About the workshop

This short course is designed for those who would like to know what free satellite data is available for use in mineral exploration or other earth observation activities. A brief overview will be given of the various satellite data sets available.

Participants will be guided through how to source, download, and process ASTER, Landsat, and Sentinel 2 imagery and produce RGB images of various spectral bands to enhance features of interest.

Classroom

What we'll cover

We'll explore using this data in various workflows, covering:
