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 ...
