WP2 - Land Use and Biogeophysical Information
In this work package, remote sensing using satellite imagery and airborne remote sensing data will be applied for land cover mapping and change detection. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) will be used for deriving geospatial datasets for remote sensing data processing, and for modelling the ecological, agricultural and hydrological variables.
Appropriate infrastructure (hardware and software) and the skills for geospatial data processing are required for remote sensing and GIS, data management, analysis and linking up the outcomes with climate change. Both infrastructure and skills are currently inadequate in the region. This WP will build capacity for such work and develop the geospatial datasets needed in the other WPs.
