Botany and Molecular Evolution, Frankfurt/Main

Biodiversity in Frankfurt  

Support us in Frankfurt/Main with the digitization of urban biodiversity mapping

Senckenberg has been carrying out biotope type mapping of Frankfurt’s urban area since 1985.

While the more recent data for evaluations of changes in the urban area are already available in digital form, the exciting initial survey from the 1980s in particular is not currently available digitally.

Support us with the digitization of the biotope type maps. Your main task will be to identify the individual biotopes of the scanned maps on the PC. You need basic computer skills, ideally previous knowledge in GIS applications. Further training will take place on site.


Diligence, meticulousness, patience, previous experience in GIS applications would be idealIn principle at any time, but at the moment we cannot accept volunteers due to corona restrictions.In the division Botany and Molecular Evolution with Dr. Starke-Ottich in Frankfurt am Main Urban biotope mapping, especially the tracing of the scanned maps on the PCBy arrangement
