Enabling Resilience with Remote Sensing
09:00-12:00 January 27

½ day
Intermediate level

@ 1A

Details

The workshop will demonstrate the basic principles of Remote Sensing and how it can be used in real life applications. It is split in two streams:


MAIN STREAM

We share basic concepts and typical Remote Sensing hands-on (Jupyter Notebook) examples.

  • Intro in remote sensing & applications in insurance
  • Hands on basic concepts and data types
  • Classify Land Use teaser example 
  • Experimentation with Google Earth Engine
  • Dive deeper in Remote Sensing with snow-cloud discrimination example

HACK STREAM

We would not like to keep experts in the room bored. 

Let's hack together solutions on object detections and farm boundaries.

Teams with best solutions might be considered for further collaboration.


OUTCOME

  • Basic concepts of image processing in the context of remote sensing
  • Technological challenges and relevant best practices
  • Potential of Remote Sensing in real life applications, like in the insurance world  

PREREQUISITES

  • own laptop + basic programming skills
  • register yourself at google earth engine before coming to the workshop
