EARSeL is a scientific network of European remote sensing institutes, coming from both academia and the commercial/industrial sector. The 39th annual EARSeL Symposium - subtitled "DIGITAL | EARTH | OBSERVATION" - will explore the challenges and opportunities of recent technical transformations in Earth Observation. It will address topics such as big data, machine learning, data cubes, cloud processing, Copernicus missions and many more... Researchers from DIGITAL and their science partners are presenting results from recent EO projects in poster sessions and oral presentations.
