Water Monitoring using Earth Observation with the Digital Earth Africa Platform – Workshop, 9th May.

09 - May - 2022

About The Event

Digital Earth Africa exists to improve the lives of people across the African continent by translating Earth observations into insights that will support sustainable development.

Our platform and services enable African governments, industry and decision makers to track changes across the continent in unprecedented detail. This provides valuable insights for better decision making across many areas, including flooding, drought, soil and coastal erosion, agriculture, forest cover, land use and land cover change, water availability and quality, and changes to human settlements.

During this one-day workshop, the team will guide you through hands-on exercises that will provide enough skills to navigate through the Water Observation from Space continental service, to quantify SDG6 related indicators in Digital Earth Africa’s freely accessible computing environment and will provide tips on how to develop your own use case on the platform using Landsat or Sentinel Earth observation datasets. 

The workshop is open to beginners therefore participants do not need to have any pre-existing knowledge in Earth observation or programming. The number of participants will be limited to around 20, selected from the conference attendants. If you would like to attend please fill in the registration webform.  

If you are interested in learning more about how to use Digital Earth Africa data and tools you can undertake the DE Africa online training and participate in the weekly virtual live sessions 10am GMT every Wednesday.
