Due to the current outbreak of the COVID-19, the format of the GEOBIA Summer School might be adapted into a remote event. The Virtual Summer School “OBIA for the operational Copernicus service challenge” focusing thematically on Land Monitoring and Climate Change and method-wise on OBIA (object-based image analyses) is organised on June 1– July 10, 2020 by University of Salzburg, Department of Geoinformatics (Z_GIS) – UNIGIS, and is supported by CopHub.AC.
- Extension of the registration deadline until April 20th, 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.
- Knowledge of Copernicus program, data and services
- Basics in remote sensing – theoretically and data handling
- Understanding of concepts of Object-based image analyses (OBIA) and machine learning
- Experience in working with eCognition and Orfeo toolbox
- In-depth knowledge of two of the three Copernicus-relevant topics: Land monitoring, Emergency response including Humanitarian action, and Climate change through hands-on work and group assignment
