Panel Systems and Missions - The object and the mission
Prof. Dr. Bodo Bookhagen has been working with remotely sensed data and point clouds for 20 years. After studying computer science and geosciences with a final PhD (2005), he has worked as a research associate and postdoctoral researcher at the University of California Berkeley, Stanford, and the University of California Santa Barbara. From 2007-2014, he was a (tenured) professor at UC Santa Barbara, conducting research and teaching in remote sensing and Earth surface processes with NSF and NASA projects. Since 2015, he has been head of the Department of Geological Remote Sensing at the University of Potsdam. There he conducts several research projects with strong relation to remote sensing aspects in the Central Andes (NW Argentina), Himalaya (India and Nepal), Namibia, but also in Germany. He focuses on data analysis in complex landscapes and the fusion of digital field measurements and satellite observations.
Bodo Bookhagen has established the international MSc program 'Remote Sensing, geoInformation, and Visualization' at the University of Potsdam, which is one of the most successful programs in the field of earth and environmental sciences with more than 400 applicants per year. An important part of the education is the handling of airborne imagery (UAV, aircraft), but also satellite data and their data analysis.
