Join our cycling team in this year’s CITY CYCLING campaign

Join our cycling team in this year’s CITY CYCLING campaign

The Department participates in the CITY CYCLING campaign from May 13th to June 2nd 2017 and we invite you to join our team “Pixelschubser” by registering here.

As scientists, our research focus is on the application of remote sensing methods in order to support sustainable development in the core fields of “ecosystem functioning and biodiversity”, “sustainable land management” as well as “applied environmental modelling and forest inventory”. Besides that, all of us can contribute to a responsible interaction with the resources of our environment in our daily life. Cycle for a better climate!

EAGLE students back to their second semester

EAGLE students back to their second semester

After the semester holidays, we welcome our EAGLE students back to their second semester!

Some of them already took the chance to take part in a short course on landscape ecology for wetland monitoring and management with QGIS given by the ERASMUS lecturer Dr. Aurelie Davranche (more) the last two days.
Today, the course   “Advanced spatial analysis for geoscientists – object-oriented image analysis” started. It is a hands-on-data-seminar jointly given by our colleagues Dr. Michael Thiel, who will teach eCognition during the summer term, and Dr. Christian Geiss who will be at our department until the end of the week. Christian is an invited guest lecturer from DLR’s Remote Sensing Data Center (Department: Geo-Risks and Civil Security) and he is working on mapping and characterization of urban areas with respect to risk and vulnerability assessment. If you want to learn more about Christian’s Team click here.

We wish all students and lecturers interesting seminars (full list) and a successfull summer term!
