    SPACE 440 – Space ISR

    Course (Online) by Global Space University · POA · Current

    This course is for space professionals to develop an advanced understanding of Space Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) and its applications to civil, commercial and military problems sets. The space domain provides an unparalleled vantage point compared to the land, sea, and air domain. Collection platforms placed in space–the ultimate high ground–have the ability to provide continuous coverage even in the most heavily contested areas of the globe. Space ISR can provide civilian and military decision makers with remote sensing data, signals intelligence, indications and warning, battle damage assessments, force disposition, and characterization of the operating environment. The use of surveillance and reconnaissance satellites has evolved from more of a strategic nature to providing more time-sensitive operational and tactical levels of support. The advantage of conducting reconnaissance and surveillance from space has led to an exponential growth in the number of Space ISR satellites in orbit.

    This masterclass has been designed to help you move from a general understanding of EO data capabilities, to a clear method of identifying what type of data is right to address the challenge you are trying to solve. It’s not always about the highest resolution, the fastest revisit, or the most in-depth analysis, it’s about the right data to provide the right insights to your users. At the Satellite Applications Catapult, we employ a User Centred Design (UCD) approach to space enabled service development, putting the user at the heart of product, technology, or service design in order to de-risk its development. It’s this approach that we use to help people determine the right type of EO data for their application, and we want to share it with you. In this interactive online class aimed at UK businesses, members of the Geospatial Intelligence Team from the Satellite Applications Catapult will combine presentations with interactive tools, to help you frame your understanding of the challenge you are solving into a set of clear requirements to navigate the EO data landscape, and the commercial considerations of how you shape your service.

    Modeling Forest Aboveground Biomass using EO Data and Machine Learning: Challenges and Opportunities

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

    Miombo woodland ecosystems (in Africa) play a vital role in the global carbon cycle, however, it is currently difficult to know how much carbon they store and sequester due to a lack of data. Therefore, an accurate estimation of forest above ground biomass (AGB) is required to provide the baseline of forest carbon stocks and quantify the anthropogenic emissions caused by deforestation and forest degradation. In addition, accurate estimation of forest AGB is critical to implementing cost-effective carbon emission mitigation strategies.

    Leveraging Earth Observation (EO) Data and Cloud Computing for Disaster Risk Management

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

    The UN report that extreme weather and climate events are projected to increase over decades. Scientists warn that the frequency of cyclones and heavy storms, on the one hand, and the intensity of droughts and wildfires, on the other hand, will likely increase globally. Furthermore, the power of weather- and climate-related disasters will also increase economic losses that affect the poor and marginalized communities. Therefore, there is a need to understand the spatial and inter-annual variability of natural disasters and the population’s exposure to disaster risk. For example, information on the spatial extent of an event and the degree of destruction is critical in supporting emergency response, recovery, rehabilitation, and reconstruction.

    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.

    Land in Focus – Agriculture & Food

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

    Forests are responsible for supporting essential life processes, from purifying the air we breathe to maintaining healthy soils and clean water sources. Around the world, communities rely on the ecosystem services provided by forests to support their livelihoods. However, deforestation and forest degradation are threatening forest ecosystems worldwide, thus disturbing the climate change mitigation which forests provide, and which we desperately need. Using remote sensing satellites and techniques, we are able to map and monitor forests. This enables us to view changes in forest cover, alert authorities about deforestation events, and monitor the relationship between forests and greenhouse gasses (GHG’s). In this course, you will learn about the drivers of deforestation as well as how satellites and time series disturbance detection methods can identify deforestation events, even in areas masked by clouds.
