New resources for African users are now available online.

The ASMET (African Satellite Meteorology Education and Training) project produces online learning lessons that teach African forecasters how to enhance their forecasts by making better use of meteorological satellite images and products. The lessons are produced by the ASMET team, which consists of meteorology instructors from the South African Weather Service (SAWS) (Pretoria), the Institute for Meteorological Training and Research (IMTR/TRC) (Kenya), EAMAC/ASECNA (Niger), DNM (Morocco), and staff from EUMETSAT (Germany) and The COMET® Program (UCAR, USA).

Eumetsat renews commitment to GEO

EUMETSAT’s main contribution to the GEO Strategic Plan 2016–2025 will be through the GEONETCast initiative and, as a member of the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS), the provision of satellite data.

IMPACT: Portable GIS Toolbox for image processing and land cover mapping

Did you ever try to produce a reliable land cover map from Earth Observation data? How many steps are involved and how many different tools do you need? Did you succeed in a reasonable amount of time? IMPACT toolbox offers a combination of elements of remote sensing, photo interpretation and processing technologies in a portable and stand-alone GIS environment.

Three EU Horizon 2020 calls on Earth Observation opened

On November, 10th the submission session to three H2020 calls on Earth Observation was opened. The topics of the calls are:

PCI Geomatics and CONABIO Reveal Mexico Country Mosaic at the Latin America Geospatial Forum

NASA, USAID Launch Environmental Information Hub

NASA and the US Agency for International Development (USAID) have released a joint project to strengthen regional natural recognition in five countries in the lower Mekong region of Southeast Asia.

Track Ocean Currents from Space

A team of NASA and university scientists has developed a new way to use satellite measurements to track changes in Atlantic Ocean currents, which are a driving force in global climate. The finding opens a path to better monitoring and understanding of how ocean circulation is changing and what the changes may mean for future climate.

New report offers NASA framework for establishing priorities among Earth observations

WASHINGTON — A new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine offers NASA a framework for prioritizing satellite observations and measurements of Earth based on their scientific value.
