The “World of Water” is a 3D, temporally integrated spatial complexity interacting deeply with societal issues. Despite the spatial domain of water being understood centuries ago, the realization was only possible after developing GIS & Remote Sensing techniques. Today, petabytes of water-related spatial data are placed online every single day. You may not know, but what you need might be already available and alive even in areas of data scarcity right now.

This course is an eye-opener giving you access to that information. You learn it in an integrated manner by exposure to both instruments using educational techniques developed after 75 years of international education in the subject. The course has two parts, and water is the common factor. In the first part, the GIS week, participants operate spatial data to produce custom-made outputs serving as inputs to hydro-models and as tools in decision-making. The second part, Earth Observation week, deals with the access, acquisition and evaluation of water-related data and product from satellite imagery needed in temporal evolution studies. In this way, you are exposed to the whole picture of temporal and spatial analysis required in the Water Sector.
