The next AniMove summerschool will be from August 27th to September 9th 2017. This intense 2 weeks course covers how to analyze animal movement data and environmental remote sensing data for ecological applications. We will cover again the remote sensing and spatial data analysis part and how to combine it with movement tracks. Data access… Read More

A new published work featuring Hooman Latifi from Dept. of Remote Sensing and Siddhartha Khare from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee presents a full remote sensing-based approach to assess the vegetation diversity across the areas affected and invaded by Lantana camara, an invasive plant species. The study comprises two main steps  utilizing  multi-source satellite earth… Read More


Martin Wegmann and Ruben Remelgado gave a 2 days lecture at the AniMove.org science school at BIK-F in Frankfurt covering applied aspects of remote sensing especially for ecology with a focus on animal movement. More than 20 international PhD and PostDocs attended this winter school, all with their own animal tracking data and specific needs… Read More


Our EAGLE (www.eagle-science.org) and Global Change Ecology (www.global-change-ecology.org) students visited the Earth Observation Centre (DLR-EOC) and got to know the high diversity of applied earth observation research done at DLR. The talks covered various aspects of remote sensing such as application in conservation to animal movement and mapping of urban areas or glaciers.   Welcome… Read More

Henrike Schulte to Bühne started her M.Sc. „Quantifying landcover change using remote sensing data in a transboundary protected area“ in cooperation with the Zoological Society of London, Dr. Nathalie Pettorelli. Her M.Sc. is dealing with evaluating the status and change of nationalparks especially transboundary ones. Countries increasingly cooperate across boundaries for conservation purposes and these… Read More

The article “Temporal segmentation of animal trajectories informed by habitat use” in Ecosphere is finally out. Most animals live in seasonal environments and experience very different conditions throughout the year. Behavioral strategies like migration, hibernation, and a life cycle adapted to the local seasonality help to cope with fluctuations in environmental conditions. Thus, how an… Read More
