Support and training

NEODAAS staff are able to offer advice on a wide range of topics related to Earth Observation, from choosing the best sensors and algorithms for your area of interest and assistance interpreting data to practical advice on data processing, including optimising algorithms to run on large datasets. We also provide training to users by hosting and participating in training courses.

Additionally, NEODAAS staff often participate in outreach activities to help train the next generation of EO scientists.

Upcoming training sessions and outreach

In 2020 we plan to hold the following training sessions, more details will be added as they become available. Please contact us if you are interested in receiving updates.

  • MAssive GPU for Earth Observation (MAGEO) ‘hackathon’. An opportunity to utilise the new GPU cluster to apply Deep Learning to EO data and work with researchers with different areas of expertise.
  • 12th March 2020. “Deep Learning for Computer Vision”. A one day course taught by an NVIDIA accredited instructor.
  • 5th - 9th October 2020. “Practical use of Earth Observation data in research”. A week long course organised by NEODAAS and the Field Spectroscopy Facility (FSF) covering many aspects of Earth Observation, including satellite, drones and field spectroscopy with a focus on marine. A similar course with a focus on terrestrial science will be held in 2021. For more details please contact us.
