The Laboratory for Image Understanding and Earth Observation Sensors (LIMES) was established for research, lectures, trainings and workshops in the fields of automatic interpretation and measuring in aerial photos, satellite- and close-range images. The laboratory equipment is one of the leading ones at German universities and is installed in two rooms.
Both rooms are used for a large number of exercises in the Bachelor study programmes „Vermessung und Geoinformatik“ (Surveying and Geoinformatics) and „Informationslogistik“ (Informationlogistics) as well as for the Master programme "Photogrammetry and Geoinformatics". In numerous Bachelor- and Master-Theses the laboratory is used for research and development.
In the laboratory there are all in all 18 PCs available, ten with 660 GB hard disks, four with 300 GB hard disks, and four with 80 GB and 200 GB hard disks. 11 workstations offer stereo capabilities, four of them with modern stereo planar systems. Each workstation includes 2 19'' TFT Screens.
A CUBE 3D Stereobeamer (Digital Image Company) with a fixed screen in room 2/222 and a portable screen can be used for every kind of 3D visualisations and 3D presentations. Viewing is possible with polarised glasses in passive mode.
With an available Whiteboard exercises, lectures and meetings
can be supported as well with a tablet PC.
Additional 2 laserprinters and 5 external USB hard disks with 250-300 GB capacity and 4 USB2 hard disks with 1000 GB capacity are available for data storage and transfer.
For photogrammetric applications nine digital photogrammetric software packages of the INPHO GmbH are available. Following applications are licensed:
For close-range photogrammetry in industrial, architectural or archeological applications the following software packages are available:
For remote sensing following software packages are available:
For capturing photogrammetric photos a digital DSLR-camera and two panoramic heads are available. The camera is equipped with different lenses and several calibration frames are available for various applications.
An unmanned aerial vehicle called UAV PAMS is available for research and thesis work.
