As part of the practical field training “Physiogeographische Geodatenerfassung” this week, a group of students acquired the gravel bar and terrace at an oxbow of the old Neckar river near Ilvesheim (49°28′36″ N 8°34′34″ E) with geophysical and 3D surveying techniques.
In small groups, the students learned a different surveying strategy and processing the acquired data [...]
