DFG-Research Group 1546 (3DTracks): Computer-aided cooperative planning in multi-scale 3D city and building models

The DFG research group "Computer-aided cooperative planning in multi-scale 3D city and building models" aims at researching and developing methods and techniques for cooperative planning of infrastructure. The project involves five groups at the Technical University of Munich and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

The sub-project "advanced geo-web services for the requirements of multi-scale 3D-route planning" belongs to the Chair of Geoinformatics.
