Forschungsschwerpunkte und wissenschaftliches Interesse

  • Bio-Semantic, Eco-Semantic, Geo-Semantic, Linked Open Data (LOD), Spatial Linked Open Data (SLOD)
  • traiting ecology, traiting remote sensing, Finden einer gemeinsamen "Sprache" zwischen den Disziplingen Fernerkundung , Biologie, Ökoloie, Geographie um, neue Technologien und kommende Fernerkundungsdaten effizient einsetzen zu können., Kopplung verschiedener Ansätze in den Disziplinen - Biologie, Macro-Ökologie um den Vorteil jedes Ansatzes zu nutzen und integrative Forschung zu realisieren.
  • Erfassung von Landnutzungsintensität (LUI) und Hemeroby mit Fernerkundungsmethoden
  • Pattern-Prozess Interaktionen und deren Skaleneffekte in Pflanzengesellschaften, Biotope, Habitate, Biome
  • Erkennung von Mustern und Strukturen in Daten mittels Fernerkundung, Data Mining und Spatial Data Mining Methoden
  • Vegetationsmuster als Sensor für Boden- und bodenhydrologische Charakteristika
  • Verknüpfung terrestrische Sensornetzwerke mit airborn, spaceborne RS Daten
  • Hyperspektrale Fernerkundung Fernerkundung
