Open Topics for Theses

My current field of research is mainly a crossover of medical visualization and information visualization. I'm interested in all kinds of project regarding this or similar topics.

If you are interested in writing a thesis in this or a similar topic, feel free to write me an eMail or drop by my office.


Media Station Lionman - Museum of Ulm

In Cooperation with the Museum of Ulm we develop a media station around the topic of the Lion-man, a figurine of an animal-shaped sculture. The ivory sculpture made from mammoth tusk is roughly 40.000 years old and its fragments were diecovered in 1939 in the Hohlenstein-Stadel cave. The media station in form of a touch table will cover the topics around the region of discovery, the Hohlenstein-Stadel cave, and the Lion-man figurine itself.

Visual Navigation for Damage Mapping - Ulm Minster

The continuing building activities at the Ulm Minster are a huge challenge for the residentiary site hut. Damages and appropriate building measures have to be recorded, documented, and mapped. Currently, this happens all manually using pen and paper, whereat in a second step, all the data is digitized.

In this project, a tablet app is developed to support these kind of tasks. The main part of our group in this project is the visualization aided navigation and selection of stones at the Ulm Minster using the alread available construction plans to enrich them with additional information.

Visualization of Point Clounds and Additional Information - Ulm Minster

A multitude of information around the Ulm Minster exists, such as images, text, and recently also point cloud scans. This data is visualized all together in a single, interactive application made for exploration. This project is executed together with the Münsterbauhütte Ulm.
