Register for our new Terrascope webinars

Join our webinars and learn more about several use cases

We are pleased to introduce to you a new series of Terrascope webinars. Experts in the field will present and demonstrate several different use cases, both research based and operational services, to show you how Earth observation data and services give us the possibility to achieve more.

Access massive amounts of data faster than ever before, combine data and use the latest technology, retrieve clear and objective information for critical decisions or new policies, … The cases are diverse: monitoring water quality, measuring nitrogen dioxide, combining satellite data and artificial intelligence to detect changes, mapping flooded areas, ...

Join us for one or more webinars and discover the great potential of Sentinel satellite data and how Terrascope can make your work easier. In each webinar, we will discuss one single use case, based on these three questions:

  • What was the question that needed an answer?
  • How did Sentinel satellite data help in formulating the answer?
  • What is the impact, now that the answer is provided?

The webinars are presented by the people directly involved in the use case. After the presentation you will be able to ask questions and chat with the experts.

  • Dates and time: Tuesdays at 16:00-16:45 (CET), view a detailed schedule below
  • Registration: register for one or more webinar via the buttons below, participation link(s) will be send as soon as you completed your registration 
  • Target audience: everyone interested in the use of satellite data and image processing services to gather objective information and/or develop online tools for various end-user applications
  • Language: the webinars will be presented in English

Webinar 15 February 2022

A marketplace to connect end users and service providers

In January 2022 we will launch the Terrascope Marketplace, a brand new platform to access and offer a variety of high-quality EO data and services.  Whether you are an end user or a service provider, an experienced EO data scientist or just looking for a EO service to support your business. The Terrascope marketplace will support you, take away the hassle and allow both end users and service providers to connect, interact and collaborate. Save the date for this webinar and discover more about:

  • access, process and store massive amounts of data in one place
  • use additional processing and storage space
  • create faster and better analyses
  • easily communicate with the service provider
  • implement your service into our Terrascope framework

TerraFlood: Near-real time flood monitoring with Sentinel data

During this webinar, Lisa Landuyt explained how Sentinel satellite data and other EO services, available in Terrascope, were combined to develop TerraFlood, a tool for near-real time flood monitoring. The methodology was developed in collaboration with the Flemish Environmental Agency (VMM) and was also used to map the devastating floods that hit Belgium in the summer of 2021. View this webinar and learn more about:

  • Sentinel-1 and its potential for water quality monitoring 
  • TerraFlood flood mapping algorithm
  • Flood maps and derived products available through Terrascope

Webinar 7 December 2021

Monitoring very slow construction motion

Monitoring infrastructures subject to small motions is very expensive and time-consuming. By using Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) techniques, we can monitor man-made structures like bridges over time and obtain subsidence time-series. In this webinar Yves Impens and Mehrdad Moshtaghi will explain more about bridge monitoring requirements and InSAR time-series using Sentinel-1 data from Terrascope.

  • Bridge monitoring in Flanders
  • InSAR method and use cases
  • Deformation time-series over bridges

Webinar 9 November 2021

Monitoring water quality with satellites and drones

In view of the water-quality related products that will be made available via Terrascope later this year, Liesbeth De Keukelaere and Els Knaeps explain more about monitoring water quality with satellite data and demonstrate a drone-based processing workflow to visualize water bodies like a river, lake or coastal area. View this webinar to find out more about the data and how to access the end-user products:

  • Water-quality products in Terrascope
  • Use cases based on satellite data
  • MAPEO Water: a drone-based data processing workflow to visualize water bodies
  • Use cases based on drone data

Webinar 26 October 2021

Sentinel data supports automatic monitoring of redevelopment sites!

During this webinar you will discover how Sentinel satellite data and EO services, available in Terrascope, were used to develop an online tool to automatically monitor redevelopment sites. The developed methodology has been applied to a multitude of sites spread over the Walloon region in Belgium. Sophie Petit  demonstrated how remote sensing can support urban planning and explained more about:

  • Handling Sentinel data in Terrascope 
  • Implementing a technical workflow for change detection and classification
  • Alternative environment in Terrascope for extensive data
  • Benefits for urban planning and other applications
