University Würzburg featured our UAS city data collection

January 20, 2023

We are happy that the press department of our university featured our city flight mission from last year. We acquired Lidar and multispectral as well as thermal data of the city forest and urban areas around the main University Würzburg building. The data mission was done by our PhD students Antonio Castaneda and Jakob Schwalb-Willmann and coordinated by Dr. Mirjana Bevanda with the help of many colleagues. The data is now used for explorative analysis of very high resolution remote sensing data for urban studies and was a test how to fly UAS within cities including all the legal challenges. We are very optimistic that this will not be the last city mission and by far not the smallest. Looking forward to further UAS earth observation in 2023 – from cities to forest, from agriculture to protected areas and up to mountainous regions.
