Preprocessing of EO data

This course introduces preprocessing operations, sometimes referred to as image restoration and correction, used to correct radiometric and geometric data distortions specific to sensors used in EO.


Validation of EO Products

Quantifying the quality of satellite, aero and drone data products by decomposing the inherent uncertainty components is a very challenging task. This course provides an overview of EO data validation procedures and frameworks.


The EO4GEO project

A a brief introductory presentation to the Erasmus+ EO4GEO project. EO4GEO is an Erasmus+ Sector Skills Alliance gathering 26 partners from 13 EU countries. This presentation is available in English, Italian, Spanish and German.
