GeoInformation for Disaster Management 2018

18 - 21 March 2018

Organisations: Istanbul Teknik Universitesi, ISPRS and URSI

Location: Istanbul, Turkey

Conference overview:

The world has experienced several devastating disasters in this century, first an earthquake of a very high magnitude and then tsunami afterwards or heavy rain flows, followed by floods and landslides are common occurrences. These are conditions where even the most advanced EWS cannot make a significant difference. So, most of the potential to mitigate such a disaster in the future would have to be in the field of vulnerability reduction by adaptation, e.g. in urban planning and construction, based on risk and vulnerability maps.

Another question is the quality and coordination of disaster mapping activities to support response measures. Here we should coordinate all efforts globally as most of the disasters nowadays affect Trans boundaries. So the geo-information technologies will and better expressed should help in all facets of Disaster Management. An international effort in this direction is the (GeoInformation for Disaster Management) Gi4DM series of Conferences, which was held for the first time in 2005 after the Indian Ocean Tsunami and repeated every year. The upcoming conference in March 2018 will demonstrate the latest international advances in geo-information regarding the Disaster Management.

We invite all scientists, practitioners and decision makers to join the conference by sharing their experiences by presenting papers and participating in the discussions afterwards.

Space4Ghent: Satellite data improving life in cities

06 March 2018

Organisation: Eurisy

Location: Ghent, Belgium

Conference overview:

How can satellites help cities become more sustainable, efficient and inclusive? Which satellite data is available, and how can it be accessed and used? What can we expect from the new sets of Earth observation data made available through the Copernicus Services?

This conference will aim at answering such questions. The event will present experiences of use of Earth Observation data in cities and will generate debate among experts, citizens and local administrations on the opportunities and challenges related to the use of satellite-based services to enhance quality of life in cities. Emphasis will be placed on the Copernicus datasets and services which are most relevant for cities.

City administrations, private companies, NGOs, educational institutions, international organisations, and individuals will be invited to showcase and discuss their experiences of use of Earth Observation data to improve quality of life in cities, with the following specific objectives:

  • To raise awareness on existing uses of Earth Observation data to increase quality of life in cities.
  • To inform participants of existing datasets based on Earth Observation, and in particular of the Copernicus datasets, on how to access them and use them operationally, and on the possible applications of such datasets at the city level.
  • To identify the obstacles encountered to access and use EO data at the city level.
  • To stimulate discussion among city authorities, private companies, NGOs and individual citizens on the possible uses of EO data (and of the Copernicus datasets in particular) to develop apps and digital services enhancing quality of life in cities.
  • To support the development of mobile applications to enhance sustainability, inclusion or quality of life embedding EO data.

Introduction to Using the VIC Hydrologic Model with NASA Earth Observations

15 February - 01 March 2018

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Course Overview: Hydrologic modelling is useful for flood, drought, and water resources management. The Variable Infiltration Capacity (VIC) Model uses inputs to better understand hydrological processes in near real-time. Many of the inputs are available from NASA remote sensing and Earth system models, allowing the model to provide soil moisture, evapotranspiration and runoff as outputs. Together with precipitation data, these outputs provide quantitative assessment of a regional water budget. This introductory training will include an overview of the model, sources of satellite-derived input data, and implementation of the model. By the end of this training, attendees will be able to download, install, and use the VIC model, setup VIC for a watershed or river basin using remote sensing data inputs, and analyse output water resources components.

The course will consist of three, 1 hour sessions. Sessions will be held on Thursdays, between 15 February and 1 March from 09:00 – 10:00 and 18:00 – 19:00 EST (UTC -5). The session is broadcast twice per day to allow for international participation.

Advanced Webinar: Accuracy Assessment of a Land Cover Classification

13 & 20 February 2018

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Course Overview: In last year's ARSET Advanced Webinar: Land Cover Classification with Satellite Imagery, attendees learned the basic steps to create a supervised land cover classification. The next step to using land cover classifications is being able to evaluate the performance of a land cover map using accuracy assessments. This training will equip attendees to conduct an accuracy assessment on a land cover map and identify which classes might be misrepresented. By the end of this training, attendees will be able to conduct an accuracy assessment on a land cover map, understand how to create and use reference data, become familiar with sample designs for accuracy assessment, and develop and interpret an error matrix and a Kappa statistic.

The course will consist of two, 2 hour sessions. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays, on 13 and 20 February 2018, at 11:00-13:00 or 23:00-01:00 EST (UTC-5). The session is broadcast twice per day to allow for international participation.

Copernicus for Agriculture Workshop

05 February 2018

Organisation: Copernicus

Location: Brussels, Belgium

Registration deadline: 31 January 2018

Workshop overview:

The Agriculture sector can vastly benefit from Copernicus full free and open data and information. The Copernicus programme already interacts with different stakeholders from the agricultural sector and the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service has a number of information products which can be relevant for the Agriculture domain. However, the full potential of the Copernicus programme in support of agriculture can be further developed and exploited.

The aim of the workshop is to address the possible role of the private (downstream) sector for possible solutions, integrating Copernicus data and Copernicus services' information, in support of the agricultural end-users at the different levels: international, European and Member States' level.

The event is open and free to registered participants. Please go to "Register now" to sign up as a participant. The registration will close on 31 January 2018.
