General Information
 
The Mission of the CEOS Working Group on Capacity Building & Data Democracy (WGCapD) is to build upon the CEOS Data Democracy Initiative in an effort to increase the capacity of institutions in less developed countries for effective use of Earth Observation data for the benefit of society and to achieve sustainable development.

Education is a tool for wider outreach to the world community capacity building and the effective management of natural resources for sustainable development.

The International e-learning course on Introduction to Remote Sensing Technology is an effort by CEOS Agencies toward:
  • Providing wider and easier access to Earth Observation data;
  • Increasing the sharing of software tools such as the use of open source software and open systems interface;
  • Increasing data dissemination capabilities, transferring relevant technologies to end users.
The main goal of this course is to disseminate the remote sensing technology among University Lecturers , encouraging them to use remote sensing in Earth sciences applications.

This course is free of charge and applications to participate must be submitted online at Application Form. The application period closes on the 15th of January 2013.
