- Crop mapping in Zankalon, Egypt using different ML classifiers in Python | December 6, 2023, 14:00 CET (GMT+1) | Online webinar with live-chat | In this webinar the introduction and overview of the machine learning algorithms and classifiers will be provided with a special focus on supervised ML methods such as: Random Forest, Support Vector Machines and unsupervised ML methods such as K-means.
- Parcel-based crop monitoring from space | Wednesday, 29 November, 2023, 14:00 CET (GMT+1) | Online webinar with live-chat | This webinar will provide insights into the possibilities, limitations and remaining challenges related to high-resolution crop monitoring. Together we will explore which information can be derived from these satellite observations, including parcel extent, crop type, phenology, biomass production and crop stress.
October 2023 was a very busy month for the EO AFRICA R&D Facility. We delivered two face-to-face courses in parallel in Kigali and Dar es Salaam as part of our Capacity Development program through the EO AFRICA Space Academy. Mahdi
