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! Click here for more information on the campaign and the competition in...

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...

CODE-DE – Satellite data free of charge for everyone

Our colleagues at DLR released a platform which allows easy and free of charge access to Sentinel remote sensing data: CODE-DE makes possible free-of-charge, simple access to data from the Sentinel satellites and to information products from the European Copernicus programme–including an up-to-date cloud-free mosaic of Germany, produced at EOC. The platform will also provide access to national geodata infrastructure (GDI-DE). This portal provides harmonised and standardised German geodata from a wide variety of sources. By agreement with industrial partners it is also planned to offer data from the German radar satellites TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X as well as high-resolution optical images from RapidEye satellites. CODE-DE offers a one-stop shop. The data is collected in a single portal so that users no longer have to search through various databases, as formerly. This gives them direct access to an enormous amount of data—the Sentinel satellites alone will produce a data volume of some 50 petabytes by the end of 2020.   read more: http://www.dlr.de/eoc/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-11932/20674_read-48811/    ...
