The Indian Institute of Remote Sensing Applications (IIRS) and Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) are together organizing a One Day Online Workshop on SAR application for Flood Hazard Mapping Monitoring from July 14, 2021.
Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) under Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Department of Space, Govt. of India is a premier Training and Educational Institute set up for developing trained professionals in the field of Remote Sensing, Geoinformatics and GNSS Technology for Natural Resources, Environmental, and Disaster Management.
The online workshop is the latest addition to the IIRS distance learning activities. This online workshop is being organized for highlighting the potential of microwave remote sensing data for flood hazard mapping and monitoring. The all-weather capability and day and night time imaging from microwave SAR sensor systems has emerged as one of the major support for mapping and monitoring dynamic events like flood hazards.
The focus of the workshop will be appraising participants about the basic concepts and terminologies, accessing data and software using open sources including processing and analyzing of SAR data through case studies and demonstrations.
This online workshop will cover following topics:
- Overview and basic concepts of SAR
- SAR application for flood hazard mapping
- Access to SAR data and processing S/W
- Processing of SAR data
- SAR based flood hazard mapping
The workshop will help the professionals from Central/ State Govt./ Private Organizations/ NGO engaged in flood hazard management to better understand the basics concepts of SAR, accessibility of SAR data, open-source software tools and platforms for processing and mapping of flood hazard.
