The use of layered architectures for modeling autonomous agents has become popular over the past few years. In this paper, different approaches how these architectures can be build are discussed. A special case, namely vertically layered architectures is discussed by the example of the INTERRAP agent model. The paper focusses on the lower levels of the(More)
Crop mapping in West Africa is challenging, due to the unavailability of adequate satellite images (as a result of excessive cloud cover), small agricultural fields and a heterogeneous landscape. To address this challenge, we integrated high spatial resolution multi-temporal optical (RapidEye) and dual polarized (VV/VH) SAR (TerraSAR-X) data to map crops(More)
Due to its various negative consequences impervious surface is increasingly recognized as a key issue in assessing the sustainability of land use – particularly in urban environments. In Germany, a regional or statewide method for an accurate, fast and cost-effective quantification and assessment of impervious surfaces is still missing. Thus, we researched(More)
