Workshop on Multi-Source 3D Geoinformation Extraction for Improved Management of Forest and Natural Hazards (5 Sep 2016, 9-17h)

Time: Monday, 5 September 2016, 09:00 – 17:00h
Venue: Seminar Room 5.104, Im Neuenheimer Feld 205, Mathematikon

No fees: Attendance of the scientific program is without costs.

Objective and Scope

The main objective of this public workshop is to bring together experts from Geosciences and 3D Earth observation / Geomatics, from academia and industry, as well as from Europe and Asia. The specific thematic focus is the development of automatic methods to extract geoinformation for improved management of forests and natural hazards in Asia and Europe. Multiple sources of 3D remote sensing data (e.g., LiDAR, photogrammetry; mobile mapping on ground and with drones) and methods to integrate these data will be presented by international experts from universities in Germany and Taiwan, and from leading companies for 3D data acquisition.
