Virtual hands-on training on sits at FOSS4G 2021 conference

On September 27th, 2021, Dr Gilberto Camara, one of the members of the BDC team, will conduct virtual hands-on training on the classification of remote sensing image time series using the R package software for Satellite Image Time Series (sits) at FOSS4G (Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial) 2021 conference. The FOSS4G conference is the premier international event dedicated to presenting new developments in open source software for geospatial data applications.

The workshop will provide an introduction to sits, an open-source R package for satellite image time series analysis using machine learning. The package has been improved in the context of the Brazil Data Cube Project and supports the complete cycle of data analysis for land classification, including data management, validation and quality assessment, filtering, classification, post-processing, and accuracy estimates.

The registrations to the conference or Standalone Workshop are available. For further information, go to

Brazil Data Cube team will present a mini-course at WorCAP 2021

The Brazil Data Cube (BDC) project team will present on September 15th, 2021, the mini-course: “Introduction to STAC and WTSS” within the WorCAP 2021.

The 04-hour mini-course aimed to present an introduction to the concepts of time series and data cubes, as well as how to use, through Python language, the services Spatio Temporal Asset Catalog (STAC) and Web Time Series Service (WTSS), to obtain information about the products generated by the project.

The Applied Computing Workshop (WorCAP) is an event of the Graduate Program in Applied Computing (CAP) of the National Institute for Space Research (INPE). The event will be held from September 13th to 17th, 2021 remotely.

Registration is free and can be made until September 12th, 2021, on the WorCAP website.
