GIS= geographic information system, CA = cellular automaton, ME = multi criteria evaluation

Softwaretool for planning, economy, science, and education

The software GISCAME (formerly „Pimp Your Landscape“) supports the simulation, visualisation, and evaluation of land use changes. Due to its modular structure, problems can be elaborated individually from different perspectives. 

GISCAME pursues the aim to evaluate land use based on available regional knowledge (empirical data, model results/reports, and expert knowledge) in order to provide a tool to weigh action alternatives for the planner. GISCAME considers the landscape as an integrative layer for interactions between different land use types, land users, and ecosystem processes, which contribute to the provision of ecosystem services. The integrated evaluation and regulation system allows the formulation of parameters as well as the setting of conversion rules. 

GISCAME is one of three components of the GISCAME Suite. For bundling data and for selecting a model region from an interactive map, the software OSM4GISCAME is used. Data which contain gaps or which have too low thematic resolution, can be completed or specified with the help pf the structure generator SG4GISCAME.

GISCAME is based on three methodological approaches:

cellular automaton (modified)
geographic information system
multi-criteria evaluation

Areas of application:

visualisation of impacts on land use planning alternatives 
support of spatial explicit decisions
simulation of alternative planning scenarios 
identification of conflict areas
tool for building compromises
e-learning instrument
evaluation of planning instruments

Further fields of application and reference projects are listed here.

2017 Poleko Poznan

Premiere of the new GISCAME-Suite generation: During 16.-19.10. 2017 at the Poleko fair at BMBF stand PiSolution presents the newest product version of the GISCAME suite.

April 2017

GISCAME is part of the course at the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg.

January 2016

GISCAME summer school took place at the Institute for Landscape Ecology in Concepción, CL

April 2015

Biomass Add-On and GISCAME in a RegioPower article of the latest GLP Newsletter (S. 12)!


GISCAME is being further developed in two BMBF projects and will be applied for the consideration of land use changes in West African states.

July 2014

Graduation of Dr. Susanne Frank. Title: Development and Validation of a Landscape Metrics Based Approach for Standardized Landscape Assessment Considering Spatial Patterns

June 2012- January 2014

For the Project RegioPower the Biomass Module was developed for GISCAME. The add-on facilitates the consideration of biomass development under different land use scenarios.

March 2013

Within a project of UFZ Leipzig a new game user interface on the basis of GISCAME has been developed. With the web-based software GLUES players can simulate what it is like to be a politician who can control the fate of a country by using various measures.

December 2012

Die Software GISCAME shall be used for Public Relations as part of the project "Lebendige Luppe". Targets are e.g. communication of background of the ecosystem services concept and the playful perception of consequences of land use changes. In coordination with the partners, the software is being adapted.

Literature database

The ENFORCHANGE project –“Today’s forests for tomorrow’s environment“– aimed at creating a basis for future sustainable land use and forest management. A large literature database was developed, which contains geodata and publications regarding the model region. A focus was the digital acquisition of difficult available literature from the former GDR, which are available now here in the literature database.
