Prize for best PhD for Rene Westerholt “Förderpreis Runder Tisch GIS München”

Recently our former team member Rene Westerholt (now at Warwick UK) received this years prize for the best PhD at “Förderpreis Runder Tisch GIS München 2019“. The PhD was done in Heidelberg within the graduate school “CrowdAnalyser – Spatio-temporal Analysis of User-generated Content”.  We concratulate cordially!

The following papers are part of the cummulative PhD thesis in addition to an extensive introduction with synopsis and discussion:
