Geospatial Intelligence for mapping land and water change - I session

1-day workshop for learning how to use satellite data for producing digital maps with a focus on natural resources and disasters

AI Workshop with Hands-on Training - II edition

Satellite observations provide powerful data and tools for understanding and managing natural resources and mitigating nuisance impacts of natural and human-driven disasEarth Technology Expoters. Earth observation supports scientists, professionals, governmental agencies as well as citizens for improved awareness, knowledge, and informed decision making towards sustainable and safe use of land and water systems. Geospatial Intelligence integrates Remote Sensing data and tools fostering multidisciplinary analytical capabilities able to work effectively at different scales, from global to regional mapping efforts. Geospatial Intelligence also supports joint efforts of satellite-sourced EO with Open Geo Data, Big Data, and Citizen Engagement.

This workshop is free to attend with no prerequisites for participants. The course is tailored for students, young scientists, and professionals but anyone interested is welcome. In one day both theoretical introduction lectures and hand-on materials will be used for a start-to-finish project development using geospatial intelligence platforms and algorithms to analyze and map land-water change across scales. Participants will work in groups and prepare within the same day a project on 3 main thematic areas.

This event is organized by the Water Resource Research & Documentation Center (WARREDOC) of Università per Stranieri di Perugia in collaboration with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (DICEA), the Department of Agriculture, Food, Environment and Forestry (DAGRI), the Water Harvesting Lab, the EcoAgroMeteo Group, the Laboratory of forest geomatics (GeoLab) and the Spatial Data Laboratory (LDT) of Università degli Studi di Firenze.

The course is in the English language, but special assistance is available also in the Italian language. All participants that will complete the workshop and hand-on training will receive a certificate of attendance.
