MSc opportunities: remote sensing in ecology and conservation

species_richness_HyMap

Biodiversity analysis and conservation decision relies on adequate and meaningful data that are available on a long-term and global basis.  Such environmental information need adequate spatial and temporal resolution and remote sensing data does provide a wide range of potentially suitable data sets. Various approaches concerning remote sensing data use for biodiversity and conservation exist ...

MSc handed in on impact of remote sensing for biodiversity monitoring

MSc handed in on impact of remote sensing for biodiversity monitoring

Anna Stephanie handed in her MSc thesis on “Impact of remote sensing characteristics for biodiversity monitoring”. Very impressive study on multi-scale, multi-model and multi-variable analysis of mangroves in Myanmar. She was supervised by Martin Wegmann. While Myanmar is one of the world’s hotspots for biodiversity and endemism, it is currently undergoing enormous political and economic transformations ...

MSc handed in on object-oriented classification of historical maps for ecosystem services

MSc handed in on object-oriented classification of historical maps for ecosystem services

Yrneh Ulloa handed in her MSc “Land change in the Main catchment with an Object Based approach using eCognition” within GCE which dealt with classifying landcover in historical maps (1810+) automatically using object oriented approaches. She was supervised by Martin Wegmann. The monitoring of land cover and land use change is critical for assessing the provision ...

Explore species-environment interaction

Explore species-environment interaction

Analyzing species-environment interaction is feasible using various data and method. An increasing technology is the tracking of animals and especially its linkage to remote sensing, as covered in AniMove.org. However, with this technology new challenges have to be dealt with, e.g. the decrease in accuracy of tracking devices in dense vegetation. In this innovation laboratory ...
