Remote Sensing

Cameroon - National Training course

In 2011 UN-SPIDER carried out a Technical Advisory Mission in order to assess the potential of space-based information in responding to these hazards.

Date: 
05/05/2012 - 09/05/2012
Title of Training: 
Remote Sensing for Disaster Management
Trainers: 
Experts from Regional Centre for Training in Aerospace Surveys (RECTAS) and the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS)
Target Group: 
Some 25 participants from DPC/MINETAD and representatives various other ministries and universities attended the training. In addition, 7 participants from other Central Africa states (Burundi, Congo, DR Congo, Gabon) participated.
Training Profile: 
The training was conducted in French language using software donated by Esri (ArcGIS 10 French) and the ILWIS Academic version. The group had access to recent very high resolution Quickbird sample images over hotspots in Cameroon, courtesy of Digital Globe, Inc. The training covered basic elements of remote sensing, GIS basics and simple data extraction and geo-referencing techniques, accompanied by various presentations and visual material on use of remote sensing for disaster management.
