Sept 2019 Update:

A webinar series intended for academics, scientists, researchers, and professionals interested in Hyperspectral Remote Sensing and its applications. The webinar series will take place between Nov 5 and Dec 6, 2019.

By the end of this webinar series, students should:

  • Understand the concept of Hyperspectral Remote Sensing and appreciate why calibration is critical and knowledge of approaches taken for the atmospheric correction of hyperspectral data. Know about advantages of hyperspectral over optical remote sensing
  • Be able to understand the processing steps of hyperspectral data and availability of software’s.
  • Application of Hyperspectral remote sensing for Vegetation, Water resources and geological studies.

April 2020:

    • There will be a major update to the material this month. A plan for the updates and materials will be shared at the May 2020 WGCapD monthly call.
    • Passive material available at EO College by end of year. MOOC will start end of 2021. 
    • The deadline will be updated to Q4 2020.

This deliverable will have the main presentations completed for about 10 sessions by the end of the year. Three are available now. Also, this deliverable is planning to have four small MOOCs: a basic one and 3 thematic ones to  be available in fall 2021. In addition, now planning due to COVID, a software for processing hyperspectral data. A lplanned local workshop  will be moved into webinars to take place during the 1st and 2nd quarter 2021.

HYPERedu and EO-College proudly present the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) ‘Beyond the Visible – Introduction to Hyperspectral Remote Sensing’ to start on 24 November 2021. The MOOC teaches the principles of imaging spectroscopy, sensor technologies and data acquisition techniques, hyperspectral data processing approaches and data sources, and provides expert-led hands-on training. It addresses students and users around the world assuming basic knowledge in the field of optical remote sensing. The course comprises three thematic lessons and is designed to take you about five hours, to be completed at your own pace. Check out the table of contents and register at the course page on EO-College.

The course was developed by GFZ Potsdam as part of the HYPERedu initiative with support from experts at various partner institutions. The development was funded within the EnMAP science program under the German Space Agency at DLR with resources from the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy. More educational resources on hyperspectral remote sensing, including a growing number of CC-BY-licensed slide collections and tutorials are available in the resources section on EO-College.
