Within the HLRN we are a competence center regarding remote sensing-based forest monitoring. We work on forestry topics using remote sensing techniques that require HPC systems. In particular, we focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning approaches. For example, one of our current projects is ForestCare. In this project we use hyperspectral and lidar data combined with convolutional neural networks to assess the vitality of trees and automate species classification. Overmore, we plan to give interactive tutorials for the remote sensing and forestry community.
Our overall interest can be summarized as providing services for:
If your forestry use case that could use HPC resources is not on the list, we would be happy if you wrote us an email.
