Innovation Lab and thesis presentation

Innovation Lab and thesis presentation

On Thursday 27th of June at 10am in room 0.004 (OKW 86) the following students will present their M.Sc. idea and their innovation lab outcome:

Thesis idea presentation by Johni Miah:
“Detecting and Assessing Ground Subsidence of Dhaka City, Bangladesh, using Synthetic Aperture RADAR Data of Sentinel-1”

Innovation Lab Presentation by Navid Chamani: 
“The inter-annual relationship between Landsat 8-derived LST and spectralindices in a region with alternating dry and wet seasons in Nigeria”

textbooks on remote sensing

textbooks on remote sensing

Our already published textbook on “Remote Sensing and GIS for Ecologists – using Open Source software” was very well perceived and we got very positive feedback. However, either an introduction or more advanced methods and data was asked for as well. Hence, we decided to write another book addressing the fundamentals of spatial data analysis using mainly QGIS and with just a little bit of R. And we started the advanced remote sensing book which introduces hyperspectral, radar, LiDAR, UAV and many further methods and approaches using a variety of programs such as R, python or SNAP.

These books are covering parts of our courses within the EAGLE M.Sc. program and are partly written by our own lecturers.

EAGLE summer dialogue 2019

EAGLE summer dialogue 2019

Our next EAGLE summer dialogue to bring together all EAGLE students and lecturer, staff of our department and all colleagues from close and far away is slowly approaching.

On June 28th we welcome again everybody to join us for the EAGLE summer event with two keynotes:

  • Sandra Lohberger is talking about “Environmental Monitoring” at RSS GmbH and her personal career path as Postdoc
  • Alfred Schumm, director of science and innovation at WWF, will be talking about “Transparency at Sea – examples of the management of public goods” and usage of Earth Observation.

The keynotes will start at 2pm (ZHSG, room 0.001) and the joint BBQ starts afterwards at around 4pm until late (Oswald-Külpe Weg 86).

Please register until June 21st here: https://forms.gle/fDctHpYgkFyDxBjq9
