ESA Workshop on Land Product Validation 2018

A workshop by ESA at ESRIN, Frascati, Italy will be held from February 27th to March 1st aiming at discussing Land Product Validation: Retrieving land parameters globally from space has a significant heritage, currently based on satellite missions across the visible and infrared spectral domain, including ERS, Envisat, SPOT-VGT, Landsat and Proba-V. The list of available sensors has recently been extended by the onset of the Copernicus Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 missions. In future, missions such as FLEX and BIOMASS, introducing also different observation techniques such as SAR, will complement the list of sensors contributing to the retrieval of land...

article: Breaking new Ground in Mapping Human Settlements from Space

Esch et al. published a new exciting article on “Breaking new Ground in Mapping Human Settlements from Space – The Global Urban Footprint”. The publication introduces all details about the methodological framework and product characteristics of DLR’s Global Urban Footprint (GUF) layer released in November 2016. The GUF provides a worldwide record of the human settlement pattern in a so far matchless spatial detail. Please read the full article at: https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1W01w3I9x1RDru Discover the GUF data via the Urban Thematic Exploitation Platform...
