Online Course – 3rd Edition
Remote Sensing with Google Earth Engine
March 15th-19th, 2021
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED
Please, SUBSCRIBE to our Newsletter if you want to receive information on new editions.
Online live sessions from 15th to 19th of March, from 14:00 to 18:30 (GMT+1, Madrid time zone) plus 12.5 hours of the participants working by their own.
High-quality data from remote sensing can benefit the study of the Earth system as a tool for acquiring information about the Earth through recording reflected or emitted energy. There are already a myriad variety of satellite sensors that vary in temporal, spatial coverage and resolution. Technology is advancing fast, adding new sensors and applications, as well as powerful and faster methods for image processing that are revolutionising the state-of-art on remote sensing and will become an indispensable tool for geography in the very near-future. Google Earth Engine has brought a break-through in remote sensing, making freely available and ready-to-use imagery and allowing to perform analyses in a timely and accessible manner.
Students will learn the principles of remote sensing systems, and how relevant information can be derived from remotely sensed data over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales and resolutions. Students will also develop image processing skills and learn how remote sensing data can be used to extend our understanding of global environmental changes.
The course will consist of two hours of theory, followed by live worked exercises. Participants will have daily tasks to complete with exercises, estimating that they will do self-study and practice of 3 hours/day.
Graduate or postgraduate degree in Life or Earth Sciences.
Knowledge of R and RStudio (including knowledge on writing own codes), and familiarity with GIS (ArcGIS, QGis). Participants are expected to bring a project proposal of remote sensing application to work with during the week.
All participants must have a personal computer with the latest versions of R and RStudio installed, and a good internet connection. Camera and headphones are strongly recommended.
All participants must have a personal computer (Windows, Macintosh), with webcam if possible, and a good internet connection.
March 15th-19th, 2021
Online live sessions from 15th to 19th of March, from 14:00 to 18:30 (GMT+1, Madrid time zone) plus 12.5 hours of the participants working by their own between live sessions.
35 hours live online.
This course is equivalent to 1 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) at the Life Science Zurich Graduate School.
The recognition of ECTS by other institutions depends on each university or school.
Places are limited to 14 participants and will be occupied by strict registration order.
Participants who have completed the course will receive a certificate at the end of it.
