The workshop in Mexico City was opened by José Sarukhan, director CONABIO. The presentations of DLR and of Mexican experts demonstrated applications for the environment and security, which can be performed using existing and future satellite systems. Applications using German earth observation systems – such as TerraSAR-X – have been specifically highlighted.
Following the workshop, the participants had the opportunity to work themselves with the data using image analysis and geographic information systems. Accompanied by experts of DLR, some Mexican participants also visited the antenna system in Chetumal.
The workshop demonstrated the potential of the cooperation between DLR and Mexican organisations and was a forum for the definition of further collaborative projects.
