Forest change detection with OpenForis and High Resolution Imagery.
2021-09-28, 14:00–18:00, Group on Earth Observations

FAO and partners will present a hands-on training workshop in cloud computing, open-source data processing software, and geospatial data infrastructures to produce land cover and land use products, with a special emphasis on change detection. Participants will use FAO’s OpenForis suite of tools including the SEPAL Platform to build optical and radar satellite imagery composites, perform supervised image classification, analyze time-series information, and generate statistics. Special focus on using the freely available NICFI / Planet high spatial resolution imagery for land monitoring. Participants will use R, Python, GDAL, Google Earth Engine, and other software in a high-performance, cloud computing environment to perform analyses.

The workshop will be supported by other GFOI partners including the US SilvaCarbon and SERVIR programmes.
