Close-range Sensing in Alpine Terrain

In July 2017 the 2nd Innsbruck Summer School of Alpine Research on Close-range Sensing in Alpine Terrain will take place in Obergurgl, Austria. The international summer school is again jointly organised by the University of Innsbruck, the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, and the Austrian Academy of Sciences. The main goal is to provide participants with innovative practical and methodological skills to characterise complex terrain and objects using close-, near range and remote sensing techniques. Theoretical lectures will be complemented by fieldwork assignments and hands-on data processing sessions using different novel software. The assignments will be divided into two different tracks. One track will focus on mountain research, the other on sensor and data processing techniques. A variety of sensor systems will be available for data acquisition in the high mountain surroundings of the summer school venue, including terrestrial laser scanners, unmanned aerial vehicles and spectral cameras. Thematic focus will be on mountain research, and will include vegetation mapping, monitoring and deformation analysis for glaciology, geomorphology and natural hazard research. How to join?
