UN-SPIDER Updates January 2019

Dear readers,

We're glad to share with you the January 2019 UN-SPIDER Monthly Updates.

Our latest Data Application of the Month provides a short overview of existing web mapping tools for flood monitoring. We also expanded our portofolio of step-by-step procedures on mapping hazards - our so-called Recommended Practices - by adding information about how to map burn severity with Landsat 8 and Sentinel-2 data in Google Earth Engine.

Below the updates, you'll also find an events calendar with upcoming conferences, workshops and seminars organized by the community. If you're interested in training opportunities, make sure to visit our external in-person training opportunities and online training opportunities overview pages.

Enjoy the read!
