The course “Sampling for remote sensing, application to costal ecosystems” by Aurelie Davranche, University of Angers, took place this October in Wuerzburg at our Department of Remote Sensing. Monitoring coastal ecosystems for management decision support requires efficient tools but simple to use for managers who can be often not familiar with image analysis. In this… Read More


The remote sensing course in the Global Change Ecology MSc program started again with the new students. It is again very interesting how spatial data, spectral information and its corresponding techniques are perceived. Highly challenging to teach remote sensing and GIS to our new MSc students but also lots of fun to see how the… Read More


The course “Remote Sensing and Biodiversity analysis” is currently taking place in the Bavarian Forest Nationalpark with lectures on botany, various remote sensing field methods, analysing LiDAR and hyperspectral remote sensing data and R coding. We already covered the botany and history of the Nationalpark and some first field data collection methods such as GPS… Read More


Our next R hands-on meeting will be at the 1st of April.  Our colleague Alejandra Narvaez-Vallejo will present her R developments  concerning the classification of LULC in West Africa by means of multi-temporal and multi-sensoral Remote Sensing data. The meeting will take place at 10:00am in our lab meeting room Oswald-Külpe-Weg 86, Room 01.003 (first… Read More


Jean-Bosco Benewindé Zoungrana is back from Burkina Faso for a second research internship at our department. After the very successful first stay, where he was able to finalize his first paper  the aim of this stay is to reinforce skills in land use/cover classification and vegetation persistence modelling with Random Forest and its implementation in… Read More
