Geoinformation in Environmental Planning

"We understand Human-Environment Systems from space"

Our focus is on modeling and mapping spatio-temporal changes of landscape patterns and biophysical fluxes with remote sensing methods.

Our research concentrates on the drivers, pressures, state, impact, and response of Human-Environment Systems caused by climate and land use change.

Our spatial perspective covers natural and semi-natural environments with forests, grasslands, and urban green areas around the globe and our objective is to gain regional process understanding.

Our methods include time series analysis from different sensors, AI applications and physically-based modeling. With drone measurements we bridge the gap from local to regional scale.  

Together with researches from other disciplines and local stakeholders, we gain a better understanding of the Human-Environment Systems to identify future pathways to stay within the planetary boundaries.
