The "Bringing GEOSS Services into Practice" workshop aims at teaching how to configure, use and deploy a set of open source software to set up a spatial data infrastructure (SDI). Trainees will learn how to publish and share data and metadata using OGC and ISO standards and how to register services into the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).
The material related to the workshop (a tutorial, a virtual machine in OVA format including data and software, and PowerPoint presentations) can be downloaded here. The tutorial is available in PDF, in iTunesStore and Google Play Books.
Two versions of the workshop are available: a version for beginners (based on the use of GeoNode) and a version for advanced users with PowerPoint presentations of the coursein Arabic, Croatian, English, French, Russian, Serbian, Spanish and soon in Czech. To start the workshop you just need to:
About 550 people have already been trained on this workshop, in Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Morocco, the Netherlands, Romania, Serbia, Switzerland, Tunisia and Turkey.
The workshop is also given at University of Geneva every year in the frame of the Certificate of Geomatics.
Changes in the ecosystem structures of the Azov Sea: monitoring of ichtyocoenoses and publication of the results on an interactive map
90 meter resolution Digital Elevation Model (DEM) v4.1 from SRTM, clipped to the Black Sea Catchment. This elevation model is used as inputs of hydrological models to assess land cover changes as well as impacts of climate change
The MODIS Land Cover Type product contains multiple classification schemes, which describe land cover properties derived from observations spanning a year’s input of Terra and Aqua data. The primary land cover scheme identifies 17 land cover classes defined by the International Geosphere Biosphere Programme (IGBP), which includes 11 natural vegetation classes, 3 developed and mosiacked land classes, and three non-vegetated land classes.
The MODIS Terra + Aqua Land Cover Type Yearly L3 Global 500 m SIN Grid product incorporates five different land cover classification schemes, derived through a supervised decision-tree classification method:
