Remote Sensing in Ecology

Remote Sensing in Ecology

The EAGLE course "Remote Sensing in Biodiversity and Conservation Science" took place in the last week of the summer term at the field research station in Fabrik Schleichach, Steigerwald. 20 biology and EAGLE students worked and lived together for one week and developed several joint ecological remote sensing projects. Beside the actual data analysis and ...

UAV application for remote sensing course started

UAV application for remote sensing course started

The course on UAV application for Remote Sensing started successfully. The weather was good enough to do some first flights. In the next weeks and months more flights will be undertaken and data collected for different fields sites in order to gain more information concerning their ecology, geomorphology, archeology or forestry.  Several software solutions and ...

testing UAV and D-GPS application in the Steigerwald

one of our field sites in the Steigerwald For several upcoming EAGLE courses we visited potential field sites and tested our equipment. During this first field work of the year our UAV and D-GPS data collection were tested in the Steigerwald at the research station of the University Wuerzburg in Fabrik Schleichach. The research station is ...

M.Sc. handed in on animal movement and remote sensing

M.Sc. handed in on animal movement and remote sensing

The M.Sc. thesis “Can animal movement and remote sensing data help to improve conservation efforts?” by Matthias Biber M.Sc. student within the Global Change Ecology program handed in his thesis. He explored the potential of remote sensing data to explain animal movement patterns and if these linkages can help to improve conservation efforts. He used ...

M.Sc. started on monitoring protected areas

M.Sc. started on monitoring protected areas

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 within the Global Change Ecology study program. Her M.Sc. is dealing with evaluating the status and change of nationalparks especially transboundary ones. Countries increasingly cooperate ...
