Austrian Competences in Aeronautics Technology

University of Salzburg - Department of Geoinformatics, Z_GIS

Z_GIS seeks insights into highly dynamic and complex domains in a changing world. The spatial view experts provide spatial methodologies and technologies to the natural and social sciences and engineering disciplines as well as increasingly to the digital humanities. Z_GIS scientists conduct innovative research and development in national and international projects (H2020, FFG, FWF etc.).

Technologies and competences

Current research focuses on establishing spatial monitoring and decision systems for human security, societal stability and environmental integrity. To achieve this, techniques such as automated image analysis and regionalisation, multi-scale representation and dynamic visualisation, spatial analysis, change detection and modelling, data integration and interoperable use are applied.
