The University of Malta, in collaboration with the Centre National D’Etudes Spatiales (CNES) in Toulouse, France is organizing a two-day workshop on Remote Sensing and its applications. The workshop will be hosted by the Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST), at Villa Bighi on 17 and 18 March 2020. The workshop will aim at:
● Training the next generation of scientists and professionals on the use of remote sensing for various domains including urban monitoring, agriculture, environmental monitoring, as well as techniques for object and change detection.
● Explaining the theoretical principles, data products, processing and their uses in various applications.
● Introducing tools and methods for the exploitation of EO satellite data (in particular the Orfeo Toolbox)
● Providing practical cases of Earth Observation image/data processing.
Participation is limited to 25 persons. Interested participants are requested to register by no later than Friday 28 February 2020. Participation is free and will include refreshments. Participants are expected to bring their laptops to the event. No previous Remote Sensing experience is required. This workshop is funded by the SATINET project which is financed by the Malta Council for Science & Technology, for and on behalf of the Foundation for Science and Technology, through the MCST-CNES Space Bilateral Fund.
