Data management and spatial data analysis

Research areas: Remote Sensing, Geoinformatics, Geography, Computer Sciences

Principal investigators: Prof. Dr. Georg Bareth, Prof. Dr. Olaf Bubenzer

According to the DFG guidelines and the necessity of collaborative work in the entire project, (i) a central research data management system will be established based on an already working implementation, the CRC/TR32 project database. This database is capable of sharing and archiving large research data, allows accurate data description by a standardized, interoperable, modifiable metadata schema and enables to derive digital object identifier (DOIs) for datasets.

All central geodata of the CRC will be available in a WebGIS. The data of the weather stations (Z03) will be implemented by recent standards. Training and support for data handling and exchange will be provided throughout the project phase. A further task (ii) of Z02 will be the analysis of spatial data for the specific transects of the CRC. Available remote sensing data (e.g. Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer Global Digital Elevation Map (ASTERGDEM), SRTM, Landsat 8, Hyperion, ASTER MS) will be used for landform and landcover mapping. In addition, high resolution optical satellite imagery (e.g. WorldView-2/3) will be purchased for the detection of vegetation. Suitable ground truth data will be collected in joined field campaigns with Z03 by RTK-GPS transects, terrestrial laser scanning, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-based multi- and hyperspectral imaging as well as field-portable spectroradiometric measurements.
