EO4SD-Urban Webinar Series

The EO4SD-Urban project is happy to announce a free webinar series on satellite-derived geospatial information for urban development. The webinars are part of the capacity building offered to our project partners (development bank staff, technical staff from participating cities, etc.).

The webinars introduce the latest methodologies of obtaining geospatial information from satellite Earth Observation (EO) data for urban development. The presenters are experts of the EO4SD-Urban consortium.

Participants will:

  • Increase their understanding on how to improve sustainable urban development with applications of Earth Observation (EO)
  • Learn about the latest freely available and commercial satellite data
  • Gain insight in different use cases in urban development activities
  • Have the opportunity to get in direct contact with presenting experts
  • Receive a certificate for participation in the webinar (upon request).
