Das Reichsgericht in Leipzig

The new book “Über den Dächern von Leipzig - Over the roofs of Leipzig”, 2nd edition 2013, published by Lehmstedt, is an uniquely illustrative work about the development of a town in that time. The aerial photographs most come from our Hansa Luftbild or from Junkers Luftbild.

The editor is Peter Brogiato. With the accompanying scientific text and the afterword from Dr. Matthias Meusch, it shows the upper class Leipzig as well as the progressive quarters, built to fight the housing shortage in these years. The Second World War and the socialist period destroyed a lot. But now the city of Leipzig found back to its old quality of town building.


The management level of Hansa Luftbild came to Klosterheide invited by Geohaus for a three days conclave in the little village of Klosterheide (Brandenburg). The goal was to focus the goals of the company for the future. The fruitful discussions lead to large working tasks for the coming summer. At the 2nd day leading people of Geohaus and Geosat came along to find out fields of cooperation between both groups. Of course both groups fought in mixed groups in practical and (brain-) acrobatics on the near Wutz – Lake



The photo – grey in grey – shows a scan of an inaccessible space in an old public building. It reveals information concerning the geometry of these spaces.

Over a small opening the spaces are connected with outdoors. By a special Geohaus-device we succeeded to make the spaces three-dimensionally visible. Every point of the cloud gets an absolute coordinate. So theses spaces can get cm-sharp  positions in the architectural designs.


The topics infrastructure, disaster management, coastal survey and border control were discussed on a delegation trip to DELHI under the Parliamentary Secretary of State Otto, Federal Ministry of economy and Technology from 8th to 14th January 2013.

High level personalities coming from the Indian state, management and technique were the discussion partners. The German delegation consisted of key representatives of the German industry and trade, but they came also from research organizations, from the GIZ. Managers of the German fair organizations, the fire brigades played an important role. For the German Geo-information GEOHAUS and HANSA LUFTBILD  AG were invited to join.

Whilst the German industry is well known in India and has good opportunities, the Indian partners were interested in the German voluntary based fire brigades and the overall scheme of the German geo-information.

Hans Oberscheid (93), self employed farmer in Duisburg, is feared and admired in the public building authorities. Being more than 70 years self-employed, his experiences as honorary judge at the Agricultural Chamber and his experiences with his real estate taught him not to give up, use his clear brain, have a clear look upon the interests of his opponents to reach his goal. Recently, having lost a crazy suit case at the Regional Administrative Tribunal concerning four garages moved by him from one place to the next, he did not allow himself to be kept from going into the next instance (“the Regional Court in the first instance decide always in favor of the public authority!”). After the judge’s decision at the higher court, he won at the Regional Court, based on the GEOHAUS – consulting, which he early had acknowledged to be right.


Blick in den Stahlbau

Last year GEOHAUS was asked to do measurements and Evaluations all over Europe. At present a new cold storage house is being built south of Moscow. It has a processing temperature inside of – 21 degree Celsius. The weather temperatures differ about 60 degree Celsius over the year. This phenomenon and the mass acceleration during the work inside mean a great challenge for the steel construction. The special achievement of the GEOHAUS High Rack Inspect procedure is that the special structure fits better than ± 1,5 [mm] with the planning. Under such conditions the force deflection by static malfunction is minimal. Please contact: Dipl.-Ing. Lars Gerdau Tel +49 208 45000 20.



GEOsat Gmbh, a member of the GEOHAUS Group initiated and coordinates the government – funded project “Field2Factory”. The ministry of economy (Minister Mrs. Thoben) and the ministry for Innovation (Minister Prof. Pinkwart) elected “Field2Factory” as project of the Year.Project partners are ZUTRA – Speditionsgesellschaft GmbH, Köln, belonging to the group of Pfeifer & Langen and AED-SICAD AG in Bonn. The technological goal is the coupling of a central GIS of the industrial utilizer and commercializer with the decentral information of farmer, service agent and carrier. The complex interaction will be digitally mapped and radically smoothed. Beginning with the carrots the project shall open the way for other field fruits. Initial element of the project is Geosat’s “Geobox – smart – System”, which brings in its quality as a robust multi-sensor-vehicle.



The  first generation of „GEObox smart“, produced by GEOsat (www.geosat.de), carried out their duties without any failure or maintenance in the construction site vehicles under ruggedized conditions.

The software coupled the location data with the order data for secure invoicing towards the client. Order management and field staff documented their competence.

Our partners at the construction site could recourse to this information, which has often proved to be very useful.

The new “Geobox smart” impresses by higher data security in cases of a lack of server or internet connection. The automatic evaluation of date is easier.


The implementation of the legal coordinate cadastre brings up the question in the daily practice, where is the right place for border stones, if the coordinate of “highest accuracy” differs from its demarcation.

The cadastral material in form of sketches has grown over 200 years. This is the reason why every point has a more or less big area of tolerance. If a border demarcation is laying inside that area of tolerance, and if it was acknowledged by the former neighbors, when the border point was installed, then its site cannot be refused statistically.

Its site can only be shifted in that case, if the neighbors confirm that in an official protocol. And even in such a case the shift of the stone must be within the tolerance area. Consequently the Cadastral Authority of Muelheim at the Ruhr has downgraded all its coordinates of highest quality to avoid legal uncertainties by the legal coordinate cadastre. The normal citizen can hardly understand the facts, even if the consequences can be very far-reaching.


To ease the situation for the citizens the Public Appointed Surveyors in GEOHAUS are called upon to give more information in the topological sketches belonging to the official protocol in form of relative measures to walls or other topographical features. They help the neighbors to have a better orientation about the legal site of the border and the border points.



What am I doing for my country?

Fabien Omboudou Ndjina, grown up in the bush of Cameroon, passed a long way from school, study in France, being an employee in government and at Géomètres Experts, to his own company with many employees. He is working now in Cameroon and the neighbouring countries.

Fabien Omboudou Ndjina

He met his wife, a Cameroonian, in Belgium; they have five children, the two eldest start to study in the country and abroad. Fabien and his family are the example of the upcoming Africa; they are the ray of hope to their relatives, friends and the youth in the bush, which they are deeply connected with. His ideas about the poverty crown his desk. The understandability of his ideas brought him reputation in the country.
