The GEOBIA Summer School 2020 is organized by University of Salzburg, Department of Geoinformatics (Z_GIS) – UNIGIS, CopHub.AC and is supported by ESA. The Summer School will be held in Salzburg, Austria, June 29 – July 10, 2020.
This Summer School will provide an overview of Copernicus, its data and services and a profound introduction and training in object-based image analysis (OBIA) with different software. Thematically it will cover two out of the three Copernicus-relevant topics: Land monitoring, Emergency response including Humanitarian action, and Climate change. During the application, a preference can be given which will be addressed by designing the programme. Thus it will specifically encourage participants from academia, industry, and public authorities at the interface between methodological development, service specification and provision of solutions.
Lectures by distinguished scholars and researchers are complemented by interactive hands-on and lab sessions, group work and a field trip that give students the opportunity to prepare for international work, obtain qualifications and experiences in Earth observation and remote sensing, and build strong inter-personal and team skills. Results of working groups will be presented in a special session at the GEOBIA Special track of the GI_Forum 2020.
