Last Fieldwork Friday, a group of students gathered in Arboretum I to capture Heidelberg’s sequoia trees in the frame of a 3D Sensor Practical. In small groups, the students learned surveying strategies via terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) measurements. It was one of the first joint field campaigns of our [...]

A joint field campaign was conducted this week in the snow-covered black forest (Hundseck, 48.643°N, 8.228°E) by the research groups Hydrology and Climatology (Prof. Menzel) and 3DGeo (Prof. Höfle). Regular in-situ surveys are conducted at the site to investigate snow as crucial component of the hydrologic cycle, forest management, and evapotranspiration.
Surveys comprise measurement of [...]

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 [...]

A 16-year record (2002–2017) of permafrost, active-layer, and meteorological conditions at the Samoylov Island Arctic permafrost research site, Lena River delta, northern Siberia was just published in Earth System Science Data. The long-term observational data is complemented by high-resolution topographic data acquired by terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) in 2017, when the 3DGeo Research Group joined [...]

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 [...]
