Sebastian d’Oleire-Oltmanns obtained a diploma in Landscape and Environmental Planning at the technical University in Berlin (Technische Universität Berlin). His research interests lie in the field of Remote Sensing and GIS. His diploma thesis focuses on the object-based image analysis of migrant housing in China.
Since 2010, Sebastian is a researcher and graduate student at Goethe Universitätin Frankfurt/Main. Current project work uses UAV and OBIA for landform detection and the monitoring of gully erosion development in agro-industrial areas in the Souss Basin, Morocco (DFG-funded). Sebastian has gained international working experience through the participation in different interdisciplinary projects in Italy, Austria, China, Morocco.
Since 2011 he is a member of the DK GIScience at Universität Salzburg.

PhD Thesis Topic:
Integrated multi-scale classification of gullies using OBIA on small-format aerial photographs and Quickbird data
The interest in and need for digital landform mapping is permanently growing, but still lacks fully developed transferable object-based classification approaches. This dissertation project aims on contributing to a) gully mapping on different scales and b) increased transferability of the developed object-based classification approach. Two different scale levels for gully mapping (1) small-format aerial photographs and (2) Quickbird satellite data were chosen. The aerial photographs were acquired during several field campaigns in the study area around the city of Taroudannt, Souss-Massa-Drâa, Morocco. For the survey campaign a fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicle was used. Stepwise investigation of the optical input data containing properties suited for the delineation of landforms independent from chosen study sites may lead to a robust and transferable segmentation and subsequent to a classification approach.
