AndesSAT 2010 Practical Sessions

 October 26, 2010 - October 27, 2010
 Cochabamba, Bolivia

During the workshop on the applications of integrated space technologies for sustainable development in the mountain regions of Andean countries (AndesSAT 2010) practical sessions were provided on the use of the ESA EO software toolboxes.

The workshop, organised jointly by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA), the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Vice Ministry of Science and Technology on behalf of the Government of Bolivia, with a strong support from the Argentinian Space Agency (CONAE), was held in Cochabamba, Bolivia, from the 25 to 29 October 2010.

The practicals took place in two afternoon sessions on Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27. These sessions involved exercises in processing EO data from a range of different satellite sensors (both radar and optical) using the ESA software toolboxes BEAM, NEST and LEOWorks.

Processing with Open Source ESA Toolbox NEST
Orthorectification of ASAR data
Flood Mapping over Ecuador using ASAR data

Processing with Open Source ESA Toolbox BEAM
Orthorectification of MERIS data and geometric correction of PROBA HRC data
Burnt area mapping with SPOT data over Greece

Image Segmentation and Comparison of Optical and Radar Imagery
Segmentation of MERIS image
Comparison of MERIS bands, segmented layer and ASAR image

Glacier Monitoring Exercises with the Free ESA Software LEOWorks
Glacier flow velocity measurement using ASTER data
Multispectral analysis of glacier retreat and advance using Landsat data
Glacier delineation using Landsat data
Radar response to ice and snow using ASAR data

List of data used in the exercises:
DEMs : GETASSE 30 and SRTM DEM
ASAR: ASAR WSM over Cochabamba and ASAR WSM of floods in Ecuador
Landsat 7 ETM+ data over La Paz
MERIS FR data over Bolivi
