Derivation of hiking/trekking maps (high mountains) from high resolution optical remote sensing data.

Short Description

Through high-resolution Pléiades satellite data the project seeks to derivate a detailed topographic map from both alpine and non-alpine areas. Non-derivable map information will be investigated through field studies. Subsequently, the OeAV will print and distribute the maps. The application of the specific method will be validated. The project supports aspects of gender and promotes tourism in the area of Mt. Kenya.
