Hands-on Satellite Imagery Analysis

Monday, October 22 , 1:00 P.M. - 5:00 P.M.
Location: J.J. Pickle Research Center
Taught by:
Sara Safavi
Satellite data is more widely available than ever before, and it is now possible for the public to access sub-weekly and even daily imagery of the Earth's entire landmass. In this tutorial, you will gain hands-on experience exploring publicly-available satellite imagery and using Python tools for geospatial and time-series analysis of medium- and high-resolution imagery data. At the end of the workshop, you will apply what you've learned to investigate real-world challenges. This workshop is for geospatial data developers and GIS professionals who have basic familiarity with Python. It would help if learners attending this workshop also had some familiarity with Jupyter Notebooks, but this is not required.
