Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe (CHRSE)

About the CHRSE

CHRSE-Logo_wHWGK-370x250pxThe Center for Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Europe was formed in late 2019 by Headwall and geo-konzept to support the implementation and utilization of hyperspectral imaging technology with other sensor technology focusing on agriculture, mining, environmental monitoring and infrastructure inspection applications.

An in-person workshop for remote-sensing users, enthusiasts, and experts who are interested in learning more effective ways to perform hyperspectral surveys or developing new applications  took place at our facility in Adelschlag, Germany on Wednesday, 8 September and Thursday, 9 September 2021. This event followed all appropriate health & safety protocols, so the total number of attendees was limited. Agenda for the 2021 Workshop (.pdf)


UPDATE: two of the sessions at the workshop where webcast to allow those not able to travel to see some of the indoor content. You may register to see recordings of one or both using the links below.

  • Webcast Session 1: Wed, 8 Sep, Planning a UAV Hyperspectral Mission
  • Webcast Session 2: Thu, 9 Sep, Hyperspectral data post-processing, including preparing a LiDAR Point Cloud and DEM, conversion to radiance / reflectance, and orthorectification

The Center's formal in-person opening was postponed due to the global pandemic. Nevertheless, everyone was able to view and engage with a tremendously successful virtual workshop, held in November 2020. Workshop sessions were broken into Virtual Room 1 and Virtual Room 2.




What's Happening

  • In-Person Workshop 2021

    Our first in-person workshop happened on Wed, Sep 8 and Thu, Sep 9, 2021. To follow health & safety protocols, the number of participants was limited, so 2 sessions were webcast. You can register to see one or both: Webcast Session 1: Wed, 8 Sep, Planning a UAV Hyperspectral Mission; Webcast Session 2: Thu, 9 Sep, Hyperspectral data post-processing, including preparing a LiDAR Point Cloud and DEM, conversion to radiance / reflectance, and orthorectification.

  • Autumn Virtual Workshop 2021
    Due to the cancellation of the in-person Workshop, we are thrilled to be able to offer these engaging sessions for on demand viewing.
  • Video of Webinar: HSI Flights Over Vineyards

    Introduction to how Headwall's unmanned airborne solutions can monitor precious agricultural resources. See the recording!

  • Video of Webinar: Bringing HSI to Experimental Fields

    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.

  • Video of Webinar: Veg Enchroachment

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

  • Postponed the Opening On-Site Workshop

    Our inaugural workshop at the Center, originally scheduled for March 5-6, 2020, 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.

  • EE Times Article

    Recent article in EE Times on precision agriculture that features the Center, as well as quotes from Johannes Kutschera, head of Mining, Remote Sensing Department for Geo-Konzept, and Christian Felsheim, European Area Business Director for Headwall.
