The Belgian Earth Observation Day (BEODAY) is an annual event where the results of research in the domain of Earth observation, mainly carried out within the framework of the STEREO (Support to Exploitation and Research in Earth Observation) programme, are presented and where the Belgian remote sensing community has ample opportunity to meet and network. Researchers as well as people working in private companies and administrations are welcome to attend.
Normally, the STEREO team organises one BEODAY a year, but we liked the January 2018 so much that we decided to have another one later this year. Instead of Beersel, we will be heading south to Barvaux-Condroz.
This time, the focus will be on the results of STEREO projects that finished earlier this year or are soon to end. In addition we will have live demonstrations of our new website and the TERRASCOPE portal.
