Sponsored workshop on remote sensing and biodiversity monitoring

On February 05-07, 2018, the Swiss Future Earth Global Research Projects GMBA, GLP, and bioDISCOVERY and the ESA sponsored GlobDiversity project brought together 40 international experts to discuss the present and future of remote sensing in biodiversity monitoring and species distribution models. After an afternoon of very well attended guest lectures, participants spent 2 days discussing how remote sensing can and could inform species distribution models, and exploring data from different mountain systems around the world. This event, which was an activity of the GMBA working group on species distribution models and remote sensing, was hosted by the University of Zurich and sponsored by the European Space Agency, Future Earth, and the Swiss National Science Foundation.
