The Open Data Science Workshop is a 5-day event with days 1-2 providing training in processing data cubes and using machine learning to extract content, and days 3-5 providing oral talks and discussion panels.
This event is sponsored by the OpenGeoHub foundation: no participation fees will be charged. Participants are, however, expected to finance their own travel and accommodation expenses. Majority of lectures will be broadcast-ed live using Zoom and Youtube channels.
The special theme of the workshop 2021 is:
“Spatiotemporal modeling of European Landscapes and Climate 2000–2020: using EO and Machine Learning”
The Copernicus land data products and similar data products funded by European Commission play a central role in the reference data framework that determines the quality and traceability of all Copernicus products and services. But many of these layers suffer from limited reproducibility and completeness. By building and implementing Geo-harmonizer we will contribute to the Copernicus product in producing new added-value products. For example, we use automated mapping methods to produce annual land cover maps at 30-m resolution for the complete period 2000–2020, the “OpenStreetMap+” (we merge OpenStreetMap data with other EO products) and a number of other value-added layers. We aim at producing analysis and/or decision ready layers that can be used directly by end-users.
The Open Data Science Europe data portal / viewer aims at serving decision-ready layers such land cover, air quality and pollution, potential natural vegetation and similar. To calculate these value-added decision-ready maps, we use topographic data (DEMs), Earth observation (EO) data, hydrological and meteorological data that we map using automated mapping systems largely based on spatiotemporal Machine Learning algorithms available in the Open Source software. We then serve the data using Cloud-Optimized GeoTIFFs to allow for seamless and unrestricted access. We aim at documenting all processing steps through gitlab.com up to the level of full-reproducibility.
Hotel WICC is at the convenient location in the center of Wageningen. Wageningen is a student town with a population of about 45,000 from which about 13,000 students.
