New Perspectives on Earth Observation – 4th Symposium on Applied Satellite Earth Observation

“Whoever understands the changes in forest also understands the changes in climate. Satellite images + in-situ data in WaldCursor allow to do so” – Under this heading, Ralph Humberg, CEO Tama Group, shows on June 26 how the combination and analysis of satellite and in-situ data in WaldCursor, the forest- and  environment portal of Tama Group, can be used in a targeted manner both for science and in practice forest and environmental sector.

Remote Sensing for Environmental Applications

Starting with 2023 Remote Sensing for Environmental Applications will be a new  focus in our three product lines.

  • eCognition Distribution & Services
  • WaldCursror – The Portal for Forestry & Environment
  • Information Factories

Remote sensing is already providing significant input into understanding environmental problems and modeling developments.

In 2023 Tama Group will use a series of technical webinars, events and information to emphasize the potential of Remote Sensing for Environmental Applications for environmental issues.

Tama Group eCognition User Conference 2022 – 29. Juni 2022 in Gräfelfing, Munich

In remote sensing, too, the ‘cloud’ is increasingly becoming the central location for storing and processing geodata. We want to shed light on this topic in this year’s User Conference in connection with eCognition. We approach our topic “eCogntion – Up to the Cloud?” with keynote speeches from three different perspectives. We continue with an international panel to discuss methods and applications. Here, too, we cover a wide range and show examples of eCognition use.

We look forward to you discussing all these exiting topics with us. There will be a mix of presentations in german and english language.

Participation in our eCognition User Conference is free of charge. If personal participation is not possible, we also offer the possibility to participate live via video conference. For more information and registration click here.
