The Digital Belt and Road (DBAR) initiative is an international “big-science” program for promoting cooperation with countries along the Belt and Road route to advocate and demonstrate the smart use and application of “Big Earth Data” in support of the sustainable development of people and economies at local, national and regional levels.
Wednesday 26th August - Expected Participants (Practitioners working in land cover mapping, WGLCA Executive Board, and Technical Advisory Group Members)
"An important outcome of the International Symposium on Land Cover Mapping for the African Continent, which convened in Nairobi, Kenya in June 2013, was the commitment to establish a Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Working Group on Land Cover for Africa. The Working Group was formally established in November 2013. It is comprised of an Executive Board with representatives from the six regions in Africa and a Technical Advisory Group, which includes both International and African remote sensing and land cover experts.”

Statistical Analysis of SAR Data - From Basics to Information, Scientific Publication Workshop and Introduction to the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) Satellite Mission.
This school is run under the auspices of the African Association for Remote Sensing of the Environment 2016 Conference. It is intended to give participants an overview of Statistical Analysis of SAR and the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) Satellite Mission. It is expected that participants will have a background in Remote Sensing and would like to harness this opportunity to expand their understanding of what is potentially available within different RS technology sectors..
