Research

Main content

Research at the Chair of Geoinformation Engineering focuses on geographic information systems and geospatial technologies in the context of pressing societal challenges, such as increased mobility and location optimization of renewable energy sources.

Specifically, our research centers on the theories, conception, and development of novel methods and technologies to support people’s spatio-temporal decision-making. We thereby utilize knowledge and methods from spatial cognition in order to develop a new generation of (mobile) geospatial information services. A methodological focus lies in the analysis of people’s visual attention in spatial decision situations through mobile eye tracking.
