Teaching assignment for the introduction and application of GISCAME



Frank Pietzsch is manager of PiSolution GmbH. He has over 25 years experiences in software and technology development. His areas of activity are the development of innovative technological concepts, consulting and conception in the area of process optimization. He has experiences in national and international research projects (e.g. on multi-dimensional data, big data handling, guided research, search data bases).

The software GISCAME was developed together with PiSolution. GISCAME supports the simulation, visualization and assessment of land use changes. GISCAME pursues the aim to evaluate land use based on available regional knowledge (empirical data,  model results/reports, and expert knowledge) in order to provide a tool  to weigh action alternatives for the planner. GISCAME considers the  landscape as an integrative layer for interactions between different  land use types, land users, and ecosystem processes, which contribute to  the provision of ecosystem services. The integrated evaluation and  regulation system allows the formulation of parameters as well as the  setting of conversion rules.
