Earth Observation 101
Virtual Course

Starting Monday 10th October, WILDLABS and the Satellite Applications Catapult are proud to announce our new virtual course: Earth Observation 101. This four-part lecture series from Dr Cristian Rossi explores the technologies and the algorithms behind remote sensing and gives an overview of several applications using Remote Sensing data, including practicalities about data access and processing.

Are you new to Remote Sensing, or want to know more about the applications of the technology? Then this series is for you! This series will give you the practical knowledge base you need to understand the current state of Earth Observation for Conservation and where the field is headed.

This lecture series is free and allows you to move at your own pace with videos available to all on the WILDLABS YouTube channel. Course content will also be posted in the Earth Observation 101 Community WILDLABS group, where you can navigate through all the content, engage with other participants, and reach out to the course instructor directly.

To join this virtual course, register here!

Join us for the first part of our Earth Observation 101 Virtual Course, where we will be exploring the physical fundamentals of the main two earth observation technologies:...
Recording available

Join us for the second part of our Earth Observation 101 Virtual Course, where we will delve into the many applications where remote sensing data has been used
