Martin Wegmann is based at the remote sensing department of Prof. S. Dech, head of DLR-DFD (German Aerospace Data Center) in Würzburg where he leads the Remote Sensing and Biodiversity research topic. Moreover he is an assistant professor at the Global Change Ecology M.Sc. Program and the point of contact for the CEOS Biodiversity initiative, which aims at coordinating space borne activities for biodiversity and conservation related activities. Moreover he is on the steering committee of the Conservation Remote Sensing group, advisory board of the EU BON project and Implementation Committee in GEO BON.

In his courses the theoretical background as well as the practical implementation of remote sensing for biodiversity research and conservation application are taught. The remote sensing data analysis as well as the integration with biodiversity data and the spatial statistics including spatial modelling are mainly done with OpenSource software such as R and GRASS.  The majority of courses are done within the Global Change Ecology MSc. program but other courses have been done in Würzburg as well as in different locations in West Africa.
The added value of spatial and temporal variable environmental data sets for corresponding biodiversity modelling approaches are in the focus of his work. Especially the spatial arrangement of landcover and its implication for spatial biodiversity patterns based on remotely sensed information interests him. Most of his work has been done in Europe and Africa.
