Announcing the implementation of the EO AFRICA R&D Facility Forum: We have recently implemented the EO AFRICA R&D Facility Forum as an online discussion board where people from the EO AFRICA community can ask questions, share their experiences, and discuss
The EO AFRICA Training Modules are now also available at the GMES & Africa Digital Learning Platform: The GMES & Africa Programme is announcing new modules developed by the EO-AFRICA Research and Development Facility. These courses are self-paced (no facilitator).
The 6th Webinar on the EO AFRICA R&D Facility Webinar Series is now available in our YouTube channel: Hyper-Temporal Mapping of Agro-Ecological Systems This webinar introduces participants with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge to map agro-ecological systems at region
- Face to Face course on Cloud based EO analyses for Water and Food Security | November 7 – 11, 2022 | Nairobi, Kenya | Introduction to Cloud based image analysis techniques for Water and Food Security.
- Face to Face course on Mapping and Performance Monitoring of Agroecosystems from Space | October 18 – 22, 2022 | Kigali, Rwanda | Necessary theoretical and practical knowledge for getting started on monitoring agroecosystems (croplands + rangelands) with satellite EO data.
- Vegetation and Drought Monitoring from Space | September 19 – October 14, 2022 | Online course with live-chat | The online course provides the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge on vegetation and drought monitoring based on satellite EO data. It introduces the general concept of EO-based vegetation/drought monitoring, shows the different types of potentially useful EO data, highlights relevant satellite sensors and freely available data products as well as explains different analysis techniques that can be employed for deriving meaningful information from satellite observations.
The 5th Webinar on the EO AFRICA R&D Facility Webinar Series is now available in our YouTube channel: Introduction to Precipitation from Space This webinar introduces rainfall observations obtained from satellites using the visible, thermal infrared and microwave parts of
- Hyper-Temporal Mapping of Agro-Ecological Systems | August 25, 2022, 14:00 CET | Online webinar with live-chat | This webinar introduces participants with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge to map agro-ecological systems at region to country levels (benchmark mapping) for subsequent monitoring using ‘future’ EO-derived imagery.
The 15 selected African-European tandems of the EO AFRICA R&D research projects had the opportunity to present their proposals during the recent ESA Living Planet Symposium (May 23-27) in Bonn, Germany. Topics such as droughts and floods monitoring, crop yield
The first actual Face to Face course of the EO AFRICA R&D Facility was successfully delivered from May 15 – 19, 2022 in Accra, Ghana. In this occasion, 21 participants from 5 countries learnt and practiced cloud computing-based techniques for water resources assessment using Earth observations and the Innovation Lab.
