06. EO4SD Climate Resilience Series: ‘How-to’ Session: Using the EO4SD CR Platform to access EO data (hands-on)

"The web-based (EO4SD CR) platform provides climate action programmes with enhanced climate risk management capabilities allowing users to explore the data and apply on-demand analytics"

A plethora of EO sources and the size of EO data has forced us to make use of large-scale IT infrastructure to easily manage, visualize, and generate useful indicators. The EO4SD Climate Resilience cluster project has deployed a web-based (EO4SD CR) platform to provide climate action programmes with enhanced climate risk management capabilities allowing users to explore the data and apply on-demand analytics. 

This webinar will be a hands-on session and a guided tutorial in which structured exercises will enable participants to get familiarized with the platform so they can navigate and extract the information required in their assessments.

 Webinar learning outcomes

  • To get familiarized with the user interface of the dedicated data access platform deployed under the ESA EO4SD CR initiative
  • To build knowledge about the type and use of EO-based climate data available via the EO4SD CR platform
  • To understand better the types of geo-analytical tasks and visualizations
  • To learn techniques for the extraction of data and time series

Prerequisites for the webinar

  • Basic knowledge of using a browser 
  • Basic knowledge of GIS
  • Basic knowledge of EO data
