Can ISO-Defined Urban Sustainability Indicators Be Derived from Remote Sensing: An Expert Weighting Approach

Hi all,

I’d like to point out a study conducted by colleagues from the Austrian Institute of Technology, the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna and the University of Salzburg. In this study, we have analysed indicators for the sustainable development of cities that have the greatest potential for their underlying data to be measured by means of remote sensing.

The open-acces paper, which was published in the journal sustainability, is freely available at:

Best regards,

About This Author

Matthias studied Environmental Information Management at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna and holds a PhD in environmental statistics. The focus of his thesis was on the statistical modelling of rare (extreme) events as a basis for vulnerability assessment of critical infrastructure. He is working at the Austrian national weather and geophysical service (ZAMG) and at the Institute of Mountain Risk Engineering at BOKU University. He currently focuses the (statistical) assessment of adverse weather events and natural hazards, and disaster risk reduction. His main interests are statistical modelling of environmental phenomena as well as open source tools for data science, geoinformation and remote sensing.
