Trans-Atlantic Training 2013 (TAT-1): Classification methods in Land-Use/Land-Cover Change
June 20, 2013 - June 22, 2013
Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic
The purpose of the series of Trans-Atlantic Training (TAT) courses is to disseminate and discuss research methods and technologies from space. It is organised jointly by ESA, NASA and the Charles University of Prague, in close cooperation with the Regional Information Network for Southern, Central and Eastern Europe (SCERIN). This training was the first in the series of TAT courses.
This first edition was hosted by the Faculty of Sciences of the Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, from 20 to 22 June 2013.
The programme was devoted to the techniques used to classify Land Cover/Land Use Change (LCLUC).
The various sessions included topics such as mapping changes in forest cover, ecosystem carbon assessment, land cover classification in combination with social studies, and SAR for agriculture, wetlands, and urban areas, among many others.
Around 25 young scientists and PhD students in the field of remote sensing joined this event, mainly from five European countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Germany).
