLR organises a two day workshop called “DLR.Open II – Open Data Science und Open Geodata“. This is the second workshop on Open Data and Open Science held at the DLR. This emphasises the growing importance of open geodata and open data science. Prof. Zipf will highlight examples of research on the quality, integration and machine learning based enrichment of open geodata, as well as examples on innovative applications based on these from different domains like disaster response and humanitarian aid, landuse, navigation as well as health and planning. The focus will be on user generated geodata such as OpenStreetMap and related data sources, based on the work and research projects at the GIScience Research Group Heidelberg and the Heidelberg Institute for Geoinformation Technology (HeiGIT), including analytics of crowdsourcing applications like MapSwipe, the OSM history analytics platform and of course latest news from OpenRouteService.
