Profile

The Bachelor's major in Geoinformation and Environment is dedicated to the fundamentals of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and their applications in engineering, ecology, and business. Students gain a comprehensive insight into the geoinformation sciences and learn how they are applied in a variety of practical ways. The program is characterized by interdisciplinarity, internationality, and a strong hands-on approach.

From environmental applications to spatial decision support to risk management, there are wide-ranging applications in geoinformation. In the course of their studies, students also deal with the design and development of GI systems and applications (e.g. WebGIS, geo-apps), analytics, spatial analysis and statistics, as well as data modeling, geodatabases and visualization. All these fields contribute from different perspectives to one thing above all: to a better understanding of our environment.

What Geoinformation & Environment students should bring to the program:

  • A creative personality and enjoyment of innovative developments.
  • Logical thinking skills coupled with an interest in science and technology.
  • Curiosity and the ability to work independently.
  • English skills.

Concrete previous knowledge is not necessary for the Bachelor's program Geoinfomation and Environment. Therefore, students from all types of schools can start this study program after graduating from high school if they have the appropriate interest and willingness to perform. In order to facilitate the start of studies, the FH Kärnten offers intensive courses in mathematics, computer science and physics. Lack of university entrance qualification can be compensated by relevant professional qualification and attendance of the pre-study course.

Upon successful completion of the Geoinformation & Environment degree program, graduates possess the following skills and knowledge:

  • They are versed in the core topics of geoinformation such as digital acquisition, analysis, processing, provision and presentation of geographic phenomena and spatial relationships.
  • They exploit the versatile methods of geoinformation in their completeness.
  • You apply GI technologies and know the essential fields of application of GIS systems and GIS software.

MASTER THESIS IN NEW MEXICO DEVELOPMENT OF A MULTI-TEMPORAL PHENOLOGICAL 3D MODEL OF VINE

As a student of the MSc program „Spatial Information Management“ (SIM), supported by the CUAS’ International Relation Office (IRO) and the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation I had the opportunity to visit the University of New Mexico (UNM) in Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.A. My Marshall Plan grant resulted not only from a successful application but also from the years long cooperation between Dr. Gernot Paulus (SIM@CUAS) and Dr. Christopher D. Lippitt from the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at UNM, both of whom supervised my thesis research.

During my stay, I worked on the quantitative comparison of nadir and oblique images, which is a part of my master thesis on the development of a multi-temporal phenological 3D model of vine. I benefited greatly from Dr. Lippitt’s extensive knowledge and experience, especially regarding remote sensing, while solving supposedly difficult problems related to image processing. Together with other incoming students I received a very warm welcome at the Department. We were introduced to all staff and had a tour of the campus and the city. I enjoyed everybody’s openness, prompt and easy communication. Aside from intense work on my project, I managed to do some sightseeing, mostly following the invitations from my colleagues. For example, I visited the Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument on the Pajarito Plateau, the inactive „Three Sisters“ volcanoes and the national museum of nuclear science & history. Given the high competence and experience of the staff, the friendly and respectful treatment of students, the campus amenities and the discourse and excursion offers, I would warmly recommend this research stay at the UNM in New Mexico to every student! Personally, I am exploring possibilities to return to the UNM to earn a doctoral degree.

Geo is everywhere and in everything

After achieving my BSc in Communication Engineering in Jordan, I came to FH-Kärnten in August 2018 to join the international Master’s program “Spatial Information Management”. Being in this international space paved the way for a great experience. It was a delight to learn, integrate and build relationships with international communities especially in the very nice city of Villach.

I have learnt the key principles of GIS science and I was able to put my gained knowledge to work when I was granted the Marshallplan Scholarship to do my thesis “Comparison of Convolutional Neural Network Architectures for water fowl detection and classification” at the University of New Mexico, USA, from March to July 2020.
In September 2021, I joined SIENA Research Group as a junior researcher and since that time, I have been involved in projects that utilize Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in spatial and environmental applications. For example, I was involved in developing pipelines for automated bird detection from areal imagery, building an extensive dataset for building footprint from satellite images, developing automatic boats tracking system based on image processing, smart-floor analysis and visualization system, automatic insect recognition, and many projects more.

If I have learnt one thing here: it’s the fact that “Geo is everywhere and in everything” and gaining knowledge about how to best utilize such treasure opens the way to endless development and achievement possibilities.

