    Impressions from Silvilaser 2023

    Last week, our PhD student, Hannah Weiser, joined Silvilaser 2023 at University College London (UCL). The conference covers cutting-edge science and technology from the laser scanning and forest communities, which is a perfect match for Hannah’s PhD topic and 3DGeo research in general. The week started off with interesting workshops on Tuesday using some of…

  • Mosquito App Alert

    Prof. Dr. Alexander Zipf and Charlie Hatfield from HeiGIT contribute with their expertise on participatory science to an interdisciplinary case study by IDAlert on the monitoring of invasive mosquito populations in Heidelberg and the Rhine-Neckar-Region. One part of the case study is the Mosquito Alert App that recently has been launched in Germany and draws…

  • Uncovering the dynamics of the inland dunes in Sandhausen using UAV-borne 3D data acquisition

    For the first time, the inland dunes in Sandhausen (Baden-W├╝rttemberg, Germany) have been captured by UAV-borne photogrammetry and laser scanning. The dunes are a precious habitat for many specialized plants and animals. They formed during the last ice age by sand drift from the Rhine valley. The large inland dunes, originally stretching from Karlsruhe to…
