AniMove summerschool

This Summer School provides you with profound knowledge of remote sensing and species distribution and animal movement within conservation. It includes hand-on exercises ranging from land cover and species distribution analysis to modeling of animal movement. +++ application dead-line expired – visit www.animove.org for updates on further summer schools +++     This Summer School includes hand-on exercises ranging from land cover and species distribution analysis to modeling of animal movement. Talks by conservationists and field work (GPS tracking) will be part of the Summer School as well. The analysis of remote sensing data, the linkages with in-situ (animal...

workshop: The 10 highest priority conservation challenges that can be best addressed using remote sensing

This invitation-only workshop will bring together remote sensing scientists and conservationists for an intensive 5 day meeting.  The objective of the workshop is to develop a list of «top ten» questions and will be the first step in the formation of a more organized conservation remote sensing community that will bring together academics, government scientists and conservationists for ongoing discussions and collaborations focusing on applied remote sensing and conservation. NASA funded WCS workshop: “The 10 highest priority conservation challenges that can be best addressed using remote sensing.” The workshop will take place at the USFWS National Conservation Training Center (http://nctc.fws.gov/) in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, during the week of January 7th, 2013. Organised by: Robert Rose (WCS) David Wilkie (WCS) Participants: Woody Turner (NASA) Allison Leidner (NASA) Gary Geller (NASA) Peter Leimgruber (Smithsonian) Matt Hansen (UMD) Sassan Saatchi (NASA-JPL) Martin Wegmann (Uni Wue, CEOS @ DLR) Lilian  (jane Goodall Institute, JGI) Ana Prados (UMBC) Beth Kaplin (Antioch) Erica Fleishman (UC Davies) John Musinsky (NEON) Karyn Tabor (Conservation International) Lilian Pintea (Jane Goodall Institute) Liane Guild (NASA) Ned Horning (AMNH) Rachel Headley (USGS) Scott Goetz (WHRC) Nadine LaPorte (WHRC) Tony Vodacek (CIS) Volker Radeloff (WISC) Tim Boucher...

workshop: remote sensing for biodiversity

The aim of the CEOS SBA Biodiversity Workshop was to provide feedback to the CEOS Societal Benefit Area on Biodiversity as to how satellite remote sensing (RS) can address the needs of the terrestrial biodiversity research and conservation applications communities. The workshop revealed several challenges and opportunities regarding the use of satellite remote sensing in biodiversity research and conservation applications. The CEOS SBA Biodiversity Workshop took place from the 8th to 10th of October 2012 in Munich at DLR (Workshop announcement) funded by DLR and D-GEO. The organisators decided to aim at a max. 15 participant “collaboration” workshop in order to facilitate discussions and development of new approaches in contrast to oral presentations within a full grown workshop or symposium. Due to the very promising result of this approach, which managed to successfully engage all participants and define remote sensing needs in a collaborative environment, several follow-up collaborative workshops are planned. The general findings of this workshop are listed here as well as the link to the whole workshop report. This workshop also provides feedback to the Group on Earth Observations Biodiversity Observation Network (GEO BON) as it defines Essential Biodiversity Variables (EBVs). It was organised by: N. Pettorelli (ZSL), W. Turner and A. Leidner (NASA), P. Leimgruber (SCBI) and M. Wegmann (LMU, CEOS @ DLR) contact: martin.wegmann AT uni-wuerzburg.de   Data access:   Development of user-friendly, intuitive, and...
