Advanced Webinar: Change detection for land cover mapping

28 September - 5 October 2018

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Course Overview: Land cover changes can impact many areas of life. These changes can affect deforestation, ecological communities, wildfire extent, and urban growth. This advanced series will focus on using satellite imagery to map changes in land cover. Attendees will learn change detection methods, including image subtraction and classification. They will also conduct their own change detection analysis. This training will use QGIS, the R statistical program, and the Random Forest algorithm. Both sessions will feature a lecture, time to complete a hands-on exercise, and time for questions.

The course will consist of two sessions, on 28 September and 5 October 2018.
