Workshop on Land Cover Characterization with Remote Sensing: A Practical Viewpoint

DAASE IIT Indore with the IEEE GRSS student branch chapter is conducting a three-day workshop on “Land Cover Characterization with Remote Sensing: A Practical Viewpoint” in collaboration with the IEEE GRSS MP section.

This workshop aims to explain the fundamentals of Remote Sensing, Geographic Information System (GIS), and data processing and applications of remote sensing with hands-on sessions. This course includes theoretical concepts as well as an elaborate hands-on session for remote sensing applications.
The standard processing chain of optical and SAR datasets from different modalities.
Open-access software and platforms like Google Earth Engine, SNAP, PolSARpro, QGIS, and open-source programming languages like Python.
Processing and interpreting the open-source remote sensing datasets.
Recently developed descriptors/parameters derived from remote sensing datasets.
About the speaker:
Abhinav Verma is currently pursuing his Ph.D. degree in geoinformatics and natural resources engineering at the Centre of Studies in Resources Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (CSRE, IITB), Mumbai, India. He was a researcher with the Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS), ISRO, Dehradun. His research interest is to advance and apply radar remote sensing datasets for several land cover applications, including crop monitoring, built-up area mapping, wetland characterization, and change detection.
