Announcement of an EnMAP Special Issue in Remote Sensing

We are happy to announce the call for contributions in the EnMAP Special Issue to be published in Remote Sensing online journal. The website is now set up and the call for papers open. We are looking forward to receiving many interesting high quality contributions and to having a nice overview on EnMAP and many of the scientific achievements of the preparatory phase in one issue in 2015.

New Scientific Principal Investigator of the EnMAP mission

Prof. Hermann Kaufmann (GFZ) retires after a successful career as one of the world-wide leading experts in the field of hyperspectral remote sensing. He initiated the spaceborne hyperspectral satellite mission EnMAP and became the Scientific Principal Investigator of this long-term research and development program. Since October, 2014, Prof. Luis Guanter succeeds Prof. Hermann Kaufmann and takes up the position as the new Scientific Principal investigator.

EnMAP-Box 2.0 now available!

New EnMAP-Box features are:

  • a redesigned GUI with better visualization and an intuitive organisation of image and spectral views
  • a GIS-like labeling tool for defining ROIs (regions of interest) on images or SOIs (spectra of interest) on spectral libraries
  • import/export filters to shapefile and ENVI format for labeling tool
  • spectral view for simulatenous collection and visualization of spectra with diverse wavelengths settings
  • fast visualization of spatially large images through optional calculation of pyramid layers
