Earth Observation Training

Learn remote sensing and spatial data analysis with GeoSens at

University of Wuerzburg, Germany

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 and urban monitoring 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?

In the course at the University of Würzburg’s Department of Remote Sensing 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.

Satellite missions and sensor types

Data gateways

EO project design

Data integration and preprocessing

GeoSens is a non-profit training initiative. Due to the courses being offered at a public research organization we are not allowed to make any profit and we also do not intend to make any. Our main goal is to increase Earth Observation analysis skills.



GeoSens consists of researchers with extensive experience in remote sensing data analysis and international training

How to reach us

City bus number 29 runs from the train station via city center directly to the University at bus stop Magdalene-Schoch-Straße. You can board the bus every 30 minutes (at Busbahnhof (train station), Barbarossaplatz or Mainfrankentheater), in the mornings for example 08:38am (Busbahnhof) to 08:56am.

→ Detailed schedule here, general bus journey planner here (German only unfortunately)

Alternatively, city busses 14, 114 and 214 run to Philosphisches Institut from where it takes you 5 minutes by foot to the TGZ.
We recommend to buy day tickets (5,40€).
