Eurasia Land Dynamics Analysis (NELDA) Project: Validation of Land
Cover Maps and Future Expansion of Test Site Network
8, 2006, Tomsk, Russia
At the International
Conference on Environmental Observations, Modeling and Information
Systems ENVIROMIS-2006, 1-8 July 2006 www.scert.ru/en/conferences/enviromis2006/
Eurasia Regional Information Network (NERIN)
and the Land
Cover Implementation Team will offer a 1-day workshop to introduce
NELDA project to the community of scientists and practitioners in
West Siberia and explore opportunities for future collaborations
aimed at improved mapping of landcover. The NELDA project is designed
to develop tools, methods, data, and collaborations needed to better
characterize land-cover dynamics across the Northern Eurasia region.
The project seeks to balance the priorities of continental and global
scale mapping with local monitoring needs, and to capitalize on
completed studies by team members.
and logistical constraints limited the number of tests sites and
the scope of work included in Phase I, there is a clear need to
expand the network of test sites. The workshop in Tomsk will bring
together representatives of research teams participating in NELDA,
scientists interested in joining the network of validation sites,
and professionals with interest in remote sensing of land cover.
The workshop agenda includes an overview of NERIN and NELDA, technical
presentations on methods for validation of coarse resolution land
cover products at NELDA test sites, discussion of plans for expanding
the network of validation sites, and assessment of specific needs
for monitoring land-cover change in West Siberia region.
will be open to all interested participants of ENVIROMIS conference
organized by Dr. E.P. Gordov of SCERT (the Siberian Center for Environmental
Research and Training / Institute for Monitoring of Climatic and
Ecological Systems of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy
of Sciences, Tomsk, Russia, firstname.lastname@example.org).
