Organisation: Copernicus Research and User Support (RUS) Service portal

A five-part, advanced webinar series will be offered by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA), as part of the UNOOSA-ESA-ISRO-NASA Earth Observation Trainings for Agriculture, in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA), NASA Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET), Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and the Indian Space Research Organisation(ISRO), following the UN/Austria Symposium 2021 on "Space Applications for Food Systems”.

Background

As national-level mapping of crop types has been carried out for years to monitor food security, inform optimal use of the landscape, and contribute to agricultural policy, high-quality crop mapping has become a requirement for most nations.

Among the various theoretical and practical sessions that will be offered by experts all over the world in this webinar series, RUS Copernicus will contribute with an online demonstration on “Operational Crop Classification Roadmap using Optical and SAR Imagery”.

Audience

This webinar series is intended for local, regional, federal, and non-governmental organizations from agriculture and food security related agencies to use radar and optical remote sensing applications in the domain of agriculture for crop type mapping.

Registration

Registration is open until the day of each training session or until the maximum capacity of the course has been reached.
