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
EO project design
Data integration and preprocessing
Classifciation techniques and value adding
Accuracy and product quality assessment
Long-term implementation for operational monitoring
Operationalization of EO in administration

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.
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€).
