EAGLE visit DLR-EOC

EAGLE visit DLR-EOC

Our EAGLEs in 2018 visited the German Aerospace Center, namely the Earth Observation Center, close to Munich. Various topics were presented by DLR scientist and the EAGLEs had the chance to discuss various topics in small groups with individual scientists.

The presentations were:

  • Optical and radar remote sensing for observing the coastal zone and river basins (Marco Ottinger)
  • Earth observation for vegetation monitoring (Dr. Sarah Asam)
  • Time series analysis of global snow cover (Dr. Andreas Dietz)
  • Sensing the pulse of urban development (Dr. Felix Bachofer)
  • and visits of the ZKI and GSOC

this visit is part of the course by Dr. Claudia Künzer and jointly organized with Juliane Huth

Internship and Innovation Lab presentations

Internship and Innovation Lab presentations

Today some of our EAGLE students presented their internship and innovation laboratory projects. Very interesting topics and they obviously applied and deepened their remote sensing knowledge a lot.

Julia Sauerbrey:  Prediction of Organic Matter Content from Sentinel-2 Imagery in Germany

Marina Reiter: Conservation in Tasmania: Green Leaf Project and World Class Reserve Systems

Sarah Nolting: Regional Scale Statistical Mapping of Snow Avalanche Likelihood and its Combination with an Optical Remote Sensing Based Avalanche Detection Approach – First Attempts for the Province of South Tyrol (Italy)

EAGLE students learn remote sensing field work

EAGLE students learn remote sensing field work

The course “from field work to spatial data” by Tobias Ullmann and Martin Wegmann is covering the whole range of field campaign planning and especially training all necessary methods such as GPS handling, coordinate systems, setting waypoints or finding locations. In the next weeks the EAGLE students will collect field data, link it to attribute tables, import it into a GIS and create a land cover classification. The final project will be an actual field campaign in the Steigerwald area which they have to design, plan, coordinate and analyze it.
