    Data-centric Explainable Machine Learning for Land Cover Mapping

    MOOC (Online) by AI.Geolabs · Free · Current

    In this course, explainable machine learning refers to the extent to which the underlying mechanism of a machine learning model can be explained (Biecek and Burzykowski 2020). That is, explainable machine learning models allow us (humans) to explain what the model learned and how it made predictions (post-hoc). Note this is different from interpretable machine learning (e.g., linear and logistic regression models), which refers to the extent to which a cause and effect are observed within a model (Molnar 2019).

    Python for Geographic Information System (GIS)

    Workshop (Online, Bristol, and Bath) by NobleProg · £3900-5100 · Current

    A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographic information science (GIScience) to refer to the academic discipline that studies geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of geoinformatics. The use of Python with GIS has substantially increased over the last two decades, particularly with the introduction of Python 2.0 series in 2000, which included many new programming features that made the language much easier to deploy. Since that time, Python has not only been utilized within commercial GIS such as products by Esri but also open source platforms, including as part of QGIS and GRASS. In fact, Python today is by far the most widely used language by GIS users and programmers. This program covers the usage of Python and its advance libraries like geopandas, pysal, bokeh and osmnx to implement your own GIS features. The program also covers introductory modules around ArcGIS API, and QGIS toolboox.

    QGIS for Geographic Information System

    Workshop (Online, Bristol, and Bath) by NobleProg · £3900-5100 · Current

    A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present spatial or geographic data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographic information science (GIScience) to refer to the academic discipline that studies geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of geoinformatics. QGIS functions as geographic information system (GIS) software, allowing users to analyze and edit spatial information, in addition to composing and exporting graphical maps. QGIS supports both raster and vector layers; vector data is stored as either point, line, or polygon features. Multiple formats of raster images are supported, and the software can georeference images. To summarize it allows the users to Create, edit, visualise, analyse and publish geospatial information on Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD. This program, in its first phase, introduces the QGIS interface for general usage. In the second phase, we introduce PyQGIS - the python libraries of QGIS that allows the integration of GIS functionalities in your python code or your python application, so that you may even create your own Python Plugin around a particular GIS functionality

    Land in Focus – Hazards & Disasters

    MOOC (Online) by European Space Agency (ESA) and EO College · Free · Current

    Welcome to the ‘Hazards and Disasters’ online courses. In the three MOOCs which are part of it, we will take a closer look at how remote sensing can answer essential questions related to the emergency response that is needed during hazardous events. Thus, disaster management heavily relies on remotely sensed data and their prompt processing in order to support decisions that can a) estimate the extent of a (natural) disaster and b) save lives by scientifically justifiable choices. In the three lessons of this course, we will present different applications of remotely sensed data for disaster monitoring to you. At first, we will take a look at droughts, then dive into mapping flood extents using an interactive cloud-based approach before ending our course with the monitoring of fire hazards.
