The Geospatial Visualization, Semantic Modelling, and Acquisition Groupat the VRVis Forschungs-GmbH in Vienna, Austria, tackles challenges related to the visualization and analysis of, and interaction with 3D geospatial data in a friendly and inspiring atmosphere. The ultimate goal is to build interactive systems integrating all relevant spatial and non-spatial information to support experts in planning, analyzing, and making informed decisions.
Currently, we are looking for support from a student (f/m/d) who would like to experience application-oriented research at Austria's leading research center in the field of visual computing and/or aims to give her/his master's thesis an application-driven focus with the following topic:
Integrating Simulation Results into Point Cloud Data
Efficient, reliable railways play an important role in reducing carbon emissions and reaching climate goals. Large-scale simulations help schedule efficient maintenance measures and prolong the life of railway infrastructure.
The aim of this project is to visualize the results of such simulations in 3D point clouds. You will develop interactive visualizations within a dashboard combining point clouds, map data, and charts. We collaborate closely with industry partners who want to explore questions like the deterioration of track geometry over time in different simulation scenarios.
What your tasks will be
Reading simulation results and segmentation data (track segmentation data is already available from another project)
Registering point cloud positions with simulation points
Visualizing simulation results (e.g., color coding, glyphs) in 3D
What you will bring to the team
Interest in visualization and user interaction
Solid programming skills
We use the Aardvark Platform and F# , so experience with functional programming is recommended but not necessary
What we offer in return
Very friendly and supportive work atmosphere
Flexibility and well-equipped work-space
Excellent professional support by our team
Opportunity to access our network of university partners (e.g., for thesis supervision)
Appropriate remuneration upon successful (thesis) completion
Applications are always welcome!
Please contact Rebecca Nowak to send in your application or to inquire about additional information.
We especially would like to encourage female students to apply!
