Mapping urban areas and their environment is crucial to gain a deeper understanding of e.g. urban heat islands their driving factors as well as other spatial information such as noise propagation or pollution. 
In parallel to earth observation methods through space and air-borne sensors do we collect environmental data via sensors mounted on a cargo bike. In close collaboration with the informatics professors Marco Schmidt and Andreas Nuechter who designed and mounted various sensors like lidar, multispectral, thermal or sound sensors on our cargobike. In a joint project a variety of spatio-temporal datasets are collected from June onward and will be analysed jointly in the forthcoming months. 
More details will be added (in german) on this page: www.erdbeobachtung.org
