EnMap-BMP is a joined research project with Prof. Dr. T. Udelhoven, University of Trier. The project aims on the development of methods to map and quantify the biomethane potential of crops. The sub-project deals with the development of adequate classification and regression strategies for an enhanced mapping of energy crops and retrieval of biophysical parameters by combining SAR and hyperspectral images. The specific aims of the projects are (i) development of a one-class-classifier (OCC) for mapping energy crops, (ii) adaption of recent regression methods (e.g., support vector regressions) and further development of ensemble based regression methods, and (iii) development of innovative concepts for sensor fusion to estimation biophysical parameters with higher accuracy.
