February | RUS Training Course | Lisbon, Portugal

Thank you to the attendees of the face-to-face Training Course on Using Sentinel data for Land Cover Land Use (LCLU) monitoring and Forest Fires applications which took place in Lisbon last week.

The 22 participants, already having a few years' experience in Earth Observation, were selected amongst 180 applicants.

The two-day course included morning lectures on the LCLU theory & mapping and on Forest Fires applications as well as hands-on sessions in the afternoon where participants were given access to the RUS Virtual Machines and could follow the Sentinel data processing practical exercises.

Quotes from our participants:

“Very good lecturers and organization. The contents are very good to initiate work in the areas of the course!”

“Thank you very much for the opportunity to get in contact with all the experts that shared their knowledge with us!”
