The junior research group of 14 people – including 4 post-doctoral and 4 PhD researchers – are working until July 2020 on how digital image archives and media repositories can be used for urban historical research and on how to communicate the results of this research.
Dr. Sander Münster (Education Technology, TU Dresden)
My goal: To sketch the research landscape of image-oriented digital humanities and use this in teaching and research.
Dr. Florian Niebling (Computer Science, Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg)
How are objects from media repositories integrated spatially into the environment to enrich or modify reality? How can we interact with this data?
Dr. Kristina Friedrichs (Architectural History, Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg)
My question: How does the cityscape and its image in photographs change as culture shifts? How do photographers, in turn, influence the evolution of the ideal and material cityscape?
Dr. Frank Henze & Ferdinand Maiwald (Geodetics and Photogrammetry, TU Dresden)
Our vision: To develop automated workflows for georeferencing and dating large image collections and use photogrammetry to create an historical 3D city model.
Cindy Kröber (Information Sciences, TU Dresden)
How do researchers use photo archives and how can we support research, the contextualization and evaluation of media objects, including user-generated and user-assessed content?
Kristina Barthel (Education Sciences, TU Dresden)
My research project will explore possibilities for innovative approaches to interaction with media repositories in the urban space and what these mean for user guidance and knowledge transfer.
Jonas Bruschke (Media Informatics, Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg)
My research is about exploring and developing approaches to interactive information linking, presentation and research support, using desktop and tablet-based 4D browser interfaces.
