The European Space Agency (ESA) organised the 9th Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing, which focused on agriculture. The course took place at Louvain-la-Neuve, in Belgium, from 16 to 20 September 2019. The training was hosted by Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain), Belgium.
The aim of the training course was to:
- Train the next generation of scientists and professionals on remote sensing for land surfaces, with a focus on agriculture
- Explain the theoretical principles, processing algorithms, data products and their use in agriculture applications
- Introduce tools and methods for the exploitation of EO satellite data, in particular the Copernicus Sentinels
- Stimulate and support the exploitation of EO data for agriculture remote sensing science and operational applications using the ESA Sen2-Agri system and Food Security Thematic Exploitation Platform
