Hannes Taubenböck gives a talk at the lunchtime seminar of the ifo-Institute in Munich

May 10, 2023

The ifo-Institute in Munich invited Prof. Hannes Taubenböck to its lunchtime seminar on May 10. In the lecture, he showed that earth observation data and methods can contribute new information on the topic of “building and living” and that more and more spatial knowledge is becoming available. He addressed how and where we live in Germany and, most importantly, what that means – ecologically, economically and socially. Furthermore, the focus was then primarily on the fact that these different aspects not only complement each other, but are also partly contradictory. The new scientific knowledge based on remote sensing and other geospatial data help to better describe and understand the challenges in spatio-quantitative terms. However, he critically discussed, that these findings do not yet provide clear guidance for planning or policy action.
