Section 1.5: Geoinformatics

Topics

We promote data analysis of big or complex data in the geosciences by developing novel data science concepts in the fields of interactive visualization and data mining. Our methods and tools have a particular focus on the following objectives:

Exploration of multi-dimensional data

Geoscientists need to understand the behavior of Earth system processes based on multi-dimensional data. Our solutions enable scientists to explore spatio-temporal data to detect relevant information from multi-dimensional data.

Current Research:

Find Relations among heterogeneous data

Geoscientists make use of data from sensors, geoarchives (such as core samples), and simulations to study the system Earth. The data describe Earth processes on various scales in space and time and by many different variables. Our methods facilitate the comparison of data from different sources and the integrated analysis of the heterogeneous data.

Current Projects:

Extract relevant information from big data

Current simulation models as well as observation systems generate large quantities of data. Our methods extract the important information from these data and present it in a compact and efficient manner to scientists.
