Remote-sensing toepassingen in het waterbeheer

On March 29, 2019, NCR organised a theme day on remote sensing in water management at Rijkswaterstaat in Utrecht for more than 30 participants. A variety of actual and potential airborne and satellite remote sensing applications were addressed in the presentations such as general change detection, vegetation monitoring in streams and floodplains, soil moisture and inundation and water quality. The final presentation was on the implementation of remote sensing data in operational water management. The day was closed with a discussion on the current experience and demands of the audience related to remote sensing and a short demonstration of Google Earth Engine. We look back to a successful and inspiring day.

The presentations are now online. The language of the day was Dutch, hence some of the presentations are also in Dutch.
