Introduction to Cloud Computing for EO Analyses

This webinar introduces Cloud Computing and its usage to analyse and process Earth Observation (EO) data. It will also explain the topic of interactive computing through Jupyter Notebooks and JupyterLab as one of the technologies that have been used over Cloud Computing platforms for developing analytical procedures accompanied with narrative text, equations, images, and analysis outputs.

The duration of the webinar is 1 hour. During the webinar there is a live-chat available.

Basic python scripting is appreciated but not essential.

Webinar will be executed under the framework of the EO AFRICA Research & Development Facility by the University of Twente – Faculty of Geoinformation Science and Earth Observation.
