Last week our team member Dr. Michael Schultz successfully defended his PhD Defence about
Tropical deforestation monitoring using Landsat time series and breakpoint detection
at Wageningen University and Research (WUR). It was supervised by Prof. Dr M. Herold (Professor of Geo-information Science and Remote Sensing at Wageningen University & Research). We congratulate cordially! Keep up the good [...]

At the recent EuroGEOSS Workshop in Geneva, LandSense researchers from IIASA and Heidelberg University hosted an interactive mapping session to showcase the power of crowdsourcing for map validations as announced earlier.
Using the openly available Land Cover Validation Platform (LACO-Wiki), participants collaboratively validated a land use and land cover map of Geneva, which brings together data from [...]

Informationen und Navigation zu urbanen Grünflächen in Städten – meinGrün
Neues mFund Kooperations-Projekt meinGrün wird vom BMVI gefoerdert.
Problemstellung
Um in Städten trotz Wachstum und Nachverdichtung eine hohe Lebensqualität zu sichern, spielen Grünflächen eine essentielle Rolle, da sie sich positiv auf Stadtklima und Biodiversität auswirken und als Orte der Naturerfahrung und Entspannung dienen. Bürgerinnen und Bürger sollten daher [...]

The effective monitoring of land-use and land-cover changes (LULCC) is a basic requirement for understanding socio-enviromental processes of local to global scales. Remote sensing data and methods have long been established as the most effective approach for monitoring LULCC. The potential for further increasing the effectiveness of this approach is proportional to the astonishingly large [...]

With the aim of rapidly estimating the updated state of the CORINE land-cover map at the frequency with which the OpenStreetMap (OSM) dataset is edited and extended, we propose an approach for automatically associating widely used OSM tags to Level 1 and Level 2 CORINE land-cover classes. This association is probabilistic and is undertaken based [...]

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 [...]
