The Tanzania Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH), in partnership with the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar (RGoZ), has launched an initiative to produce detailed aerial imagery maps of the islands of Zanzibar. The cooperative project is called the Zanzibar Mapping Initiative (ZMI). This initiative has drawn global attention because the mapping is done entirely with drones; the ability to map is now available widespread at a local level. The maps produced are of exceptional spatial resolution. Additionally, their free and open source data sets includes a comprehensive compilation of available vector and raster data covering the whole of Tanzania. Users can find not only aerial imagery produced from drones, but everything from census data to land use layers. More information can be found on the ZMI project website: http://www.zanzibarmapping.com/

ESA's Earth Observation Thematic Exploitation Platform (TEP) is a browser for satellite imagery and specific products on an environmental topic. The TEP platforms are divided into 7 categories: Coastal; Forstry; Geohazards; Hydrology; Polar; Urban; and Food Security. Each platform is a collaborative, virtual work environment providing access to EO data and the tools, processors and Information and Communication Technology resources required to work with them. TEP aims to bridge the gap between the users and the data and tools.

The World Water Quality Information and Capacity Building Portal (IIWQ) is a webmap that illustrates data on turbidity, chlorophyll-a, total absorption as well as the EOMAP specific harmful algal bloom indicator (HAB indicator). Where access to in-situ data is available station values are presented.

This webinar provides the basics of image processing for oil spill mapping. It demonstrates how to access the RUS Service and how to download, process, analyse and visualize the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites. The ESA SNAP Sentinel-1 Toolbox will be employed to demonstrate the methodology to map an area affected by this type of pollution.

A course from EUMETSAT and the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service/ECMWF. During the course you will discover the space, air and ground-based technologies we use to monitor and forecast the atmosphere by exploring how we observe and measure the atmosphere with satellites, ground-based and other forms of in-situ measurements, understanding the importance of satellite observations and other forms of measurements for atmospheric monitoring, investigating how atmospheric data is used in policy and decision-making, in a range of arenas, in conjunction with models and recognising the importance of the data for monitoring long-range transportation of pollutants in the atmosphere. You will explore the critical threats affecting the atmosphere and its composition - and how these affect human health, climate change and the ecosystem. You will also see how this all informs policy and international agreements, plus the extensive work needed to predict change and maintain air quality.
