Earth Observation for Inventory Webinars (29th Feb 2016) by Jagadeesh Yeluripati

A series of webinars are being held to share the outcomes of the UK-led project on Scoping the

data could fulfil some of these requirements. The international stocktake also gathered information on experiences

of using EO for inventory compilation and addressed whether such approaches represent cost saving against

existing survey methods.

Webinar objectives

 Share the outcomes of the international stocktake on inventory activity data requirements and potential

and existing uses of EO (as well as perceptions of EO);

 Identify opportunities for collaboration and capacity building;

 Share details of international case studies on use of EO in inventory compilation and the results of a novel

UK case study;

 An overall objective is to facilitate information sharing between inventory practitioners, EO specialists ...
