Diagram geohaus-onlineThe electronic data room www.geohaus-online.de has been in use for more than ten years and being improved constantly.

The advantages are easily recognizable at the first glance:
All project participants have the identical information. But the way of use is so simple, that even inexperienced users can handle it.


The German BGH decided on a topic, which is important for tenants and lessors (BGH, Az.VIII ZR 266/14). He declares that the actual geometric area in [m²] of a rental space is relevant for the tenancy and this even if the difference between the actual geometric area in [m²] and the area mentioned in the contract is less than the old tolerance threshold of ± 10 %.

For both, tenant and lessor it is now important to decide, which regulation shall be the base of the contract DIN277/283, Wohnflächenverordnung (WoFlVO) or GIF (M/W). GEOhaus – area determinations are transparent and reproducible. The result can be established on request as an official deed.

The head of the Regional Association Ruhr (RVR) Mrs. Karola Geiss-Netthoefel, visited GEOHAUS at the 12.11.2015. The visit was part of her work in terms of economy promotion and was planned since the EXPO-REAL.

It was a good opportunity to exchange ideas about the geo-information occurences in the region. General topics were the GEOHAUS contributions to the international economic relations, the interdisciplinary knowhow in terms of real estate development and the sensor related innovations for economy and climate protection as well as their benefit for the region.


Doctoral supervisor Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Förstner and Co-examiner Prof. Dr. Ciryll Stachniss (both University Bonn) are pulling the toy wagon with the newly crowned Dr.-Ing. Hanns-Florian Schuster along the Nussallee in Bonn up and down, accompanied by loudly rattling guests, students and passers-by.

The old custom makes the people smile throwing off the load from the candidates shoulders. His doctoral thesis “Image Interpretation of Areal images with learned graphical models” can be downloaded and studied soon from the part “publications” of this website.

GEOHAUS is greatful for 12 years good cooperation. Mrs Mühlenfeld honours the performance of GEOHAUS and is delighted about the entrance of HANSA LUFTBILD AG into the GEOHAUS-Group. This makes Muelheim a little more international as well.

The transposition of the SEVESO III Directive in national law often leads in practice to heavy loss of time, disproportionate secrecy and misinvestments. Especially the secrecy, underpinned by a robust framework of data protection may no longer be maintained since the 1st June 2015 on the basis of art. 14 of the direction 2012/18/EU.

In our daily practice we are aware that the upcoming problems can be alleviated either on the operational side or on the public management side. The Real-Estate-Diagnosis® diffuses the tensions of the debate by the overall view of the property characteristics.
