Training course for using satelite images for floodplain monitoring using the Google Earth Engine

12 Feb 2021

The COST Action CONVERGES organise a Training course on using Satellite Images for floodplain monitoring using Google Earth Engine.

Date 11th and 12th of February 2021.

Monitoring the current status of floodplain vegetation and changes therein over time can be challenging and costly due to the vast extend of floodplains in many larger river systems. Satellite images give near real time information on the status of the dominant vegetation classes within the floodplains and allow for long term time series analysis.

The aim of this course is to give a first introduction to the use of Google Earth Engine for the monitoring of floodplain vegetation and analyzing changes over time.

Participants must have some experience with programming in phyton and be familiar with GIS-based analysis in QGIS or alike.
