Why learn Earth Observation data analysis?

Freely available satellite data and smart, cloud-based geodata infrastructures enable a fast and efficient integration of satellite based Earth observation techniques in environmental monitoring projects. Proven tools and techniques for information retrieval, mapping and monitoring exist for a wide range of environmental or urban monitoring applications. 

Global monitoring

Interdisciplinary applications

Free and open access

Monitor large areas regularly

Access ready-to-use established toolsets

Produce informative maps and valuable spatial information

What can you expect?

The participants will learn the full process of designing and implementing satellite-based monitoring approaches in the context of global change, ecological assessment and urban planning up to creating semi-automatic processing chains using e.g. Python.

Satellite missions and sensor types

Data gateways

EO project design

Data integration and preprocessing

Classifciation techniques and value adding

U

Accuracy and product quality assessment

Long-term implementation for operational monitoring

Operationalization of EO in administration

Over 15 Years Of Remote Sensing Training

GeoSens is a collective of researchers with extensive experience in the topics of remote sensing and geoanalysis. GeoSens is an intensive training course for learning spatial data, especially Earth Observation data analysis.

GeoSens is a non-profit training initiative run by the Department of Remote Sensing at the University of Wuerzburg.

GeoSens provides knowledge on theory of remote sensing, as well as practical approaches to apply remote sensing science within various research frameworks. We aim to use OpenSource software as far as possible as well as OpenAccess data within our courses.

All members of GeoSens are highly experienced and committed to support and develop interdisciplinary trainings and foster collaboration in order to provide valuable remote sensing application.

01

What We Do

We offer interdisciplinary and international trainings on remote sensing applications. Various software solutions are used as well as diverse spatial data sets. We create trainings on various levels of expertise and aiming at different applications.

02

Our Approach

The examples provided in our trainings aim at very specific applications in order to increase the interest and understanding of remote sensing research for a variety of scientific fields such as ecology, conservation, agriculture or urban.

03

Our Mission

Increasing the understanding of the potentials and limitations of remote sensing for various field of applications through applied trainings is our mission. Empowering non-remote sensing scientists to apply Earth Observation data in a meaningful way and being able to contribute to a better understanding of environmental patterns.

04

Our Team:

Our team consists of our remote sensing scientists with diverse experiences in Earth Observation. We approach the best suitable lecturer for each specific course.
