Welcome to the EAGLE students' webpage!

 

This is the offical EAGLE students’ webpage. Here you can find useful information on the EAGLE graduate program (M.Sc.) offered by the University of Würzburg and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), directly provided by its students.

Impressions from the EAGLE students’ participation in the 2019 Geo Summer Party’s Dodgeball Competition

Impressions from the EAGLE students’ participation in the 2019 Geo Summer Party’s Dodgeball Competition

Instead of hosting a football competition as it always had been for the last years, the Geo Summer Party 2019 Planning Committee instead decided to introduce a new game: Dodgeball. As last year, EAGLE students formed a team representing the Department of Remote Sensing at the University of Würzburg and fought hard to survive the competition. Browse through the images below to get some impressions of the event 🙂

First EAGLE generation: Spreading its wings and taking off

First EAGLE generation: Spreading its wings and taking off

Since more and more EAGLEs of the 1st generation started to stretch their wings, it is time for one last recap. Over the last two and a half years, every one of us was quite busy learning new and exciting techniques and methods in the scientific field of remote sensing. We also were given the chance to expand our network and explore academic fields, which were not necessarily related to our previous occupations.

EAGLEs forming a football team at yesterday’s Geo summer party

Every year, many Geography students and some lecturers of the University of Wuerzburg meet at the center lawn of Campus Hubland for the annual Geography summer party, organized by the faculty’s Student Council. This year, as every year, one highlight was the football tournament, in which nine teams, all drafted explicitly for the event, competed against each other to win the “Mohorovičić Cup”.

A review of the first semester from a students’ representative perspective

At our first day in the EAGLE program we were given an introduction suggesting nearly endless possibilities for us the EAGLE students. Honestly speaking it was quite appealing, but it also resulted in high expectations regarding the program. So did the lecturers deliver accordingly? I would say that they did. We had an interesting semester packed with a lot of information, especially for those with no or a minor remote sensing background. Now everybody has a basic understanding of remote sensing and its methods. Furthermore, thanks to Martin Wegmann all the students are now capable of implementing it in a small R-code.

R package “MapBooklet” for an automatized creation of map booklets based on user ggplots

R package “MapBooklet” for an automatized creation of map booklets based on user ggplots

This R package was designed by EAGLE student Marius Philipp for the automatized generation of map booklet pdfs for user defined ggplots. The package contains currently two functions, one of which creates a fishnet polygon from the extent of the user input data. The second function uses these fishnet polygon in combination with a user ggplot for the creation of a map booklet, including an overview map, as well as a submap for each tile.

Python Script for QGIS 3.0 Basemaps

The OpenLayer Plugin for QGIS provided all my basemap layers for quite some time now. But since the eagerly awaited launch of QGIS 3.0 earlier this year this plugin became incompatible, leaving you with two options: you either gather and compile all XYZ Tiles...

R Package “superClassAnalysis”

For our final project in the course “MB2 – Introduction to Programming and Geostatistics” held by Dr. Martin Wegmann the students were encouraged to explore the possibilities for analyzing and working with remote sensing data in R. In this context I created a package...

Land-Use Change Coded By Color (R Package)

The remote sensing R package LCquickVieweR makes land-use change visible by creating false color images. The methodical approach is a combination of Image Differencing and Multi Temporal Stacking using NDVI. This way change is coded by color. All processing steps are...

Spectral unmixing in R

Spectral unmixing in R

In January 2018, I finished the development of the first version of a spectral unmixing function being part of RStoolbox, an R package offering numerous tools for remote sensing analysis written by Benjamin Leutner. The multiple endmember spectral mixture analysis (mesma) function makes it possible to unmix multi- and hyper-spectral imagery by sets of spectral endmember profiles.

Install every missing R package in one go

Before submitting a project or setting up R on a new system, this function might come in handy. You can put all your favourite or required packages into a single vector and check if they're already installed. If not, packageChecker() will take care of that....

Backslash Converter for R

Every now and then some of us have to work on a campus terminal. And most of the time you want to take the code and data with you. So you do what every student does - you hook up your own usb-drive and change work directories in RStudio. But as soon as you start...
