Monsoon rains can have an enormous impact in southern Asia. While the rains can help agriculture, it can also cause extreme flooding. Satellite data can augment decision-support for flood warnings, responses, relief, and mitigation activities. This two-day training will cover access and use of satellite imagery and data to inform flood-related decisions. Attendees will learn to access and analyze data. This will allow attendees to track and map flooding, assess affected areas, and learn how they can integrate satellite data into their own decision-making processes.
- Monitor and map flooding
- Identify affected areas and populations
- Make informed, flood-related decisions based on satellite data and imagery
- Two day training
- November 18-19
- Pre-conference event for the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) Technical Commission V Symposium on "Education & Outreach - Geospatial technology – Pixel to People"
Water resources and disasters managers, emergency responders, and individuals from the energy utility, transportation, and insurance sectors. There will be limited spots reserved for attendees from research and academia. Training participants will be selected through an application process and priority may be given to applied end-users.
Q: Does registering confirm my selection for training?
A: Registration does not confirm your selection. All applications will be reviewed and only selected participants will be notified after the close of registration.
Q: Is there a registration fee to attend this training?
A: Yes. More details are available at the symposium website. The registration fee is only paid after your selection for the training
Q: Do I have to register for the ISPRS symposium to attend the training?
A: No, registration to the ISPRS symposium is not mandatory, but highly encouraged.
