The junior research group of 15 people – including 4 post-doctoral and 5 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 (Educational 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 in an augmented reality?

Dr. des. Heike Messemer (Art History, Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg)
As an art historian I am especially interested in images, their application and their effect on the viewer. With this background I want to bring in the art historical perspective into the project.

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 & Leyla Dewitz (Information Science, 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?

Marcus Breitenstein (Educational Technology, TU Dresden)
My research examines the transfer of knowledge through methods of systematic motivation design. It focuses on users and their needs in interaction with media repositories in urban space.

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.
