This field of research focuses on two themes. The first theme is a physically and statistically oriented theme "spatial analysis". The other theme concerns the visualization of geo-information.
Spatial analysis includes deterministic and statistical spatio-temporal modelling, machine- and deep learning, research into uncertainties associated with spatio-temporal data, geostatistics and fitness for use for a diversity of applications ranging from precision agriculture to nuclear emergency support.
Visualization of geo-information includes developing and evaluating readable and understandable graphical expressions of geo-data acquisition and modelling results which may support dissemination of scientific outcomes. The topic is strongly linked to the other four themes.
