Remote Sensing and Change Detection Workshop
The objective of this workshop is to build remote sensing capacity for the participants. The first week will focus on image processing theory and fundamental concepts while working through exercises to create a land cover map with an accuracy assessment. The second week will focus on detecting and monitoring landscape change. This training will help countries with their ongoing work, such as preparing the forestry data for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) reporting.
This event is supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID); the Thailand Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation; the SilvaCarbon technical cooperation program of the U.S. Geologic Survey; the U.S. Forest Service; the European Commission; and SERVIR-Mekong/Asian Disaster Preparedness Center.
