GeoMonday 2015.2 – Route360°

MI_logoThe idea of Motion Intelligence and its technology Route360° is to simplify the online search for spatial objects (local search) by the use of sophisticated route planning and travel time analysis and visualization.

Motion Intelligence provides the Technology to third party institutions and companies. Additionally Motion Intelligence offers to create concepts, develop and run applications, extend existing applications or create new ones from scratch. Motion Intelligence is specialized in travel time analysis and visualization in order to help people finding or evaluating spatial objects.


Henning studied Cartography and Geomatics in Karlsruhe from 2006 until 2010 and finished with a bachelor’s degree. Since 2010 he was studying Geoinformation and Visualization at Potsdam University and received his masters degree in 2014.

In his studies he focused on the analysis of large traffic networks. The final thesis “Interaktive Analyse und Visualisierung der Erreichbarkeit in Verkehrsnetzen“ was supervised by the Institute of Geography and the Hasso-Plattner-Institut (HPI).

It recieved a lot of positive feedback and is the basis of the startup Motion Intelligence.

GeoMonday 2015.1 – Barrier-Free Routing for Increased Mobility and Accessibility Using OSM

mdv2As part of the SIMBA (Safe and Mobile with Assistance Systems) research project, Mentz Datenverarbeitung (mdv) has integrated data from the OpenStreetMap (OSM) project into its trip planner system, enhancing the routing algorithm to increase mobility and accessibility using the available attributes in OSM.


The project goals are to ensure autonomy of the elderly and disabled and to provide safe and comfortable trips that account for their specific mobility limitations.

One of the new improvements is the consideration of specific link types and attributes, which are imported from the OSM source data and integrated into the routing network graph.

mdv1Marc Ullrich has studied civil engineering at the TU Munich and works as a Senior Software Engineer at mdv (Mentz Datenverarbeitung GmbH). He is member of the EFA journey planner developer team and works on national and international projects. Find his LinkedIn profile here:

Talk 3: Turn-by-Turn Navigation and Rich Information for Outdoor Activities

Markus HallermannFor outdoor activities like cycling, hiking, road or mountain biking the user needs a lot of different information to choose the best fitting or better the most beautiful route for his activity. Smart phones provide the hardware for true turn-by-turn navigation.

In this talk Markus Hallermann will discuss the challenges of maps and the rich information the user demands planning and navigating a outdoor route.

Grown up in Austria and with a background in physics Markus is CEO and co-founder of komoot.
