The announced position is related to the project “Global Agricultural Monitoring. The German contribution”(GLAM.DE), which… Read More


In a newly-published paper featuring Steven Hill and Hooman Latifi from Dept. of Remote Sensing, very high resolution remote sensing (laser scanner data and aerial orthophotos) were used in a full remote sensing-based framework to study post-disturbance tree and stand development, particularly in its early seral stages.   The first step involved extraction of single… Read More


  our end-of-the-year postcards or christmas cards arrived – even though they do not have a very christmas-like design – and will be send out soon. This year our card shows the Landsat NDVI for an area close to Würzburg on the outside. Inside you can see a 3D point cloud from UAV imagery to… Read More


Our EAGLE students setup their own webpage at http://students.eagle-science.org! Read about their background, motivation and expectations concerning the EAGLE M.Sc. study program. Moreover, the EAGLE students will post news about ongoing social as well as scientific activities, excursions, internships or coding experiences. Please visit their webpage and contact them if you like to know more… 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
