Research Aims:

Our aim is:
  • to support environmental research in an interdisciplinary context
  • to combine methods of cartography, GIS and remote sensing in applied research, and thus
  • to contribute to nature conservation and management
We are interested in:
  • applying our skills in very different contexts (e.g. biodiversity research, atmospheric research)
  • developing ideas for new approaches via interdisciplinary cooperations
  • improving the understanding of phenomena at the landscape scale
  • gathering, compiling, and integrating data and information from disparate sources
  • setting-up timeseries for learning from the past in order to look into the future
  • building capacity of people from developing countries as well as of those from other disciplines
Approaches and methodologies applied:
  • geodatabases (considering meta data, geodata quality)
  • Web-based services (geodata visualisation tool including data quality, online geodata-catalogue)
  • cartography (desktop mapping, GIS-based, digital image processing)
  • interactive visualisation tools (Flash, Macromedia Director)
  • customisation of GIS applications / tool development (ArcGIS, ArcEngine)
  • GIS-based model development for simulating changes/processes (ArcGIS, ArcObject)
  • pixel-based multi-spectral image processing (Landsat, SPOT; ERDAS Imagine)
  • object-based image analysis (QuickBird; eCognition)
  • change analysis (including development types)
  • landscape metrics and other indices (e.g. related to fragmentation, disturbance)
