Open data play an increasing role in various societal fields, administration, economy, science and others. This concerns also open, spatial data which can be used in space-related decision-making. Open spatial data will be introduced as an important source of information. However, open spatial data must meet specific qualitative requirements. Pros...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Die Thematik der Veränderung des Klimas und den sich daraus ergebenden Handlungsoptionen ist in der Breite der Gesellschaft angekommen. Die beobachteten Tendenzen und die modellbasierten Projektionen zum Klimawandel zeigen einen deutlichen mittel- bis langfristigen Handlungsbedarf in zahlreichen gesellschaftlichen Bereichen. Dabei stehen die Auswir...
Chapter
Reacting to climate change on the regional level requires strategies that take into account various actors. Administrations as driving forces, but also NGOs, enterprises, and citizens should collaborate to achieve sustainable decisions. Universities can moderate between the different actors due to their independent and science-driven perspective. I...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Spatial decision making often requires the consideration of huge datasets from a great variety of sectors. For the achievement of decision that are accepted by as many actors as possible it is indispensable to consider all relevant fields, and contexts. However, if the goal of a project is ill defined or broadly scoped, it can be hard to identify a...
Chapter
Full-text available
Climate change and a rising number of extreme weather events increase the demand for regional climate adaptation concepts. Consequently, the need for supporting the development of such concepts, for example through the usage of digital climate services, is growing. In particular, the adequate use of geospatial data and Web services could accompany...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Within the framework of the research project “BebeR”, a cross-sector approach has been chosen to decide on measures aiming at adapting to climate on a local level, aimed at mitigating soil erosion. Cross-sector means to consider possibly all relevant actors that play a role during the development of measures to adapt to climate change. Such a colla...

Article
Full-text available
Increasingly, the consequences of climate change are recognized not only on a national, but also on the regional and local level. More and more local administrations ask if and which measures should be implemented to be prepared concerning climate change induced hazards, such as flooding, soil erosion, or drought and heat periods in rural and/or ur...

The artcile (German language) describes briefly the cooperation between Harz University of Applied Sciences and the Fraunhofer IFF research insitute in Magdeburg which exists since 25 years now.
Chapter
An important characteristic of transdisciplinary research is the integration of real-life, practical problems and scientific knowledge. In many cases problems related to climate change concern primarily scientists who analyze vast amounts of data aiming at forecasting potential effects of climate change. However, if climate change adaptation measur...
Conference Paper
A typical characteristic of spatial problem-solving is the multi-disciplinarity, i.e. different actors from various sectors have to be involved in decision making processes. To satisfy as many actors as possible it is necessary, to consider all relevant fields, and contexts. This can be a problem due to the complexity of a project, especially if th...
Conference Paper
Preceded by a ‘personal word’ from the authors, the focus of this paper is on a number of facts and activities that together describe how AGILE developed from an idea in the garden of the late Peter Burrough in Wageningen in July 1997 to a mature and well known organization nowadays. After a short description of those very first years where the rea...

Article
Geoapplications are envisaged to support employees in economy and administration while solving spatial problems. Within this framework, the idea of using a holistic approach during the analysis and the solution of the problem is not new, but still not often used. Such a view requires the consideration of different contexts in which the spatial prob...
Article
GeoGovernment als Teil des eGovernment ist heute ohne den Einsatz von Geoinformationssystemen und -diensten nicht denkbar. Raumbezogene Entscheidungsfindungen erfordern zunehmend eine Einbeziehung aller Akteure aus diversen Sektoren (oder Kontexten), um möglichst eine viele Interessen berücksichtigende Lösung zu erreichen. Es stellt sich die Frage,...

Full-text available
The project KLIMPASS was aimed at the development of an adaptation strategy to climate change based on a regional, and local level. The basis of such a strategy is formed by the existing climate change scenarios. The overall goal is to move from a high level of abstraction to context specific conditions, involving local stakeholders and concrete ac...
Conference Paper
In the preamble of the final report of the UN-Climate Conference in Cancún in December 2010, 193 countries recognised that global warming needs to be limited to less than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels to avoid dangerous climate change. This translates, on one hand, to an increased need for mitigation, but on the other hand also requ...

Conference Paper
Within the framework of a research project aiming at developing GI-tools to support the individualization of travel planning in a comprehensive way, it was decided to replace an existing POI-database by an POI ontology due to the more flexible and semantically richer ‘behavior’ of an ontology instead of a database. Within the paper the background o...

Chapter
Accuracy and relevance are properties that are often mentioned in context with usability and quality of data. The use of GIS and mobile GI services in spatial planning and management requires accurate and relevant data. For usage of spatial data in time critical situations, e. g. disaster management, this is especially true. Decisions must be made...

Field work is needed in many scientific disciplines as well as practice, e.g., surveying or environmental monitoring. Despite the goal of making the data collection process more effective, mobile geocomputing tools are a means to control data quality during data collection. Such tools must consider the conceptual data models of real world features...

Technical interoperability has provided geographic information communities with substantial improvements for constructing GIS capable of very low friction and dynamic data exchanges. These technical advances stand to provide substantial advantages for sharing geographic information, however reaping these advantages in highly heterogeneous operation...
Conference Paper
Semantic interoperability in GIS is the ability to share geospatial information at the application level. This paper argues that we currently have a relatively clear understanding of what semantic heterogeneity means, what are real world cases that exemplify this heterogeneity, and who to characterize these differences. We believe that the stage is...
