MAPPING THE WORLD WITH QGIS 2021 (online)
Timely to the recent adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, this workshop provided lectures and hands-on sessions for the effective monitoring of a variety of SDGs (e.g. water security, conservation, forestry, urban sustainability) with a focus on geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing.
Run in cooperation with the UNOOSA and with support from the Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI), through the GUPES Project, this workshop was focused on the application of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in water management and security and was a preparatory activity for the Eye on Earth Summit 2015, featuring a combination of lectures and hands-on interactive sessions.
The objective of this course was to provide students with theoretical backgrounds and up-to-date developments in terms of spatial planning and landscape sustainability. It aimed at facilitating the integration of researchers from EU neighbors into the European research scene on ICT and spatial planning in environmental management and decision-making.
The primary focus of this workshop was the ICT application in water management and water security. It covered a number of technologies including distance learning, remote sensing, geospatial technologies, and decision-support systems, among others.
