Bridging GIS, landscape ecology, and remote sensing for landscape planning



Different natural environmental components such as climate, air, soil, water, and relief are intertwined with socio-economic factors contributing to risks, environmental degradation and human security problems. Hence, recognition, interpretation and spatially explicit mapping the variability of processes, functions and landscape conditions are imperative for assessing landscapes for future developments.
Students participating in the IP learn to look at landscapes from different disciplinary perspectives and apply sophisticated earth observation techniques for land use / land cover analysis. Hands-on sessions provide them with necessary skills to develop reliable models for a quantitative and qualitative scenario output of achievable futures.
Target groups are postgraduate and doctoral students from the partner institutions in the fields of natural and social sciences dealing with spatial planning.
With the skills gained in the Summer School, participants will return to their home country contributing to the dissemination of advanced knowledge and technical capabilities advocating the use of sound policy decisions based on concepts, approaches, theories and methods in the domains of GI-Science and Remote Sensing.

The ERASMUS Intensive Programme 'Bridging GIS, Landscape Ecology and Remote Sensing' (GISLERS) for sustainable developments of landscapes focuses on analyses and assessments of landscapes.
