Remote Sensing Researcher

27.09.2017 - Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences, KU Leuven, Belgium

The Division Forest, Nature & Landscape and the Spatial Applications Division Leuven (SADL) of the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences of KU Leuven are looking for a research associate to develop a spatially-explicit reference garden map for Flanders based on remote sensing data.

This work will be executed within the frame of a recently accepted STEREO BELSPO project. Garden information will be derived from orthophotos, airborne LiDAR data and available satellite imagery. Specific attention will be on exploring the added value of Pleiades and Sentinel2 satellite imagery using sub-pixel and object-based classification techniques. The integrated use of aerial and satellite observations will be developed in a proof-of-concept study at a case city scale (i.e. Leuven) and later on upscaled to the rest of Flanders. The work will be performed in close collaboration with the Informatie Vlaanderen Agency and the Environment, Nature and Energy Department of the Flemish Government.
