    Chair of Computer Science I - Algorithms and Complexity

    Disputation of Benedikt Budig


    On April 5th, Benedikt Budig has defended his doctoral thesis entitled "Extracting Spatial Information from Historical Maps: Algorithms and Interaction" in a public disputation.

    As part of his thesis, Benedikt developed algorithms to extract spatial information from historical maps. By embedding user interaction, the generated data is very precise. Applications can be found in the digital humanities, where historical maps are to a large extent still processed by hand.

    Congratulations to the last, successful step towards the PhD!
