Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, Department of Geosciences | Partner

The Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen is one of Europe’s oldest universities and is one of Germany’s 11 universities with special support under the “excellence initiative” of the German government. The University of Tübingen has an international reputation as a place of research across the academic and scientific spectrum. For decades, the university has been initiating and developing core research in the innovative new areas appearing at the interfaces of conventional research fields. The Geoinformatics Unit develops and applies geospatial methods and techniques for different fields of research. The research foci are in the field of environmental monitoring and management of natural resources using qualitative and quantitative methods. Remote sensing is an important part of the Unit’s methodological toolset. The Unit possesses expertise with medium- to high-resolution optical as well as microwave data. Its tasks in the Rapid Planning project include:

  • Urban remote sensing
  • Geospatial analysis
  • Spatial database management
  • WebGIS development

The Geoinformatics Unit hosts the geodata server and offers spatial analysis to the collaborating partners. The results are provided in an interactive online system (WebGIS).
