The Center for Remote Sensing of Land Surfaces (ZFL) is an interdisciplinary center of the University of Bonn dedicated to research and teaching in the fields of remote sensing, geoinformation sciences and spatial modelling. In a complementary fashion to their academic activities, ZFL staff offers advise concerning general remote sensing questions and assists in solving complex problems. Due to the centralization of the remote sensing facilities of several institutions, a high degree of scientific exchange is guaranteed. 

ZFL focuses on three key main topics:  risks, water and geomatics.  Advanced courses, workshops and lectures referring to specific topics of remote sensing are organized regularly. Additionally, ZFL staff conducts own research projects in various subjects and locations financed by external funding organizations.
