In June and early July, two guest scientists were invited to the University of Würzburg, Department of Remote Sensing for training and cooperation purposes within the framework of the project “Central Asian Water” (CAWa).

Both guests are supporting the CAWa project in their countries to implement and make accessible the research results in the region. The aim of their visits in Würzburg was to validate land use classifications from remote sensing data by means of in situ field crop observations, while at the same time integrating training data into the further improvement of classifications and efficiently planning the field campaigns for this year.