 

It has been such a gratifying experience working on my research in the Physics/Astronomy and Interdisciplinary Science (PAIS) Department at the University of New Mexico (UNM). As Earth and Climate Change was the subject of my thesis, the Geography Department was very helpful to me as well. My host supervisor, Dr. Christopher Lippitt specifically challenges his staff to go beyond their normal comfort levels. During my time there, I have worked closely with Dr. Lippitt, who provided me with the resources and freedom to craft research projects aligned to my interests in answering the big questions like "where is this research going?", and "what else is out there worth a research effort?" I've been consistently pushed and motivated to come up with fresh research concepts.

I think this has given me the ideal environment to develop into a creative, informed, and autonomous researcher. The lab was equipped with everything I needed to conduct the experiments and collect all the empirical data I required for my research. Its atmosphere is friendly, approachable, and the instructors, students, and staff were very helpful and supportive.

Life in Albuquerque is affordable, and locals are always open to newcomers, especially students. Exploring its neighborhoods with locals is a great way to learn about its history and culture but also avoid crime-prone areas. The state of New Mexico offers a wide range of things to do and places to explore and enjoy. If you are an outdoor person, I strongly recommend applying for this position and seeing how magnificent nature there is.

Application of Spatial Exploratory Global Uncertainty-Sensitivity Analysis for Flood Protection Scenarios

My proposal on “Application of Spatial Exploratory Global Uncertainty-Sensitivity Analysis for Flood Protection Scenarios” has been accepted from Marshall Plan Scholarship, so that my journey to Austria began on the 1st of June! I was pretty sure that it would be a rewarding summer in terms of both research and fun, and neither CUAS nor Villach falsified me.

I am currently a geography PhD student in a joint doctoral program between San Diego State University and University of California, Santa Barbara. I have been studying my PhD since 2013 and my major subject area is Geographic Information Science. Specifically, I am a research assistant in a National Research Funded project called “A Spatiotemporal Approach to Sensitivity Analysis in Human Environment Systems Models”. Align with this project; my main research area is uncertainty and sensitivity analysis (U-SA) for spatially explicitly models. Therefore, my proposed study in CUAS is focused on an environmental model, flood damage estimation, considering the importance of the model output and how effective it is in decision making process. Eco-hydrological modeling of flood damage assessment often employs spatially explicit models, which are prone to uncertainty in their input and output data. A modeling approach, which quantifies both uncertainty and sensitivity, is a mandatory step to increase the quality of decision making in spatially explicit models. This research on spatially-explicit models, aims to provide an effective tool for assessment of the quality in output and therefore leading an optimization for the land suitability and resource allocation problems. Considering the environmental conditions in Austria, this makes a suitable candidate region to implement the proposed research methodology.

During my stay in Villach, the technical meetings and discussing that I made with the faculty helped me to form my model and understand the existing conventional methods applied for flood damage estimation. Especially, the help and guidance of Dr. Gernot Paulus has a paramount importance in my research. Moreover, I also had chance to deal with another research subject with Christopher Erlacher which is quite parallel to my PhD subject interest and has very fruitful results. Therefore, these three months period help me to deal two different research problems with the generous support of CUAS faculty.

Besides involving in research, I was also happy to take the advantage of being in the center of Eastern Europe. Especially, being able to travel three countries in a day without having a jetlag was very enjoyable.  I made short trips to Udine, Graz, and Salzburg since I enjoy the history and architecture in a city a lot. Moreover, I visited Ljubljana and Lake Bled in Slovenia for my birthday. Although I was alone, the beauty of the nature and foods cheered me up! In this summer, the most different experience in Villach was Kirchtag for me. It was a traditional festival where people eat special food and dance in their traditional clothes. I had also chance of trying one dress, thanks to my roommate. Finally, I finished my summer time in Budapest and Vienna, which are the best places to farewell the Austria and Europe. 

I am grateful for my unforgettable memories in Austria, especially to the people that I met at FH and my roommates who helped me to survive and ease my life in Villach.  I am pretty sure that those people will turn to lifelong friends. 

