Description

Do you want to know how to process petabytes of planetary-scale satellite data in the Cloud? Or how to apply machine learning methods to classify point clouds? Or how to interactively visualize geospatial data using GPU-enabled web applications? Join us for this two-day symposium!

During morning interactive plenary sessions, speakers will discuss present and future advances in Earth Observation, visualization techniques and the integration of Open data in modeling practice.

The afternoon sessions will focus on a number of hands-on workshops where multiple techniques and software tools will be presented.

Zooming in from a global to a local scale, examples will be presented how multiple data types can complement each other for a better understanding of natural and anthropogenic processes. New products and services will be discussed, with a special emphasis on bridging the gap between science and user communities, through closer interaction.

During breaks and at the informal drinks at the end of the day there will be plenty of opportunities to meet and talk with the other participants, including Deltares experts.

 

Topics being covered during the 2 days are: 

  • Earth Observation
  • Google Earth Engine
  • OpenStreetMap
  • OpenEarth
  • Drones
  • LiDAR point clouds
  • Aqueduct
  • Aqua Monitor
  • EMODnet project
