Advanced Webinar: Change Detection for Land Cover Mapping
Land cover changes can impact many areas of life. These changes can affect deforestation, ecological communities, wildfire extent, and urban growth. This advanced series will focus on using satellite imagery to map changes in land cover. Attendees will learn change detection methods, including image subtraction and classification. They will also conduct their own change detection analysis. This training will use QGIS, the R statistical program, and the Random Forest algorithm. Both sessions will feature a lecture, time to complete a hands-on exercise, and time for questions.
- Two, two-hour sessions
- Sessions will be on Fridays, September 28 and October 5, with the same content being presented at 10:00 and 18:00 EDT (UTC-4)
- A certificate of completion will be provided to participants that attend all live webinars and complete the homework assignment. Note: Certificates of completion only indicate the attendee participated in all aspects of the training. They do not imply proficiency on the subject matter, nor should they be seen as a professional certification.