Simulation model of the potential trajectories of wolf recolonization of Austria

My three months at FH Kaernten have been both productive and enjoyable. I was able to use this time to create a simulation model of the potential trajectories of wolf recolonization of Austria from the ground up. It was a tremendous learning experience for me and it also yielded some interesting outputs and results. In addition, was able to find time to explore the region, cycling over a thousand km in the nearby countryside and travelling further afield during weekends (with trips to Innsbruck, Vienna, Italy, Slovenia, and the UK). I found the department in general, and Dr. Paulus in particular, to be extremely supportive and helpful in pursuing this new research, and I’m very thankful to the Marshallplan foundation for making it all possible.

Empirical Assessment of an Autonomous Lighter Than Air (ALTA) Imaging/Sensing Platform for Environmental Monitoring

The Autonomous Lighter Than Air (ALTA) platform is a balloon-borne platform to capture aerial imagery for low-altitude aerial photogrammetry. It’s also a low-cost oblique and vertical aerial imagery collection system.

Based on the characteristics of ALTA platform and the need of three dimensional modeling, a method of 3D building or architecture modeling using the aerial images from ALTA platform has been assessed empirically. Firstly, we have captured oblique and vertical images of any building or architecture from the camera of ALTA plat-form through several missions in Villach, Carinthia, Austria. Secondly, several-angle and different altitude images including vertical images and oblique images captured by the ALTA platform were utilized for the detail measure of building dense point cloud, surface and texture extraction in 3D model reconstruction using different photogrammetric solutions.

These reconstructed 3D models are also visualized online taking 3D point clouds of them on potree-based 3D web visualization tool. It is demonstrated from the mission result that ALTA platform for low-altitude aerial photogrammetry can be used in the construction of 3D building production, fine modeling and visualization. The 3D point cloud reconstruction from 2D aerial images of the pilgrimage church of Maria Siebenbrünn is shown in figure 1.

Experience

It was really a great experience to work this kind of pragmatic research work and also great to have support from Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation during the accomplishment of this research work in Austria. My lead project supervisor Dr. Gernot Paulus, Professor, Department of Geoinformation and Environmental Technologies, Carinthia University of Applied Sciences (CUAS), Villach, Austria gave me encouragement to complete this work and participated actively and dynamically during the data acquisition of my work.

My co-lead supervisor of this project Dr. Naphtali David Rishe, Professor, School of Computing and Information Sciences (SCIS), Florida International University (FIU), Miami, FL, USA initiated this collaboration research work and monitored the progress of this work. Daniel SIchler, MSc student from CUAS gave me the support and company during data acquisition. The administrative and technical staff of the Geoinformation and Environmental Technologies department of CUAS provided me any required support during my stay.

Finally, I actually travelled to nearby locations of Villach, Austria for the first time and also I enjoyed the Marshall plan excursion for one day at the end of our stay to Italy and Slovenia. All in all, it was a great experience!

Since May, I have been a guest researcher at CUAS as a recipient of the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation scholarship. The 70-year-old foundation has the mission of fostering collaborative learning between the United States of America and Austria. I believe it is more important now than ever to maintain these scholastic bonds and knowledge bases through a cross-cultural lens, and I am happy to be a part of that endeavor. Under the guidance of Dr. Gernot Paulus, I have worked for the last three months to develop a project that utilizes high-tech drone imagery to model hydrologic phenomena, hopefully with implications in the realm of resilience and human equity. Our semi-regular talks have opened up new ways of thinking and tackling problems.

The learning opportunities at CUAS are numerous, with a colloquium series, an open-format geoinformatics lab, and excursions around Carinthia and greater Austria. The university also funded my attendance at the GI-Forum Conference in Salzburg, where I was able to meet fascinating geographers and learn about the array of research that dominates our robust field. Of course, my time has not been entirely research and school – I have been able to travel (this is my first time to Europe) and experience the rich heritage of Carinthia through the Kirchtag Festival, walking tours, hikes, bike rides, and near-daily visits to one of the many lakes within walking distance. And while Austria provided little respite from the Chihuahuan Desert summer heat in my home state of New Mexico, I have been able to marvel at the stunning beauty of the land here. I will surely cherish this time for years.

My research group at the University of Florida has close ties with the Geoinformation Program at CUAS. Many CUAS students have visited my lab in Fort Lauderdale throughout the last few years to work on interesting projects involving novel data sources such as Twitter or Strava. This year, however, we decided to change the direction of visits and I applied for the Marshall Plan Scholarship to conduct part of my research in Austria. This program supports academic exchange between Austrian and U.S. universities and I am more than happy to have been one of the 2018 awardees and to have spent an enjoyable three months in Villach.

