Land Management in-person and online trainings focus on accessing, interpreting, and processing NASA Earth Observation data for a variety of terrestrial applications. Topics include land cover mapping, conducting change detection, and processing vegetation indices such as the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI). Trainings aid participants in the areas of conservation, animal movement, phenology, carbon monitoring, and near-shore land/ocean processes.
Courses are designed primarily for local, state, regional, and international land management agencies, NGOs, policy makers, and other applied science professionals.
