UAS Lidar field work on Zugspitze

May 30, 2022

A first explorative UAS-based Lidar and thermal data acquisition was successfully finished and we received very interesting high resolution spatial data of the terrain including snow cover and especially rock structures.

Flying UAS systems on nearly 3000m ASL and with high mountain environmental conditions is challenging but also quite interesting for our EAGLE M.Sc. students who joint for this first flight. More flights are planned for later this year aiming for specific research questions. Also visiting the Schneefernerhaus Research Station (UFS) was very interesting and a perfect location for high mountain research.