I have a diverse background in geospatial sciences, and lately, my research interest turned towards understanding user behavior in different online communities. My stay at CUAS was organized around the topic of “Identification of activity patterns for individual users across multiple VGI and social media platforms”. In the era of “big data” there are endless potential data sources on the internet that can be put into use and help us answer a number of research questions. You can think of social media services such as Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, Snapchat, or even popular games like Pokémon Go. These services all have a spatial dimension, which makes them particularly exciting from a geospatial point of view. This is a relatively new and exciting research area that involves diving into previously unexplored territories. On the other hand, this is also one of its biggest challenges. I am currently in the last phase of finishing my PhD.

In addition to the challenges originating from my research area, the process of getting a PhD also comes with a lot of stress. One needs to find time to do research, publish papers, present at conferences on top of fulfilling all the requirements that are required for the degree. I found that my visit at CUAS was exactly what I needed to tackle these. Carinthia has a great many things to offer that helped me relax between long hours of work and to start every day refreshed. I enjoyed every bit of my stay. I will never forget my biking trips around Faaker See and Ossiacher See, the random visits of cafés in Velden, or my morning commute to campus along the Drava river. While living in the middle of a major U.S. metropolitan area also has its perks, I believe that productivity levels can benefit from a change in our environment for a short while. The peace and quiet in Villach and the beautiful sight of the Alps certainly increased mine.

All in all, the Marshall Plan Scholarship is an excellent opportunity for students, and I encourage you to apply. Gaining experience in a foreign country, working on interesting projects can boost your future career. You will learn useful skills, make meaningful connections that are all essential for your development. And above all, you will make unforgettable memories.

Not many people think of Austria as a place to study monkeys but that is exactly what we did. Over the summer in collaboration with Carinthia University of Applied Science and San Diego State University with support from the Marshall Plan Foundation, we investigated the ability of drones equipped with thermal sensors to detect monkeys in forested areas.

To begin our research, we started by testing the ability of sensors to detect large primates in an open area (people standing out in a field) and then slowly refined the process until we were able to transfer our process to fly over Abenteuer Affenberg, where we conducted flights over the park with the hope of being able to detect the Japanese macaques living there. One of the concerns we had going into this final phase of testing was that the monkeys would be alarmed by the drone fly overhead, which would appear similar to one of their main predators. Luckily, the monkeys appeared to not be concerned at all with the drone buzzing overhead. Hence, we were able to conduct our flights without worry that we were causing the monkeys distress and were able to collect some interesting data for analysis. While the processing of the data is still ongoing, the preliminary results are positive and will hopefully lead to a more streamlined process to gather population data of primates.

We expect our approach to be beneficial to both the researchers and the wildlife as it is less invasive for the animals and more cost and time effective for the researchers. Once the data collected has been fully explored and we have determined the applicability of the process, the next hopeful progression of this research is to transfer what we learned in to the forests in the Fanjingshan National Nature Reserve in China to help conservationists monitor and protect the endangered Golden snub-nosed monkey. We would like to thank the CEO of „Abenteuer Affenberg“, Svenja Gaubatz and the scientific director Dr. Lena Pflüger for their great support.

Villach

The Villach region combines tradition, cosmopolitanism and quality of life with the advantages of an innovative business location. Villach, a small town with about 60,000 inhabitants, is an international high-tech location with groundbreaking cooperation between science and industry and is also increasingly developing into a start-up town.

Situated directly at the intersection of three cultures, Villach, situated on the Drava river, is an important traffic junction in the Alps-Adriatic region. This special geographical location and the beautiful landscape around Villach and in the federal state of Carinthia have made the region a popular holiday destination for generations, further beyond the borders. The drinking water quality of the lakes and the particularly clean air make Villach and its surroundings an environmental paradise.

In addition to its geographical advantages, Austria also leads the world in terms of its social and health care system and is considered a particularly safe, prosperous and liveable country.

Despite the above-average prosperity and the comprehensive state social benefits, Villach compares favourably with many international destinations. The "small town bonus" comes into its own here and makes everyday life affordable.
