Greenhood Nepal have successfully conducted the training, “Remote Sensing in GIS”, from 8 to 14 April. The main theme of this training was to provide hands on practice of applying remote sensing in GIS platforms. The training was divided into two sessions of three days each.
In first three days, participants were taught about processing satellite images. Downloading satellite images, doing radiometric and atmospheric correction and preparing composite image were the key highlights. In second session of the training, imagery analysis was done from the composite imagery developed at first session. In this part of the training, participants were taught to develop various indices from the satellite images. Vegetation Index, Water Index, Building Index were some key indices developed. Similarly, landuse and land cover classification was the final part instructed in the training. This classification was done in two methods of supervised and unsupervised classifications along with validation techniques.
In last day of the training all the activities were revised with some project works. Then certificate of participation was distributed to each participant.
