Land use data created by humans (OSM) was fused with satellite remote sensing data, resulting in a conterminous land use data set without gaps. The first version is now available for all Germany at OSMlanduse.org.
When human input (OSM data) was absent a machine generated missing land use information learning from human inputs and using remote [...]

A recently published paper presents an approach for classifying urban blocks according to their built-up structure based on high-resolution spaceborne InSAR images. Most attributes considered in the classification describe the geometric structure and spatial disposition of the polygon and line features extracted from each block. The feature extraction is carried out on two intensity images [...]

In a recently published study (1), we produced a web based land use land cover (LULC) product based on OSM tags which are constantly updated by contributors/volunteers, and present a Remote Sensing based solution when tags were absent for a test site. We harness the combined benefit of an open source and ever-growing machine generated [...]

Research in psychology and public health shows that there are environmental factors that cause an area to impose more or less stress to a person. One example is that being surrounded by natural green areas (meadows, parks, trees and forests etc. or also blue water areas) has a relaxing influence to the mood of a [...]
