EO Training before the XIX SELPER International Symposium (POSTPONED)
November 9, 2020 - November 13, 2020
Department of Geographic Engineering, Universidad de Santiago de Chile
Course postponed until further notice
Updated 01/06/2020: In view of the recent developments related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the direction from the respective health authorities, SELPER and the European Space Agency have decided to postpone this course, originally planned for 9-13 November 2020, to a later date, still to be defined.
ESA and the Latin American Society of Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Systems (SELPER) are organising a training course preceding the XIX International SELPER Symposium.
The theoretical and practical sessions will be lead by different experts coming from ESA and American space agencies, such as INPE and CRECTEALC. The event counts with the support of the CEOS Working Group on Capacity Building and Data Democracy.
The topics will focus on the use of the Copernicus Sentinels (SAR and optical) for a variety of applications related to vegetation and natural disasters (e.g. deforestation, agriculture, fires, floods, earthquakes).
The programme will include theory and practical sessions, and will be available soon.
This training will be addressed to users from Latin American countries with previous experience in SAR Remote Sensing and GIS. Participants from other countries may also be considered.
The application process has been temporarily paused, until a new date for the course is defined. Registration to the course will be free.
