University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences - Institute of Surveying Remote Sensing and Land Information

The Institute focuses on applied remote sensing and GIS technologies related to agriculture, forestry and environment, such as land use mapping, forest monitoring, vegetation phenology and ecological interpretation. It has long lasting expertise in quantitative Earth observation modelling and in geoinformation systems. Further activities include automatic knowledge-based satellite image analysis and GPS surveying techniques.

Technologies and competences

The Institute has strong expertise in: 1) Radiative transfer modelling for the retrieval of vegetation biophysical variables, 2) Assimilation of Earth observation data into process-driven dynamic process models for the simulation of energy and water exchange between land and atmosphere, 3) Mapping of past and actual land cover/land use, 4) Land surface phenology, and 5) Precision Agriculture and Precision Forestry
