DFG establishes 12 new research units
Date:10/21/2011

t will seek to develop an interdisciplinary approach to processing data from compatible reference systems and to attain a previously unseen degree of accuracy. (Spokesperson: Dr.-Ing. Axel Nothnagel, University of Bonn)

The Research Unit "Mapping on Demand" plans to develop and trial processes that will facilitate rapid three dimensional identification and mapping of inaccessible objects. A lightweight drone capable of autonomous flight will serve as the main instrument and sensory platform in the Unit's studies. The drone will use visual information captured by cameras to navigate, avoid obstacles, explore, and map objects. Researchers from the fields of geodetics, photogrammetry, geo-informatics, and computer science will develop the necessary models and processes as well as trialling prototypes in outlying suburban areas, where they will map building structures, vegetation, and stationary traffic. (Spokesperson: Prof. Wolfgang Frstner, University of Bonn)

The extent to which local situations shape the role of available knowledge in political decision-making processes is the subject of a new Research Unit which will bring together researchers from the social and engineering sciences. The researchers will seek to unravel how patterns of knowledge relevant to decision-making processes are generated. Empirical studies conducted by the Unit will focus on Frankfurt, Munich and Stuttgart, and the strategies implemented to address global climate change in the areas of local transportation planning and development, land development and improving energy efficiency in private buildings. (Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Hubert Heinelt, TU Darmstadt)

The "INUIT Ice Nuclei Research UnIT" will seek to explain how ice forms in the atmosphere. Mixed-phase clouds contain both supercooled liquid particles and ice crystals, with the latter influencing both the atmospheric radiation budget and the development of precipitation. While researchers are aware that so-
