Workshop: The Potential of Satellite Imagery for Studying Human Activity
We are pleased to announce a workshop on "The potential of satellite imagery for studying human activity", which will take place on the 15th of June, 2018 at Foresight Centre at the University of Liverpool in the Liverpool campus.
The workshop will take place over two days, the 14th and 15th of June, 2018. The first day will provide a hands-on experience exploring publicly-available satellite imagery and using Python tools for download, feature extraction, analysis and visualisation of high-resolution imagery data to capture short- and long-term changes in human activity. The second day will involve a keynote, six 30-minute presentations and a panel discussion.
The workshop is part of a project of the Geographic Data Science Lab at the University of Liverpool to explore the use of satellite imagery to monitor human activity and inform urban planning policy development. This initiative is financially supported by the Centre of Spatial Demographics Research and the University of Liverpool.
