Remote sensing in development cooperation

Online tutorials and massive open online courses

Obtain free initial insights into remote sensing

Besides universities, the use and analysis of remote sensing data can primarily be learned in training courses. In addition to specialised remote sensing companies, a range of tutorials and massive open online courses (MOOC) are available on the internet.

While they cannot replace years of training and expertise in remote sensing, they provide initial practical experience to enable a better assessment of the potential of own projects. The following provides an overview of free, generally English offers on the internet.​

Training sessions for beginners without prior knowledge of remote sensing

The following offers are suitable for interested parties without prior experience in remote sensing and provide a clear overview of the basic principles of remote sensing as well as conveying possible applications.

Training sessions for beginners interested in specific fields of application

How can remote sensing be used for specific questions? The following offers provide an initial response. The following offers are suitable for professionals without any prior experience in remote sensing, but we recommend having at least completed one of the aforementioned introductory tutorials.

Offers for advanced users with an interest in more detailed aspects of the technology

How do I use radar remote sensing, what are the benefits compared to other systems? How can I use cloud computing methods and implement initial projects? How do I use remote sensing to support MRV in the context of REDD+? You can find out more about these questions and more detailed aspects of the technology here.
