Presenting our project “Ecosystem Services of the Urban Forest: Modeling using Remote Sensing & Artificial Intelligence” at the “Woche der Umwelt”

March 26, 2024

 

The #WochederUmwelt presents innovative environmental protection topics and projects: On June 4 and 5 2024, the #Bundespräsident and the Deutsche Bundesstiftung Umwelt #DBU invite you to Berlin for a greener future.

 

We will be there as one of around 190 exhibitors and present our project “Ecosystem Services of the Urban Forest: Modeling using Remote Sensing & Artificial Intelligence”.

 

Our project aims to comprehensively assess and quantify ecosystem services provided by urban forests, such as reducing surface runoff, mitigating heat stress, and sequestering carbon. By leveraging remote sensing and artificial intelligence, we systematically characterize trees in Munich to later estimate the ecosystem services they provide. Our goal is to support intelligent and sustainable city planning, fostering resilient, green urban infrastructure and aiding cities in adapting to climate change.

The “Week of the Environment” (Woche der Umwelt) is an event hosted at Bellevue Palace Park in Berlin. It serves as an innovation showcase for environmental protection, featuring over exhibitions and specialized forums discussing topics ranging from sustainability in various industries to biodiversity conservation and climate resilience. Attendees have the opportunity to engage with experts and explore innovative solutions for environmental challenges.
