  • 06/15/2021 Webinar-5

On 06/15/2021, Dr.-Ing. Simon Plank from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) held the fifth and last Webinar of our series on the topic 'The international Charter Space and Major Disasters - Satellite data to support disaster response worldwide'.

We were really happy to welcome about 30 participants from numerous countries and institutions. The participants learned more about what the Charter actually is, who is involved and how it manages to provide such rapid response to disaster situations. To illustrate this, different disaster scenarios were presented as well as which type of satellite data and steps of analysis are best suited for the support of rapid response.   

 

  • 06/09/2021 Webinar-4

On 06/09/21, Dr. Olaf Conrad from the Institute for Geography (IGeogr) at the University of Hamburg, Germany, held the fourth Webinar of our series on the topic ‘From points to space - interpolation and regression with SAGA GIS’.

We were really happy to welcome about 30 participants from numerous countries and institutions. The participants had learned more about the open source and freely available software SAGA GIS and got an introduction on how to derive continuous fields in form of raster data from irregularly distributed point data.

Interpolation and Regression-based approaches like Nearest Neighbor, Triangulation, Splines, IDW, Ordinary Kriging and Multiple Linear Regression were demonstrated using the example of climate data.

 

  • 06/02/2021 Webinar-3

On 06/02/21, Rebecca Bahls & Mark Gropius held the third Webinar of our series on the topic ‘BGR initiatives for an improved groundwater management in Jordan "Evaluation of the groundwater resources"’.
We were really happy to welcome about 30 participants from numerous countries and institutions. The participants had learned more about the the outcomes of the current BGR project ‘Groundwater Resources Management’ in Jordan, which mainly focused on the groundwater resources assessment and its historical development over the last 20 years.

 

  • 05/25/2021 Webinar-2

On 05/25/21, Grega Milcinski and the Sentinel Hub Team held the second Webinar of our series on the topic ‘EO Browser, a web application for cloud computing processing of remote sensing data.'.
We were really happy to welcome about 40 participants from numerous countries and institutions. The participants had learned more about the EO Browser and how to make use of it for Geospatial and Remote Sensing applications, for example by creating custom visualizations on the fly, creating polygons and calculating statistics, as well as how to use the pins and 3D feature. At the end of the webinar, the presenters talked specifically about different ways to employ the EO Browser for exploring and detecting wildfires.

 

  • 05/18/2021 Webinar-1

On 05/18/21, Dimitris Karakostis from the World Food Programme held the first Webinar of our Webinar-series on the topic 'Remote Sensing in support of impact evaluation by wildfires'.
49 participants from Germany, Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria had the pleasure to learn more about the World Food Programme, how they make use of Geospatial and Remote Sensing Methodology and specifically their approach to assessing the impact of wildfires in Syria using Remote Sensing and the Google Earth Engine.
