Learning to understand the earth – Using modern satellite image technology for earth observation for adolescents (Space4Geography)

(2014 – 2016)

This is a DLR funded project granted to Prof. Dr. Alexander Siegmund (2013-2017).

The project aimed at developing an adaptive learning platform with 10 modules, in which students can learn to answer geographic questions with the help of remote sensing. The platform (see screenshot above) uses RapidEye and TerraSar-X images as well as the web-based software BLIF. The project is accompanied by research.

I started with consulting within the project in 2014. From 2015 to 2016, I was involved with working on developing one of the learning modules within the project, which deals with the topic ‘Tsunamis’. This has then been taken over by the core project team and re-designed.
