  • Kick-off field campaign for AHK-4D project

    From 22 – 25 June, the first field visit within the project AHK-4D – High-resolution and high-frequency monitoring of the rock glacier Äußeres Hochebenkar (AHK) in Austria took place in the Austrian Alps. The aim of this project is to develop a methodology to quantify the magnitudes and frequencies of individual surface change processes of […]

  • Open access publication of terrestrial laser scanning and terrestrial and UAV images of Alpine Regions in Austria

    Very interesting terrestrial laser scanning and terrestrial and UAV image datasets of different Alpine sites in Austria have just been openly provided on PANGAEA. The data are related to the first (2015) and second (2017) edition of the Innsbruck Summer School of Alpine Research – Close Range Sensing Techniques in Alpine Terrain and can, for […]

  • Live from the Ötztal Alps (#5): Exploring high-mountain 3D GIScience

    On our last day in the Ötztal Alps, we had an exciting excursion from Obergurgl to Ramolhaus on 3006 m a.s.l. On our way up we could directly explore glacial history by passing the historical extents and related moraines of the retreating Gurgler glacier. The students also learned about geoarcheology and settlement history in the […]

  • Continued capturing of an active rock glacier in 3D

    For the fourth consecutive year, the 3DGeo team acquired the rock glacier Äußeres Hochebenkar in the Austrian Ötztal by terrestrial laser scanning. This adds another point cloud to the multitemporal dataset to observe how the active rock glacier changes over the years. In an elevation over 2600 m a.s.l., the complex terrain on and around […]

  • 3D data acquisition in the Ötztal Alps – Exploring 3D GIScience on the “Monster of Rock”

    As part of the practical field training “3D Geodatenerfassung im Hochgebirge (Ötztal), 31 July – 06 August”, the rock glacier “Äußeres Hochebenenkar” (42 ha), located in the Ötztal Alps in an elevation of 2,630-2,800 m a.s.l., was explored  by 16 students under the direction of Bernhard Höfle, Stefan Hecht and Martin Hämmerle. With the help […]

  • ISPRS Innsbruck PhD Summer School of Alpine Research 2015

    The first summer school of its kind on Close Range Sensing Techniques in Alpine Terrain took place in Obergurgl, Ötztal Valley, Austria, from July 5 – 11 2015. The event was co-hosted by the ISPRS, the main organizer University of Innsbruck and several other European universities including the GIScience Group of Heidelberg University. More than […]
