Workshop on Airborne Hyperspectral Remote Sensing at ICAR-IARI, New Delhi [Feb 10-20]: Register by Jan 29

By: Jasmeet | 22 Jan 2020 6:51 PM

The purpose of the training cum workshop is to develop skills and capacity in the use of hyperspectral remote sensing from controlled conditions (laboratory and climate-controlled greenhouse) to field conditions using ground and airborne remote sensing platforms. The technology also has a larger capability in high throughput phenotyping and precision for precision farming.

The program consists of a series of lectures by the eminent experts from India and abroad along with extensive hands-on training. The last day of the training (Feb 20) is planned to have a day workshop on the proposed program inviting many researchers, stakeholders, and policymakers to discuss issues and challenges on Imaging Spectroscopy and UAV remote sensing for making the technology a viable operable option for Plant Phenomics and Precision Agriculture.


Broadly topics covered at the workshop will be:

  1. Principles of Spectroscopy in VNIR and Thermal range,
  2. Imaging spectroscopy,
  3. Sensors,
  4. Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV),
  5. Pre-processing and processing of imaging and non-imaging hyperspectral data,
  6. Collected using platforms at the ground,
  7. UAV and Manned Aerial Vehicle will be demonstrated for processing.
  8. Many potential applications on high throughput phenotyping and precision farming will also be covered.
