TMIS.ascrea - Automatic Selection, Categorization and Recognition of Areomorphic Features

The project focused on an automated areomorphic (i.e. Mars-related morphological) analysis based on DTM data. Automation has become inevitable due to the large amount of available data.

TMIS.morph - Areomorphological Analysis of Data from HRSC on Mars Express

TMIS.morph, a project in the sequence of TMIS (Topographic Mars Information System) projects, was the Austrian contribution to the international collaboration of “HRSC (High Resolution Stereo Camera) on MEX”, lead by Professor Gerhard Neukum (FU Berlin). The TMIS projects, beside providing a solid data management background of the huge datasets of the HRSC imagery and the derivative digital terrain models (DTMs) for the scientific research team, aimed at unconventional visualization, evaluation and automated extraction of selected Martian topographic features.

Austria in Space - Maintenance and Extension of the Topographic Mars Information System (TMIS) and Processing and Analysis of Terrain Information from Mars Derived from HRSC Imagery

TMIS has recently been re-implemented and contains data covering some three quarters of the planet's surface. Besides maintaining the data catalogue, I.P.F. also uses the Mars DTM data for research activities in DTM analysis. In the course of the current project the focus is on areomorphologic analysis, in particular on generating highly informative visualisations.

VEX-MAG - Venus Express Magnetometer

Venus Express (VEX) is the first mission of the European Space Agency (ESA) to Venus. It aims at a global investigation of the Venusian atmosphere and plasma environment and addresses several important aspects of the geology and surface physics. Its payload comprises seven scientific instruments with heritage from Mars Express and Rosetta. VEX-MAG is a space qualified magnetometer with two sensors to measure the magnetic field magnitude and direction.

e_SPIDER - Conceptualization of a Global Virtual Academy for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response

e_SPIDER directly supports the initialization of an e-learning environment for UN-SPIDER by providing a conceptual frame-work for a Global Virtual Academy for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response. It contributes to the development of an appropriate curriculum in collaboration with the Regional Centres for Space Science and Technology Education, affiliated to the United Nations, and other national and regional centres of excellence to train end-users and strengthen national institutions.
