What: Innsbruck Summer School of Alpine Research – Close Range Sensing Techniques in Alpine Terrain.
Where: Obergurgl, Austria
When: 16 – 22 July, 2017
Who: Sophie Crommelinck, University of Twente, Netherlands
Why: International summer school on innovative practical and methodological approaches to characterize complex terrain and objects using close-, near range and remote sensing techniques.
The objective is to enlarge knowledge about feature extraction methods and to network with other (PhD) researchers working with similar sensors and methods.
The main goal of the summer school was to provide participants with innovative practical and methodological skills to characterise complex terrain and objects using close-, near range and remote sensing techniques. A variety of sensor systems was available for data acquisition in the high mountain surroundings of the summer school venue, including terrestrial laser scanners, unmanned aerial vehicles and spectral cameras. Thematic focus was on mountain research, and included vegetation mapping, monitoring and deformation analysis for glaciology, geomorphology and natural hazard research.
