new PostDoc: Dr. Nima Ahmadian

Dr. Nima Ahmadian joint our department this summer. He received the B.Sc. degree in physics, and the M.Sc. degree in geoinformatics. Later he got his PhD from University of Greifswald. Passionate about synthetic aperture radar (SAR) of soil and vegetation, the move to Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Würzburg, department of remote sensing was a natural fit. With encouragement from the former and current professors (Prof. Dr. Reinhard Zölitz, and Prof. Dr. Christopher Conrad), Nima started to work as a PostDoc researcher in the GLAM.DE project. The aforementioned project is a part of bigger project so called JECAM (Joint Experiment of Crop...

Remote Sensing and animal movement course: AniMove

Our colleagues Benjamin Leutner and Martin Wegmann (edt. of “Remote Sensing and GIS for Ecologists“) introduced the AniMove participants into remote sensing application for animal movement analysis at AniMove 2017. They covered the background as well as hands-on exercises using R and various own R packages such as RStoolbox, rsMove and moveVis and empowered the participants to acquire environmental information about their study area which was then being used to explain the space use of their study animals. Many impressive analysis and huge progress within this summer school could be seen and the AniMove lecturer are keen to see...
