Relaunch Umweltatlas Berlin

2019 - 2021 Senate Department for Urban Development and Housing

The Berlin Environmental Atlas offers not only a central access point, but also a very comprehensive collection of environmental information. It contains a wide variety of topics (e.g. on climate change, soil communities, flora and fauna), from different years, in different presentation formats (text, map, graphic, table, audio, video).

This project aims to improve the existing online presence of the Environmental Atlas Berlin by relaunching its structure, clarity and navigation behaviour. Another aim is to improve navigation to the Geoportal Berlin and when switching between text and map information. At the same time, the data migration to the content management system Imperia is performed.

DELPHI IMM is entrusted with the implementation of the project, from the design and user guidance to the technical realisation and quality control. The design has to take into account the style guide specifications of as well as the technical implementation has to take the possibilities of the CMS Imperia into account.


2019 - 2020 District of Bamberg

The transnational LEADER cooperation project with 18 monastery landscapes in six European countries started in 2019. The district of Bamberg, as the responsible body and transnational coordinator, would like to apply for the "European Heritage Label" (EKS) for Cistercian monastic landscapes in association with the project partners.

Within the project, DELPHI IMM is entrusted with the development of a data collecting portal for Cistercian landscapes. The following functionalities will be considered: Adoption of the basic concept of the application, multilingualism, revision of the database, roles / rights system, responsiveness, inclusion of geometries, import / export interface, layout customisation. In addition to development, DELPHI's tasks include training, hosting and support.

 2017 - 2020 Research project BMBF

Central Asia is one of the most tectonically active regions in the world and is influenced by two major climate systems: the West Wind Zone and the Monsoon. CaTeNA (Climatic and Tectonic Natural Hazards in Central Asia) investigates the two major natural hazards resulting from these conditions: Earthquakes and mass movements. The aim is to better understand the underlying processes and triggering factors and to better assess the resulting risks.

DELPHI's task in the Catena project is to prepare and provide the results of the data. For this purpose, an existing web geo-CMS is being adapted. The challenge lies in the automation of geological, metereological and satellite image data and in the dynamic visualisation of changes over time.


2017 - 2020 Julius-Kühn Institute

The joint project EMRA (Extreme Weather Monitoring and Risk Assessment System for the Provision of Decision Support in Extreme Weather Management in Agriculture) aims to record and assess current and expected risks of extreme weather events more systematically. Farms can participate in monitoring via an online platform and an application for mobile devices. DELPHI IMM's task is to develop the web portal with a map for area selection, to visualize weather data in extensive diagrams and to develop a communication tool.

2019 - 2020 Institute of Geography, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg

As part of the Retreat project, DELPHI IMM is responsible for setting up a glacier portal for the interactive visualisation of glacier movements. Glacier movements are derived from Sentinel-1 satellite data and other glacier-related geodata, such as monthly and annual mosaics. The glacier portal enables the functionalities of searching, analysing and visualising glacier data. Prerequisites of the implementation are OGC conformity, open source software and WMS support.

Landsamt für Umwelt Brandenburg

2018 Fernerkundung

On behalf of the LfU Brandenburg, DELPHI IMM demonstrates the possibilities of using COPERNICUS data in the thematic field of water. The potentials of the evaluation of Sentinel-1 data (SAR) are analysed in four thematic areas:

  1. Monitoring of river ice for early detection of ice jams
  2. Detection of flooded areas after heavy rain events
  3. Detection of river floods and calculation of the polder fill level
  4. Determination of water quality by calculating the chlorophyll a concentration


Geologische Wand in Berlin

2018 Grün Berlin GmbH

In the Volkspark Pankow-Blankenfelde is the Geological Wall, a compilation of 123 rocks from all parts of Germany completed in 1896 by Eduard Zache, a teacher and geologist, which reflect a geological section through the history of the earth in Central Europe over a length of 30m.

DELPHI IMM was commissioned by Grün Berlin GmbH to create a web application that enables interested members of the public to obtain information on each rock found in the wall without necessarily having to be on site. For examples, rock age, origin or (former) use can be gained.

Energiedatenbank Brandenburg

2016-2019 Wirtschaftsförderung Brandenburg (WFBB)

The WFBB is the sponsor of the Energy Saving Agency of the State of Brandenburg. The WFBB needs a database solution for monitoring its energy strategy in order to enable comparability of the different municipal energy data, among other things. DELPHI IMM implemented an energy database for this purpose, which enables an  import of current energy data as well as an automated calculation for each municipality and data export. At the push of a button, energy reports can be created for provision to the municipalities. TYPO3 and MySQL are used as software components.

Energieatlas Rheinland-Pfalz

2015 - 2019 Energieagentur Rheinland-Pfalz

With the implementation of the Energy Atlas of Rhineland-Palatinate, a modern and dynamic web portal is available for information on the energy transition. The portal offers lots of information on renewable energies with regard to electricity and heat, from generation and feed-in to consumption. Outstanding municipal or private projects as well as the most important energy key data are vividly documented in dynamically generated profiles. The FH Potsdam, Department of Design conceived the design and usability.

Geoportal Brandenburg

2010 - 2019  Landesvermessung und Geobasisinformation Brandenburg (LGB)

The LGB is the central geoservice provider for geoinformation in the state of Brandenburg. Its tasks also include the development of the Brandenburg spatial data infrastructure. For this central role, DELPHI IMM developed or adapted various components for the LGB. These include the metadata editor Promis-Online and the Brandenburg geoportal for searching metadata and displaying services.

Digitaler Entscheidertisch

2015 - 2017 Forschungsprojekt DLR

DIGENTI was carried out as part of DLR's INNOspace as a cooperation project with FH Potsdam, the University of Potsdam, Infoterra GmbH and Airbus Defence & Space. It involves the development of a new type of digital decision-making table for the management of natural hazards. The interactive "multi-touch tabletop" is used to simulate possible natural disasters such as landslides or floods on the basis of radar data from Terra SAR-X and TanDEM-X satellites and combined with other spatial information and social media data.

Spatial Data Network Hanoi

2015 - 2017 Research Project GIZ

With the research project "Spatial Data Network Hanoi - Vietnam", DELPHI IMM supports the authorities in Vietnam by implementing a spatial data infrastructure in order to exchange of geoinformation. The software components, such as the data search, the display of the results list and the visualisation of the geoinformation in a map application, are adapted to Vietnamese requirements. The presentation of the geoinformation is based on standardised geoservices, such as WebMappingService (WMS) and WebFeatureService (WFS).

cooperation platform geobee

2012-2015 research project BLE

geobee, as a cooperation platform, brings for the first time different stakeholders in bee protection in an agricultural landscape together: beekeeper, farmer and conservationists. geobee consists of a web-based application which provides geoinformation e.g. about distribution of bee colonies, plants, position of the American Foulbrood areas as dynamic maps. Farmers are enabled to report to beekeepers about upcoming actions in the agriculture with this system. The Julius Kühn-Institut was responsible for farming aspects and concepts.
