Cartography – Generalization and 3D Visualization

  • PUSH -- Automatic Cartographic Displacement Based on Optimization
    The software program PUSH allows the automatic displacement of geo-objects of all types, i.e. points, lines and polygons. The object characteristics which influence the displacement behaviour can be parametrized in a very flexible way: either object specific or object-class specific. The results allow for an automatic quality control. The program is able to generalize also large data sets.

  • Controlling pedestrian motion using Augmented Reality
    Controlling pedestrian motion pattern using augmented reality requires explainable visualizations to convince the user to change directions and speed of motion. Such AR visualizations should avoid cognitive overload and should provide motion guidance that are accurate representations of expected user actions to avoid conflicts / collisions.

  • Visual communication to control route choice behavior
    The individual choice of transport modality and route depends on a number of factors. In particular, information about the expected traffic situation is considered important. It should therefore be examined whether the mediation of the current and the anticipated situation on site (including the indication of certain securities) leads to the choice of a different route or even a different modality.
