Remote Sensing Midsummer Dialogue at the Department

Beside participants from the University of Wuerzburg and the DLR, also many colleagues from companies and a variety of national and international research institutions joined this event. The midsummer dialogue was organized by the EAGLE students. The students were keen to meet and discuss with many lecturers and guests the working conditions and opportunities in remote sensing. The organizers are very happy that this midsummer dialogue was a great success and we plan to organize it next year again with further topical talks and discussions. More impressions can be found here: The 1st EAGLE midsummer dialogue took place...

new R package to visualize remote sensing data and movement tracks: moveVis

Our EAGLE M.Sc. student Jakob Schwalb-Willmann developed the moveVis package and is now available via CRAN. Beside the animation of movement also the corresponding environmental values can be shown for the whole extent, as cumulative values per individual or across the whole group or just the average value of the last n steps to highlight changes in species-environment relationships. All graphical parameters can be changed by the user via ggplot commands for the map and the statistics graphs. MoveVis will also be covered in the next AniMove course. Please report any issues to the bug manager at or...
