Using a Multispectral Array with MATLAB, Part 2

Using the MAPIR Survey2 cameras described in an earlier post I took photos of the car park next to our departmental building. The relatively inexpensive multispectral array consists of four cameras, ~340 € each, recording NDVI Red+NIR (650 and 850 nm), Blue (450 nm), Green (550 nm) and Visible Light RGB (~370–650 nm). We use the four cameras to build a multispectral array, possibly mounted on drones, to determine various types of minerals, vegetation, and man-made materials on the ground.

Summer School 2018 on Earth Surface Dynamics, Part 2

The summer school entitled Earth Surface Dynamics – Understanding Processes at the Earth’s Vulnerable Skin” is the fourth summer school I am organizing together with the VolkswagenFoundation. The summer schools in the field of geo-biosciences in East Africa include the disciplines of paleoclimatology, paleontology, paleoanthropology, evolutionary biology, structural geology, and geophysics. I teach these summer schools together with colleagues from Addis Ababa University and the University of Nairobi, as well with many colleagues from other universities.
