Colloquium with Matthias S. Moeller, Beuth University

Please join the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning as we welcome Matthias S. Moeller from Beuth University for Applied Sciences, Berlin for our colloquium series.

Moeller will present his talk "A Changing Planet from a Remote Sensing Perspective" on Tuesday, April 30 at 3:00 p.m. in COOR 5536.

About the talk:

Our planet Earth is permanently changing. Change is the most important issue regarding life on Earth. The solar systems, the ecliptic of our planet and the planetary system are important factors for that change. We can roughly differentiate changes with these four factors: (1) time, (2) scale, (3) origin and (4) impact. Many changes can be observed and later analyzed using remote sensing images, acquired from various sensors. Of course, that image data has to be combined with and used in combination with ground truth measures.

In this talk, a short introduction into remote sensing and photogrammetry will be given first. The “four change factors” will be analyzed then and practical examples will demonstrate the efficient usage of remote sensing imagery for the analysis of changes regarding time, scale, origin and impact. In a final statement the speaker will give an outlook in future development, especially when thinking about Geo-IoT.
