TUM/LfK offers a very high level of education and research in the field of cartography. Currently the research group on Geovisualization and Geostatistics of TUM/LfK is focusing on the extension of computational methods to cluster spatial data geovisualization and density visualization of points. Our overall mission is the
„Development of geo-data analysis methods — from data enrichment to advanced visualization and communication“
The current group is investigating dynamic geographic phenomena within a framework of (attention-guiding) geovisualization. Ongoing projects include topics such as Visual Analytics of Multi-Dimensionally Geocoded Point Datasets and Event detection from VGI. Further research focuses on Location Based Services and Routing as well as on data integration. New knowledge and ideas acquired from the ongoing research work is directly introduced into the teaching modules and students get a firsthand insight into ongoing research.
