Objectives

In 2001, ZFL was established as an interdisciplinary research and teaching center for remote sensing at the University of Bonn. Scientists and students from different faculties get the opportunity to use a highly sophisticated and well equipped remote sensing laboratory for their research activities. ZFL staff offers advise concerning general remote sensing questions and assists in solving complex problems. Due to the centralization of the remote sensing facilities of several institutions a high degree of scientific exchange is guaranteed. ZFL supports several research projects and organizes a teaching program in the field of remote sensing.

Tasks

ZFL staff maintains the computing facilities of the center, including necessary hard- and software upgrades. Moreover, they can be contacted by the project scientists in case of technical and scientific difficulties. Introductions to remote sensing are given in theoretical and practical classes. Advanced courses, workshops and lectures referring to specific topics of remote sensing are organized regularly. Additionally, ZFL staff conducts own research projects in various subjects and locations financed by external funding organizations.
