Program description

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COURSE WILL CEASE TO BE OFFERED IN 2014

In the face of global climate change and population increase, our ability to monitor the Earth's natural resources has become more and more pressing. The promise of timely and easy access to geo-information is an essential building stone in this endeavour. Geodata infrastructure (GDI) technologies try to sell us the idea that data but no longer our time is a consumable. In reality, however, we still consume a significant portion of our time and energy on obtaining and understanding the messages hidden therein. In the absence of a Google Earth-type system providing easy and real-time access to data collections relevant to natural resources management, holistic approaches also lag behind. This course highlights new technologies that may well change this situation, ushering in a new era of distributed data access, processing and analysis.

This course is relevant for professionals who have a basic knowledge of natural resources monitoring, remote sensing, digital image processing and GIS.
