The focus of the professorship will be in global urbanization and risk research. Satellites generate such enormous amounts of measurement data that often only the most modern methods of data science can be used to evaluate them efficiently. The development of powerful algorithms for Big Data remote sensing analysis is central to this. Here, problem-specific information is obtained from the abundance of available data, which enables an assessment of the state and changes of the earth's surface. Besides the challenge of correctly interpreting the spatially and temporally distributed measurement data, dynamic aspects therefore also play an important role. At the same time, the great variety of different recording instruments offers an enormous potential for synergetic data evaluation, which leads to new geographical, spatial scientific findings. Only through the appropriate technical and thematic processing of the data can the desired spatial information be obtained. The information content of the statements obtained is further enhanced by the integration of further statistical, demographic, social science or engineering data.
The professorship will be filled in cooperation with the DLR (German Aerospace Center).
