Invitation to Open Land Use Webinar

In this webinar, we will introduce you two challenges of the Agrihub INSPIRE Hackathon 2022, namely Challenge #8 How to use and improve OLU 2.0 and Challenge #7 OLU4Africa. It’s because these two challenges will cooperate closely on their goals. The broad goal of the CH8 is to enhance the established Open Land Use (OLU) 2.0 database with other thematic datasets and/or with data from different regions. That is where a goal of CH7 comes into play, which is to improve a second version of Open Land Use map for Africa primarily with ESA World Cover data. 

During the webinar, we briefly present OLU 2.0, its capabilities and the way how to use it. Then, we present some already done use cases from Africa or China, while the open questions for the hackathon will be stated.

The webinar is scheduled on 6/05 at 10 AM CEST.
