From Field Measurements to Geoinformation

04-GEO-MB3

Aim

The students analyse how to collect field data for the purposes of training and validation, e.g. of land cover maps and geo-/biophysical parameters.

 

Content

The module focuses in the beginning on the preparation and conduction of field campaigns: selection of sampling schemes and sampling methods / theory and use of different field devices / using drones. The subsequent practical part will focus on one selected field of (remote sensing based) environmental mapping, e.g. land use, vegetation, climate soil, geology, or other fields. Afterwards, depending of the special topic of the practical part, spatial integration and interpolation methods are presented.

 

Coding

Coding examples and individual work will be covered

Software

Various software programs will be used, but mainly OpenSource software such as R.

Techniques

Different techniques will be introduced and practically applied.
