Research summary

Jan Boehm's research focuses on photogrammetry, image understanding and robotics. With his background in Computer Science he wants to bridge the remaining gap between photogrammetry and computer vision. The latter provides key components to increased productivity in the geomatic processing pipeline. In past projects he already successfully leveraged the productivity in terrestrial laser scanning by introducing automation to georeferencing by direct georeferencing, automated registration using intensity features and automated modelling strategies.
