Division of Geography and Tourism KU Leuven
Within the Department of Geography and Tourism spatial patterns at the surface of the earth are studied and the dynamic interaction between the (bio-) physical environment and society takes a central place.
Cartography and Geographical Information Science Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Research activities in the Cartography and GIS Research Group (CGIS) mainly focus on land-use/land-cover mapping from remotely sensed data, with emphasis on urban areas, and on spatial analysis of urban dynamics. Special attention in the remote sensing work goes to the use of knowledge-based methods and machine learning approaches for image interpretation, relying on spectral, textural as well as contextual information. Remote sensing and ...

Crop Husbandry and Environment Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research
This research aims for yield improvement and high-quality, sustainable plant production with respect for people, animals and the environment. We optimize and evaluate (new) crop husbandry techniques (rotations, new crops, soil management, nutrients) and seed processing techniques. We develop sustainable soil management and organize official variety testing. Some interface exists between crop husbandry and environment/nature.
