Habitat loss through settlement expansion and intensification of agriculture is becoming a major threat for many animal species. The populations of least weasels, ermine, polecats and pine martens in the Central Swiss Plateau are, according to uniform assessments by experts, understood to be in decline. In addition ...
Erosion in Alpine Areas
The protection of Alpine Soils is of great importance and closely linked to suitable farming strategies. The Guidelines for environmental protection in agriculture provide detailed reference for surveying, controlling and preventing erosion on alpine surfaces. In this research project, an ArcGIS® Toolbox was ...
GINES is a spatio-temporal decision-support system for planning applications. The software emerged a research project of the geoinformatics research unit that spun off in 2015 into an independent software company. In this this collaborative research project between the geoinformatics research unit and GINES GmbH, ...
Wind energy potential in close proximity to the rail network of the Swiss Federal Railways SBB
The wind energy potential in close proximity to the railway network of the Swiss Federal Railways SBB is analyzed and quantified with reference to the vertical turbines A32, A45 and A64 of the Vertical Sky series (Agile Windpower AG). Wind conditions, topographical restrictions and an extensive list of criteria ...
Global site assessment for hazelnut production
Currently, 64% of the world's hazelnut production comes from Turkey. A further 13% is produced in Italy. This concentration on a small number of countries poses a risk for the long-term safeguarding of the hazelnut supply. In order to ensure the procurement of hazelnuts in the long term, hazelnut production must be ...
Spatio-temporal databases (st-DB)
The overarching goal of this project is the build-up of expertise in designing and maintaining spatio-temporal databases in the context of data-driven ecological monitoring (software, hardware). The specific goals of the study are Case studies. Design and implementation of spatio-temporal databases in the ...
Formation and future evolution of glacier lakes in Austria (FUTURELAKES)
Glacier retreat is one of the most visible consequences of climate change and models suggest that temperature increase of 3°C in Austria will lead to glacier extents less than 20% of today's extent within the next century. Information on future changes of the high alpine landscape is currently not available for the ...
The Institute for Environment and Natural Resources (IUNR) has developed a tool for the efficiently and strategically planning of production and procurement in the agricultural market. It assesses the suitability of sites worldwide for specific agricultural products on the basis of geographic information on climate ...
Scenario Visualization in Spatial Planning II
Scenarios of future periurban landscape development were modelled within the WSL research program "Spatial Requirements of Man and Nature" (Price et al., 2015). The spatial representation of the scenarios corresponds to the field-based conceptual data model, storing single values in continuous raster data ...
Close-range & low-cost Remote Sensing for the Environmental Sciences
In the context of climate change, changing environmental conditions and increasing as well as conflicting demands on land use, environmental monitoring is of great importance at a variety of spatial and temporal scales. The main objective of this project is the development of a Remote Sensing Monitoring Competence ...
