Event description

Description

High-resolution Land Cover maps are fundamental for many applications such as natural resources management, ecological and hydrological modelling and study of phenomena like soil consumption and deforestation and climate change assessment.

The availability of these global datasets as open data is a great richness everywhere, and especially where these products are not available, but sometimes there are limitations in their usage due to the lack of capacity in managing and processing them. Moreover, there is a need to assess them at the local level to evaluate their accuracy and, more in general, their fitness-for-use.

The workshop focuses on the presentation of the training/educational material about the intercomparison/validation of global Land Cover maps developed within the ISPRS Capacity Building Initiative.

The dataset used in the training is GlobeLand30 (http://www.globallandcover.com/GLC30Download/index.aspx). Desktop, web and mobile collaborative geospatial applications are presented in the workshop. The training material is immediately reusable, being based on Freeware or Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and being released under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License (CC BY 3.0).

The workshop is open to any participants; no specific or technical background is required.


The workshop is free for participants of GeoDelft, otherwise a day pass has to be purchased. The deadline for an early bird registration is July 15.
