Advanced training on Earth Observation (EO) and Geospatial Information Technology (GIT) Applications for Climate Resilience @Suva, Fiji
September 21 @ 9:00 am - September 25 @ 5:00 pm
Over the last two decades Geo-spatial Information Technology (GIT) has rapidly developed and is now being also called an “enabling technology” due to the benefit it offers across different application domains. GIT can help us to analyse why and where things have happened in the past. It can also help us to better understand why and where they might happen in the future, allowing us to make informed decision and maximum use of our resources.
UNOSAT offered an introductory course focused on building up the knowledge on Earth Observation and Geospatial Information Technology by introducing participants to the basic concepts and terminology related to GIS and Remote Sensing. Concepts included identification, search, collection and organization of geospatial data/information, introduction to ArcGIS software, to DRR and the use of both GIT and EO for Hazard Risk Assessment and Decision Support Services.
As continuation, this advanced training session will focus on Advanced Earth Observation topics and Geospatial Information Technology applications for climate resilience by recalling basic concepts of geospatial data management and Remote Sensing processes, and by introducing ArcGIS Online applications and Web Mapping as decision support information.
