EGU Conference 2023
Recently we had the opportunity to attend the European Geosciences Union (EGU) conference in Vienna. It was an enriching experience where we had the privilege of delivering our oral presentations on two distinct topics, “Comparison of land surface temperatures from Landsat with soil freeze-thaw measurements in permafrost peatlands” in a session on remote sensing of cold regions and “Determination of anthropologically induced deformation along the Kenyan Rift system using Multitemporal InSAR analysis with Sentinel-1 data” in a session on SAR remote sensing for natural and human-induced hazard applications. Presenting our research to a diverse audience of fellow researchers, professionals, and experts in the field was an invaluable opportunity to share our insights, engage in fruitful discussions, and receive valuable feedback. The EGU conference provided an exceptional platform for knowledge exchange and networking, enabling us to forge new collaborations and deepen our understanding of the latest advancements in the geosciences field. It was a memorable experience that further fuelled our passion for scientific exploration and discovery.

DVW UAV Seminar „UAV 2023 – Geodaten nach Maß“ was a success!
The IGP has been active in drone-based photogrammetry for many years. In many completed and ongoing projects, we have demonstrated and further developed the potential that arises from the use of this technology. Because of this experience we organized a UAV seminar in Braunschweig together with colleagues from DVW e.V. and DGPF e.V. This seminar was aimed at participants from the field and took place as part of a DVW seminar series.
Thus, 180 interested colleagues from practice and science met on our campus to learn about current developments regarding systems, software, requirements and legal framework conditions of UAV-based data acquisition and evaluation over two days. In the thematic block "Sensors and Platforms", developments on the drone market as well as current camera systems were highlighted. Drone-based laser scanning, which is well established in practice, was addressed as well as innovative, customized hardware solutions. In the "Innovative Evaluation" session, experts reported on data processing in various contexts, for example in the government sector and with regard to automatic evaluation (see picture gallery).
The third and fourth sessions were devoted to the topic of regulation and flight approval procedures with a concluding panel discussion. It became clear that many questions remain unanswered in current flight clearances practice. For the first time, the workshop "Software Products for Typical Tasks in UAV Image Data Processing" was held on two half days prior to the seminar. Participants gained an overview of the functional scope of the products most commonly used in geodetic practice. We are also pleased to announce that the participants of the conference donated more than 1.400€ for the mission of "Médecins Sans Frontières" in the earthquake disaster areas in Northern Syria.
As of now, the conference proceedings "UAV 2023" can be downloaded free of charge as a PDF

217. DVW-Seminar & Workshop "UAV 2023 - Geodaten nach Maß"
23. und 24. February 2023
22. und 23. Feburary 2023 (workshop optional)
Today, the use of UAV-based data acquisition and analysis is an almost daily business for many professional users from geodesy and photogrammetry, and geoinformation in general. However, more than with other technologies, systems, software, requirements and legal frameworks are subject to constant change. In this environment, it is therefore essential to constantly deal with the current status quo. This includes questions about current regulations and flight approval procedures, information about modern platforms and sensors, and innovative processes for practical applications. Renowned speakers will provide a comprehensive overview of the current state of UAV systems in many facets and will be available to answer questions from interested participants.
NEW: Workshop before the seminar
On the day before the seminar, for the first time, there will be an opportunity to learn about the functional scope of the products most commonly used in geodetic practice in a workshop entitled "Software Products for Typical Tasks in UAV Image Data Processing".

GeoMonitoring requires the combination of observation methods and process modeling. This is essential for the reduction of geohazards. The conference series "GeoMonitoring" focuses on the monitoring of geometric changes of natural and man-made objects in the human-influenced system Earth. The interdisciplinary conference "GeoMonitoring" presents measurement methods from geodesy, geotechnics and geophysics as well as from related sciences. For the integration of their results and for the description of the complex behavior of geoobjects, relevant and applicable modeling approaches are presented. The conference series is organized by the Institute of Geodesy and Photogrammetry of the TU Braunschweig, the Institute of Geotechnics and Mine Surveying of the TU Clausthal and the Geodetic Institute of the Leibniz Universität Hannover.
