• Aerospace Bachelor starts

    The new semester sees the arrival of the very first students at the TU Munich to study our newly established Bachelor Aerospace. We participate in this study program with the two computer science lectures (“Computational Foundations I”, “Computational Foundations II”) and teach the basics of algorithms, programming, and technical programming, and computer engineering, so that our students can develop mission critical software. In times of digitalization, there is probably no subject in which the long-term theoretical foundation (computer science as the foundation of all data science) is as important as actual practical skills (software as a universal tool). Accordingly, we adopt the didactic approach 4CID, which emphasizes learning through practical tasks in in a procedural way (step by step: increasing complexity with decreasing assistance) and thematic embedding (application examples). (examples of application) is in the spotlight.

    We are looking forward to this new lecture series, which will be in parts also be used in the next semester in the course of geodesy and geoinformatics.

  • MINT Entdeckerinnen 2021

    This year, we again participated in the MINTEntdeckerinnen program of the TU Munich. Six young women between the ages of 15 and 18 were our guests during the school vacations to gain experience in our field.

    This year, we selected “autonomous aerial drones” as the topic and learned and tried out all the necessary elements needed to simulate autonomous drones and develop the necessary software.

    We learned about MATLAB and SimuLink, got to grips with the Unity game engine, implemented a simulation of drone flight dynamics in MATLAB and connected it to the game engine. In the end we were able towe were able to plan trajectories, fly off, and solve a safe-and-rescue scenario.

    One or two drones crashed in the simulation or flew through houses, but in the end all six students solved the problem independently and practically.

  • Gastvorlesung - Space Data Strategy: How to Gain Business Value from Geospatial Data

    We are happy to announce the following guest lecture:

    Friday, July 31st,2020 13:00 – 15:00 CET.

    In order to attend, you need to register for this lecture.

    Companies are drowning in data, but are thirsty for information. Although e.g. ESA’s Copernicus Open Data Strategy has exploded the availability & quality of geospatial data, only a small number of companies are using it. Because most companies only see their own data instead of seeing the opportunities and looking for new data. A data strategy is the business plan for data & analytics and data thinking is the method to develop this business plan. In this lecture you will get to know some useful tools to design data products yourself.


    Martin Szugat is the founder and managing director of Datentreiber, a data strategy consulting firm. For his projects e.g. for Roche, ProSiebenSat1 and many more, he applies design thinking to data science and has developed a method and open source tools for data strategy design. Besides he is the program director of the Predictive Analytics & Deep Learning World conferences in Europe. He studied bioinformatics at LMU & TUM. When he has free time, he devotes himself to AI and Space Data and tweets about it on The presentation is mandatory for students of the lecture Big Geospatial Data and open for all interested guests.

  • MINT-Erlebnis - Program Available

    We are proud and happy to be part of this years program MINT-Erlebnis.

    The professorship for Big Geospatial Data Management provides a project in which schoolgirls build a sandbox with augmented reality functions.

    Further information is available from the program’s page: <>

    We whish you a lot of fun with this program.

  • Interview with student council

    The student council of LRG has asked me a few questions about my work and beyond. You can find it (in German language) in the first issue of the journal of the student council called Navigator:

  • Prof. Martin Werner starts at TUM

    Today, I am starting my professorship for big geospatial data management. In these days, a virus is affecting all of us and in this situation it is unfortunately not possible to do a large party. But we will have this party as soon as we can meet in my Big Geoespatial Data Management lab.

    For now, we concentrate on excellent teaching and research in times of home-office and online courses. .
