In this 2 full day, face-to-face training session, you will acquire theoretical and practical competences on the use of Sentinel data for Land Cover Land Use (LCLU) monitoring (i.e. mapping and change detection) and for forest fires related applications (e.g.
Sentinel-2 imagery provides an accurate post-event analysis of wildfire extents since small areas can be detected and assessed, while at the same time reducing the need for ground surveys on often difficult terrain. In addition, the information obtained can be
As they do not depend on solar illumination or on weather conditions, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) systems are quite relevant to monitor emergencies and more particularly floods. Moreover, thanks to its capacity to collect large amounts of data made freely
Depending on their resolution, Earth observation satellites may detect vessels without on-board tracking systems, e.g. small fishing ships. Moreover, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensors are not reliant on solar illumination, nor affected by weather conditions, therefore enabling frequent monitoring of
On 26 September 2017 , the FabSpace of Liege organised in the frame of the FabSpace 2.0 project an information and training session about Copernicus. The session was hosted by WSL, the regional incubator for engineering sciences in Wallonia, Belgium,
Two Face-to-Face training sessions were given by the RUS team on 5 July 2017, as side events of the ICCSA 2017 conference which took place in Trieste, Italy. After a general introduction on RUS, the morning hands-on session focused on
A Training of Trainers session entitled InSAR application to Earthquakes was held on 8 June 2017 by the RUS team during the Fringe 2017 workshop held in Helsinki, Finland.
