German Aerospace Center - Earth Observation Center

The Earth Observation Center (EOC) - that consists of the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) and the Remote Sensing Technology Institute (IMF) - is the core institute of DLR’s earth observation activities.

The German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) is engaged in research, product development and providing services based on earth observation data from aircraft and satellite platforms. Results of this work support geo-scientific and environmental research and applications as well as commercial customers and civil security needs. Research projects focus on developing methodologies for generating customized data products as well as on the assimilation of data in models. The major fields of application are land use, the environment, civil security, climate and atmosphere, and geographic information systems.

EOMAP GmbH & Co.KG bridges the gap from earth observation data to standardized map products.

Multispectral space- and airborne sensor products and integrated software solutions comprise EOMAP’s core business. We equip data providers with operational product processors for satellites and offer large-area mapping with satellite and airborne sensors. EOMAP’s services can be integrated with environmental monitoring, general areal explorations, and the scientific development of the latest earth observation techniques, in particular for coastal zones, inland waters, wetlands, and other areas where area wide mapping is required.

Our software processors can deliver standardized products such as suspended matter, phytoplankton, and dissolved organic material from both deep inland and coastal waters. Precise bathymetric charts and sea floor vegetation distributions can be generated for optically shallow waters.

GFZ - German Research Center for Geoscience

The German Research Center for Geoscience (GFZ), Germany´s National Research Centre for Geosciences, hosts and facilitates large scale research in Geoscience, ranging from earth observing satellite missions over physics and chemistry of the earth to Geoengineering (

The Section 5.4 Hydrology of the GFZ is specialized on flood risk research including the development of new strategies for probabilistic flood risk assessment, flood hydraulics, and the development of innovative flood damage assessment methods. Another focus is large scale (global) hydrological modelling and the assimilation of global earth observing data, e.g. GRACE gravimetric data, into the models as well as in-situ measurements, including geophysical methods, of hydrological variables.

LU-FI - Ludwig-Franzius-Institute for Hydraulic, Waterways and Coastal Engineering

Established in 1916, the Ludwig-Franzius-Institute for Hydraulic, Waterways and Coastal Engineering, is a long-tradition research institution at the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University of Hanover/Germany and a nationally and internationally well-known partner for scientific and industrial investigations with main research fields in hydraulics, coastal, offshore and river engineering and flood risk management.

Regarding physical modeling of hydraulic questions, numerous, partly worldwide unique experimental facilities are available at FI. In addition to those classical model test facilities, computer-based modeling by use of numerical techniques has become increasingly important today and is therefore in the focus of current research activities. Through linkage of both techniques, highly complex tasks can be handled and resolved in an engineering context.

University of Wurzburg

The Department of Remote Sensing is funded by the German Aerospace Centre (DLR). All activities are based on a strong cooperation with the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) of DLR. Education and research are realized within a growing network including academic and other research organizations. Besides teaching at Wuerzburg University (Diploma and B.Sc. degrees) the department contributes to the M.Sc. studies Global Change Ecology at the University of Bayreuth with several remote sensing courses.

Method developments and applications mainly concentrate on land cover, calibration and modeling. These method developments and applications are covered in the context of the thematic topics Biodiversity and Land Use, Land Surface Dynamics and Resource Management, Remote Sensing of Urban Areas and Crisis Information Systems.
