About the Author

Dr. Ioannis Manakos is a Researcher in 'Remote Sensing' at the Information Technologies Institute, Centre for Research and Technology Hellas, an Adjunct Professor at the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies, where he headed the Department of the Geoinformation in Environmental Management for 7 years, cooperates with the Group on Earth Observations for the Global Land Cover Task, and is currently serving as the Chairman of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories. During his studies he specialized in spectroradiometric measurements and reflectance modeling (PhD at the Technical University of Munich), and satellite image and geospatial data analysis (MSc and Diploma at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) for applications related with Agriculture, Environment and Physical Geography. He has been coordinating or participating in numerous EU, bilateral, and national projects (FPs, INTERREGs, etc.) for more than a decade. Activity topics concerned Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES), Space and Airborne Remote Sensing and its Complementation and Synergy with in-situ measurements, Environmental Resources Management, Soil Erosion Risk Assessment, Agricultural Practice Monitoring, Precision Agriculture, Regional and Rural Development, Management of Mediterranean Ecosystems, Biodiversity, and Tourism. Numerous articles and studies of his have been published in Journals, Books, and Workshops.Matthias Braun has studied at the University of Freiburg (PhD) and the University of Bonn. He is Chairman of the EARSeL special interest group on remote sensing of land use and land cover, as well as scientific Co-editor of EARSeL eProceedings. He is currently Associate Professor at the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska Fairbanks.
