21 October 2016Developed and carried out under the leadership of the head of the remote sensing unit at Würzburg University and in collaboration with EOC, a new international Master of Science curriculum began this week at the Institute of Geography and Geology. EAGLE – Applied Earth Observation and Geoanalysis of the Living Environment – provides students from various disciplines with a detailed look at current research initiatives in earth observation.
18 October 2016On 13 October 2016 archaeologists from the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) and other scientists involved in archaeological excavations learned about the work of EOC and the potential of remote sensing. This is already the second workshop on this topic in Oberpfaffenhofen.
17 October 2016Since 2007 and 2010, the German TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X satellite missions have been leaving their mark on the international research scene in the form of unique earth observation data. Scientists from all over the world gathered at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen to attend one of the periodic "TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X Science Meetings" in order to share the results the obtained by using these data and to formulate specifications for future remote sensing technologies.
14 October 2016Over 1.5 million children and their families are currently being supported in over 130 countries worldwide by the humanitarian aid organisation SOS Children’s Villages International. So that this organisation can offer more effective support also in areas affected by natural disasters like floods, earthquakes and forest fires, the Center for Satellite Based Crisis Information (ZKI) of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen is helping SOS Children’s Villages International to develop concepts for emergency and disaster response.
10 October 2016On 09 October 2016, DLR Oberpfaffenhofen again opened its doors to allow enthusiastic fans of aeronautics and space activities a look behind the scenes.
