Spatial Python course within the EAGLE M.Sc. program

Last week Steven Hill and Thorsten Dahms gave a course that introduced EAGLE students to Python-based spatial data analysis. The advantages and challenges of different python libraries, data sets and methods were covered in hands-on exercises and also discussed critically with the students. Steven and Thorsten greatly appreciated the discussions with EAGLE students about the similarities and differences between Python and R. In addition to the informative lectures and presentations of the students, the practical application of remote sensing data in Python was also part of this course. The course covered everything from the basic introduction to Python to...

Remote Sensing block courses – winter 2018

In the past few weeks various block courses by colleagues from DLR and the Department of Remote Sensing have taken place. Divers topics how remote sensing can be used, which methods have to be applied and how to put it into practice were covered by our colleagues Hannes Taubenböck, Martin Bachmann and Andreas Dietz. Another block course will focus on python programming for spatial data analysis and later in April object oriented classifications and advanced spatial analysis for geoscientists will be offered as block course before the actual summer term starts again with the regular...

Urban Geography Course by Hannes Taubenböck

This week Hannes Taubenböck from DLR discussed with our EAGLE students the application of remote sensing applications within urban research. The advantages and challenges of different sensors, data sets and methods were critically discussed with the students. Hannes very much appreciated the critical and controversial discussion with the EAGLE students which are the foundation for sound scientific exchange and progress. Beside the very informative lecture and presentations by the students also the practical application of remote sensing data for mapping urban areas and extracting a variety of relevant parameters was covered. Hannes started with object oriented classifications methods within...
