The Helmholtz Association on research data management and information infrastructures in 2012 provided a starting point for a series of web seminars on research data projects, research data management, and access to research data.
To date, 37 Helmholtz Open Science Webinars on Research Data have been organized by the Helmholtz Open Science Coordination Office on topics like, for instance, persistent identifiers, data management tools, text mining, access to research data, and digital lab notebooks.
On Monday, 20 June 2016,
3.00 to 3.30 pm CEST
Prof. Dr. Mihai Datcu (DLR) will present the webinar:
Big data science for Earth observation - large scale visual analytics and knowledge discovery.
Presently the rate of collecting Earth observation (EO) imagery data is growing immensely, while the sophistication of the imaging sensors is amplifying the complexity of images beyond human perception.
This presentation introduces some big data analytics methods and tools dedicated to the exploration of large volumes of EO images. Applications for the discovery of meaningful objects or Earth cover structures range from urban areas monitoring to natural hazard effects assessment.
The results obtained for the Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images, acquired by the German satellite TerraSAR-X, and Copernicus data are exemplified.
Registration: there isn't any registration required. Please go to the instructions page for details on how to join the webinar.
