New publication by the Brazil Data Cube team in collaboration with University of Twente

The BDC project team, in collaboration with researchers from Faculty Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente, Netherlands, has just published an article in the Remote Sensing Journal.

The article entitled “Identifying Spatiotemporal Patterns in Land Use and Cover Samples from Satellite Image Time Series” presents a method to improve the land use and cover samples inferring subclasses through the phenological, spectral and spatiotemporal information provided by satellite image time series.

GEO-INPE Webinars on Brazil’s forest monitoring system

The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) is hosting a series of webinars describing Brazil’s Amazon monitoring system, the tools used and the recent technological advances by Brazil’s National Institute for Space Research (INPE).

The webinars will address the following topics:

  • The PRODES system: history, operation, data dissemination and use.
  • The DETER system: history, operation, data dissemination and use.
  • The TerraAmazon software for forest monitoring and current advances and future plans for INPE’s monitoring systems.
  • The Brazilian Data Cube project: innovation to automatize land use and land cover data production using Big Earth Observation data and machine learning methods.
