Megabiome changes over the last 120kyr (HadCM3) SFB806 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

This geospatial dataset contains climate data from 120 ka to 0 ka in 1000 to 4000 year steps as raster data. The variable shows biomes representing nine different climate conditions modeled with the HadCM3 - general circulation model. The source data from Hoogakker et al. (2016) was imported from the original published NetCDF file and translated to multiple GEOTIFFs with GDAL. The raster data has been converted to single GeoTIFFs with GDAL’s gdal translate and gdalwarp tool. The dataset has a resolution of...

Climate Data 30-13 ka GIS Dataset SFB806 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

This raster data is part of a geospatial dataset that contains climate data from 30 ka to 13 ka in 1000 year steps, provided by Tallavaara et al. (2015). The variables are PET (Potential Evapotranspiration) and WAB (Water balance) in mm/year and MCM (Mean temperature of the coldest month) in C°. The source was supplied in a .xls file containing longitude/latitude coordinates with the related variable values. It was imported to a shapefile with QGIS' "Create a Layer from a Delimited Text...

A QGIS plugin to interface openModeller SFB806 doi

This is a plugin for QGIS to interface the openModeller software package. OpenModeller is a software framework for species’ potential distribution modelling. The package includes (among other program files) the om_console.exe executable which is used for the modelling process. The program file is controlled by a configuration file and needs several files as input data. The configuration file contains the paths to the input data, configuration parameters for the output data and the selected modelling...

LGM sealevel change (HiRes) Spatial PaleoMaps

Based on the GEBCO 2014 dataset [1], the area between the 0m coastline of today and the -120m coastline of the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), is derived and provided in this dataset. To achieve a more realistic and higher resoluting coastline, for producing larger scale maps, the gebco dataset was interpolated from the 30 arc seconds original resolution, to a 0,001 degree resoluting raster.

Köppen-Geiger classifications of paleoclimate model simulations (Presentation)

The development and application of an algorithm to compute the Köppen-Geiger climate classification for CMIP/PMIP climate model data is described in this persentation. The classification algorithm is applied to data from the PMIP III paleoclimate experiments for the Last Glacial Maximum (21k yBP), Mid-Holocene (6k yBP) and the Pre-Industrial (0k yBP, control run) time slices. The input data was interpolated to infer higher resolution classification maps. The classification was implemented using Open Source...

Feasibility studies of terrestrial laser scanning in Coastal Geomorphology, Agronomy, and Geoarchaeology

Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) is a newer, active method of remote sensing for the automatic detection of 3D coordinate points. This method has been developed particularly during the last 20 years, in addition to airborne and mobile laser scanning methods. All these methods use laser light and additional angle measurements for the detection of distances and directions. Thus, several thousands to hundreds of thousands of polar coordinates per second can be measured directly by an automatic deflection of...

Temporal and spatial corridors of Homo sapiens sapiens population dynamics during the Late Pleistocene and early Holocene doi

“Our Way to Europe – Culture-Environment Interaction and Human Mobility in the Late Quaternary” is a research initiative that is funded since July 2009 by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as a Collaborative Research Centre (CRC). The CRC 806 is based at the University of Cologne, University of Bonn and the RWTH Aachen University. The present special issue of Quaternary International compiles 17 contributions defining the starting points and describing first results of the CRC 806. All contributions...

Building Research Data Management Infrastructure using Open Source Software doi

The implementation of a research data management infrastructure for a large interdisciplinary research project is presented here, based on well-established Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) products such as MapServer, MapProxy, GeoExt and pyCSW, as well as the (not primarily geospatial) open source technologies Typo3 and CKAN. The presented implementation depends primarily on the demands for research data management infrastructure by the funding research agency. It also aligns to theory...

PalaeoClimate Classifications (PMIP2 Köppen-Geiger) Spatial PaleoMaps

This dataset represents palaeo climate classification according to the updatede Köppen-Geiger [1] classification scheme. The classifiaction is derived from the PMIP2 [2] palaeoenvironmental simulations data for the time virables of LGM (21k), Mid-holocene (6k) and Pre-Industrial (0k). For the LGM, a LandMask consisting of the -120m coastline [3] was used, for the Mid-Holocene and Pre-Industrial classifications the coastlines of today [4] wehere used.

Facilitating integrated spatio-temporal visualization and analysis of heterogeneous archaelogical and palaeonvironmental research data doi

In the context of the Collaborative Research Centre 806 "Our way to Europe&quot" (CRC806), a research database is developed for integrating data from the disciplines of archaeology, the geosciences and the cultural sciences to facilitate integrated access to heterogeneous data sources. A practice-oriented data integration concept and its implementation is presented in this contribution. The data integration approach is based on the application of Semantic Web Technology and is...
