Part Two of a three-part training by NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET), “Earth Observations Toolkit for Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements,” that provides an overview of an online knowledge resource that shares ready-to-use Earth observation data sets and tools. Held February 3, 2022, the training, “Applications of the EO Toolkit to Measure and Analyze Sustainable Development Goals,” featured CIESIN postdoctoral research scientist Cascade Tuholske, with JRC's Thomas Kemper, presenting on using gridded data to support the Sustainable Development Goals 11 (“Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable”). An introduction to dataset comparison featured the POPGRID data collaborative Web site and Viewer.
NASA ARSET Training:“Applications of the EO Toolkit to Measure and Analyze Sustainable Development Goals”
This “cyberseminar” offered October 14–18, 2019, focuses on various gridded population and settlement data products and their suitability for different application areas in population-environment studies. Hosted by the Population and Environment Research Network (PERN) and organized by CIESIN and the POPGRID Data Collaborative, which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
This brief video introduction introduces users to the companion data sets Human Built-up and Settlement Extent (HBASE) and Global Man-made Impervious Surface (GMIS), and demonstrates how to use the mapping tool to visualize the data. HBASE and GMIS were produced as a result of a collaboration between the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and the Department of Geographical Sciences at the University of Maryland, funded through the NASA Land Cover Land Use Change Program.
