From 22 - 25 June, the first field visit within the project AHK-4D - High-resolution and high-frequency monitoring of the rock glacier Äußeres Hochebenkar (AHK) in Austria took place in the Austrian Alps.
The aim of this project is to develop a methodology to quantify the magnitudes and frequencies of individual surface change processes of a [...]

Close-range sensing techniques in Alpine terrain have been taught in the frame of a bi-annual ISPRS summer school since 2015. This week, a group of 40 young researchers (mainly PhD students) is participating in the third edition of the summer school to learn about various sensors, processing techniques, and analysis methods for different topics in [...]

Very interesting terrestrial laser scanning and terrestrial and UAV image datasets of different Alpine sites in Austria have just been openly provided on PANGAEA. The data are related to the first (2015) and second (2017) edition of the Innsbruck Summer School of Alpine Research - Close Range Sensing Techniques in Alpine Terrain and can, for [...]

On our last day in the Ötztal Alps, we had an exciting excursion from Obergurgl to Ramolhaus on 3006 m a.s.l. On our way up we could directly explore glacial history by passing the historical extents and related moraines of the retreating Gurgler glacier. The students also learned about geoarcheology and settlement history in the [...]

We are blogging live from Ramolhaus at 3006 m a.s.l.
After a 4-hours hiking tour with 1100 height meters we are now enjoying the impressive view over glaciers with “Kaiserschmarren” for lunch.

On the last day of fieldwork in the rotmoos valley two groups (terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) and photogrammetry) set off to the rotmoos glacier again. A second TLS dataset was aqcuired
which enables the students to perform a change detection or deformation analysis.
The electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) group futher explored the pre-Quaternary [...]

Today was the second day of field work in the Rotmoos valley in the Ötztal Alps for our 16 students. The hot sun challenged the data acquisition but the impressive landscape makes up for every effort.
The terrestrial laser scanning group climbed up the valley flanks to acquire a high resolution point cloud from an end [...]

As part of the practical field training “3D Geodatenerfassung im Hochgebirge (Ötztal)”, 29
July - 04 August, 16 students explore pyhsical geography in an impressive high-mountain
environment in the Ötztal valley, Austria.
With the help of terrestrial LiDAR, RTK GNSS, close range photogrammetry and electrical resistivity tomography (ERT), multi-source datasets will be captured for the analysis of surface [...]

For the fourth consecutive year, the 3DGeo team acquired the rock glacier Äußeres Hochebenkar in the Austrian Ötztal by terrestrial laser scanning. This adds another point cloud to the multitemporal dataset to observe how the active rock glacier changes over the years.
In an elevation over 2600 m a.s.l., the complex terrain on and around the [...]
