Satellite remote sensing based tools and applications for environmental assessment

The session will focus on innovative earth observation studies developing software tools or thematic map based applications for environmental assessment. Besides studies using VNIR, SWIR, TIR, SAR and passive microwave for their applications, we would like to discuss the opportunities of the EU program Copernicus, providing a variety of products and satellite data at no charge. We welcome studies discussing requirements and pitfalls using satellite data for “smart” applications, but also vivid examples demonstrating how to address a certain user group (e.g. local or national authorities).

Further topics of special interest could be:

  • Methods and necessity for the integration of satellite remote sensing observations and in-situ data
  • Operational aspects of different user groups on current and upcoming satellite missions
  • Issues of spatial observation scale vs. spatial information level

Presentation of research papers:

  • Copernicus data looking for applications – opportunities for environmental informatics by Patrik Hitzelberger, Paulo Carvalho (20 min presentation, 10 min discussion)
  • SenThIS – Sentinels of Thuringian information systems by Sandra Naue, Peter Krause (20 min presentation, 10 min discussion)
