Data Steward Wahib

I am employed at the Center for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) e.V. in M√ľncheberg and work there mainly in the research data management group.

My PhD is in Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing. My areas of expertise are soil spectroscopy, digital soil mapping, and land use and landscape pattern change monitoring.

How did I get into data management?

I have been involved with the use of remote sensing data in several research projects on landscape ecology at universities and non-university research institutions since about 2004.

What does good data management mean to me?

Since large and complex datasets as well as results are involved, the sustainable use of the collected experience is always a challenge. For many researchers, detailed documentation or good structuring of these data has become a key to solving many reusability problems.
