Z_GIS participated in the conference “Satellite Applications for the Alps” which took place in Berchtesgaden on 27th October 2016 and was organized by EURISY and WFG Berchtesgadener Land.
The conference is part of a biannual series and dealt with different applications derived from or based on satellite communication and data with a special focus on the Alps. Participants from all over Europe (Norway, Denmark, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Slovenia and more) attended the conference and fostered the interactive exchange between providers, users and experts.
Florian Albrecht acted as expert for environmental monitoring for landslide detection and protection and represented the Land@Slide project currently being carried out at Z_GIS. Sebastian d’Oleire-Oltmanns took over as a moderator to lead a session on Connectivity, Tourist activities, Natural habitats and biodiversity monitoring and preservation. The conference provided a good opportunity to foster Z_GIS’ long term engagement and support of the Copernicus program as well as its user uptake initiatives.
