|Organisation Description||The Remote Sensing Division of the Department of Geography of the University of Zurich is engaged in practically all aspects of modern geographical data handling by integrating remote sensing with GIS, DEM, Computer Graphics, as well as basic research such as geometric and radiometric sensor calibration, simulation and modeling techniques.
The main research and application activities are being carried through the following four laboratories:
Main emphasis has always been placed on the multitemporal aspects, on monitoring seasonal and long-term changes, combining remote sensing with auxillary data sources.
The division is also involved into remote sensing technology transfer to third world countries and is assisting in the related teaching courses in methodology development for environmental studies.
In addition to teaching and research activities, RSL is part of the Swiss National Point of Contact (NPOC), the national information, distribution and archive center for satellite images. The duties of the NPOC are carried out in close cooperation with the Federal Office of Topography (swisstopo).
