New GeoSens Trainings at the Department of Remote Sensing – Registration is open

June 27, 2022

Would you like to learn more about integrating Earth observation data and especially remote sensing data in international collaboration and working with open-source tools such as QGIS and Google Earth Engine, in addition to exchanging ideas in an international atmosphere? Then the GeoSens trainings might be the right thing for you.

The GeoSens pieces of training will take place in person* and aim at project members of various organizations such as WWF, GIZ, KfW, and others.

There are three different training sessions to choose from “Integrating Remote Sensing in International Development Work” (EO4IntDev), “Introduction to Remote Sensing with QGIS” (EO4QGIS), and “Introduction to Remote Sensing with Google Earth Engine” (EO4GEE). More information such as the addressees of the trainings, times, possibilities for registration, etc. can be found at http://geosens.org

*Depending on the covid 19 pandemic situation and regulations, we would, if necessary, substitute the possibility of online training. In this case, the training will be provided online via the platforms MS Teams/Zoom.
