Geospatial Analysis (ANAGEO)

Faculty of Sciences | IGEAT - Institute for Geography, Environment and Land planning

(Code: ULB568)

Person in charge of the unit : WOLFF Eléonore.

ANAGEO (Research Group in Geospatial Analysis) is led by Prof. Eléonore Wolff and part of the Institute for Environmental Management and Land-use Planning
(IGEAT), Department of Geosciences, Environment and Society, Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB).

ANAGEO carries out research in the field of
man-environment interaction, with a special focus on the study of land use/land cover, its evolution and its determinants, using remote sensing and geospatial
analysis. The group has a strong background in deriving geoinformation from satellite and airborne remote sensing imagery - notably through extensive expertise
in GIS-based modelling and Object-Based Image Analysis (OBIA) for large-scaled applications entailing big data management. More recently, the group
started working and developing deep Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) for different remote sensing applications. It has been involved in several
pluri-disciplinary international projects as coordinator or WP leader.

The research topics that are addressed by ANAGEO revolve mainly around the following themes:
monitoring of urban areas in space and time, land planning, natural resources management, population estimation, spatial epidemiology, and humanitarian
action (including Mine Action).

ANAGEO has a long experience in VHRRS and HRRS remote sensing and spatial analysis of urban areas in Europe and in developing
countries, more particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa.
