Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe (CHRSE)

About the CHRSE

The Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe was formed in late 2019 by Headwall & geo-konzept to support the implementation and utilization of hyperspectral imaging technology combined with other sensor technology such as LiDAR and high-precision GPS focusing on agriculture, mining, environmental monitoring and infrastructure inspection applications.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: the Center's formal opening and on-site workshop, originally scheduled for Thursday, 5 March 2019 to Friday, 6 March 20, has been postponed due to the most recent developments with the coronavirus (COVID-19)and the recommendation of local health authorities. We will provide updates on this page regarding a future date and whether we will be able to host an online event. We wish that everyone stays healthy and this situation improves very soon.

Here is a letter if your travel company requests it.


Our Vision

Short- & Long-Term Goals

Remote sensing and hyperspectral imaging have existed for decades. There are many examples of their usefulness together, but the next evolutionary step is the development of application-relevant solutions on more intuitive platforms. With this in mind, the CHRSE brings multi-modal hardware, software, and application expertise together.

The Facility

More Than Just an Idea

The facility is located a short distance from Munich, Germany, and features:

  • Large outdoor areas safe for drone flights
  • Available, certified UAV pilots
  • Indoor meeting areas
  • On-location staff and resources for demo, training, and application development


What's Happening


Our inaugural workshop at the Center, originally scheduled for Thursday, 5 March to Friday, 6 March 2019, has been postponed indefinitely due to recent developments involving the coronavirus (COVID-19). Here is a letter if your travel company would like proof of our event cancellation.

With the advent of commercial packages that are more intuitive and robust for use in the lab, in the greenhouse, in the field, and from the air, HSI can be used for classification purposes or as input values for machine-learning approaches. Advanced data-analysis tools such as MiniGIS allow the visualization of hyperspectral data, provide an opportunity for statistical, parcel-specific data analysis, and enable the user to create individual, trait-specific indices. See the recording! Questions and Answers coming shortly, too.

Watch the recording of our webinar Detecting Vegetation Encroachment on Infrastructure with Hyperspectral Imaging & LiDAR. Questions & Answers available, too!
