GCF Member Technical Training with IPAM, Google & Carnegie
When: Jul 09 - 14, 2012
Where: California, USA
Organized By: GCF
The GCF, the Amazon Environmental Research Institute (IPAM), the Carnegie Institution for Science at Stanford University, the Forum on Readiness for REDD, Woods Hole Research Center, and Google are co-hosting a 6-day Geographic Information Systems (GIS)/Remote Sensing (RS) Workshop (July 9-14, 2012) for a small group of technical experts from Brazil, Indonesia, Peru, Mexico, and Nigeria.
The workshop will familiarize the governmental and civil society representatives with general deforestation monitoring methods (including ClasLite and biomass mapping) and new tools that incorporate these methods (including the Google Earth Engine and Earth Builder applications). Participants will gain expertise that will help them train others to better map and monitor deforestation, degradation, and carbon/biomass stocks in their jurisdictions.
