(11.09.-13.09.2017 – FAO, Rome, Italy)
On 1. January 2015, the ESA Data User Element project GlobBiomass was started for a three year period. After the first two busy project phases, it is time to share and discuss our final results and methodological progress in a 3rd and final GlobBiomass User Workshop.
Until the end of August 2017 the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document will be updated and first validated results from the Global Biomass Mapping Approach will be expected. The Global Mapping System is fitted and the Regional Reference Maps for 2015, 2010 and 2005 including Change Maps will be completed (a preview will be available until end of August 2017 at http://globbiomass.org/products/regional-mapping).
Significant discussion points with users will be the Validation Approach and the dissemination for the Global and Regional Mapping Products.
The 3rd Public User Workshop will take place from 11.09. – 13.09.2017 at FAO in Rome, Italy.
The main scientific objectives of the 3rd User Workshop are:
- Discussion of the 2nd phase deliverables and milestones with external participants and the advisory board, i.e. the Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD); the Regional Mapping Products and the Global Mapping Approach including Validation;
- Receive of the user feedback;
- Bring together new input to improve the already existing documents and products and the final development in the last phase of GlobBiomass.
We are looking forward to your confirmation until 15.08.2017 and would be glad to meet you in Rome.
