Geospatial technologies refers to the range of modern tools contributing to the geographic mapping and analysis of the Earth and human societies. It involves GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems, e.g. GPS), GIS (Geographical Information Systems), and RS (Remote Sensing). This technology offers a radically different way in which geographic data is acquired and used to manage communities and industries. As 80% of all data (e.g. in governance, business, security, environment, etc.) consist of geographic data, Geospatial technologies benefits organizations of all sizes and in almost every industry.
The content of this course is highly relevant for professionals from a wide range, who ultimately need to make spatially-informed decisions. The course will also provide an opportunity for participants to learn how to exploit recent innovations in geospatial technologies such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV, i.e. drones), Google Earth Engine, Satellite Imaging and Mapping, GIS, GPS, etc. to advance operations in their respective institutions. The hands-on nature of the course will enable participants to directly apply knowledge and skills gained from the training in their organizations, providing an innovative instrument to overcome the limits of the current expensive and cumbersome procedures.
