The Water Research Commission (WRC) in collaboration with Cap-Net, SANSA, DWA and the European Space Agency is hosting a capacity building and training workshop on 18 – 22 November 2013. There will be about 35 trainees (mainly aquatic scientists and practitioners) from various African countries who will benefit from the training.
The objectives of the Land Cover TCBF training module are to provide trainers with knowledge on how to make best use the TIGER training toolkit for land cover mapping for water management. Upon training on this tool participants should be able to use the material to deliver further training to remote sensing practitioners or water management professionals. Specific objectives of the course are to:
1. Provide insight into the Land Cover Mapping toolkit
2. Provide participants with knowledge on different land cover mapping techniques, including different classification methods including multi-temporal classification, validation, and fieldwork.
3. Through discussion session provide participants with help in implementing such training within the framework of their institution.
The training will include theoretical, practical, fieldwork and discussion components. The outline of the course is provided in the handout document. Contacts
