Close Range Sensing Techniques in Alpine Terrain

when 5 July 2015 - 11 July 2015
duration 1 week
credits 5 ECTS
fee EUR 375

The main goal of the Joint Summer School 2015 is to provide students with innovative practical and methodological skills to characterize complex terrain and object features using close- and near range remote sensing techniques. This summer school is jointly organised by the University of Innsbruck and the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS)

Course leader

Johann Stötter, Martin Rutzinger, Rudolf Sailer, Roderik Lindenbergh, Marco Scaioni, Francesco Pirotti, Bernhard Höfle, Sander Oude-Elberink

Target group

This summer school is designed for any well-motivated student; advanced graduate students, PhDs, post-docs and young researchers from any field, provided they have interest in these type of techniques.

Course aim

Thematic focus
will be on mountain research, and will include vegetation characterization, (deformation) monitoring for glaciology, geomorphology and natural hazard research.

Technical focus
will be on sensor and data aspects, such as sensor modelling, calibration, data acquisition, 2D and 3D data fusion, geometric methods for information extraction from point clouds and (multispectral) images and data quality assessment.

Theoretical focus
will address critical steps within a processing chain, such as impact of a registration method, choice of stand points during data acquisition and derivation of deformation vectors, issues related to multispectral image analysis etc.

Fee info

EUR 375: Each applicant is requested to (1) register via the registration website and (2) send a one page CV and a short motivation letter to alpine-research-2015@uibk.ac.at until December 30, 2014. This information will be used by the organizational committee to decide which candidates will be accepted. At a later stage (3), participants will be requested to provide an abstract describing their poster, which participants will present during one evening.
