Workshop on vicarious infrastructure

21 - 23 February 2017

Organisation: European Space Agency (ESA)

Location: ESA-ESRIN - Frascati, Italy

Conference overview:

The objective of this workshop is to gather experts in the different fields involved in vicarious adjustment and open a wide range debate on the best way to go for future long term vicarious infrastructure.


The Copernicus programme represents a major evolution of Ocean Colour Radiometry (OCR). Going operational with the S3 OLCI series provides the guarantee of a continuous flow of consistent products. OCR relies on vicarious adjustments to ensure accuracy on geophysical products. To make sure the best possible product is delivered to users, ESA is organising an international workshop from 21 – 23 February 2017 to evaluate options for future European satellite OCR vicarious adjustment infrastructure for Sentinel-3 OLCI and Sentinel-2 MSI series.

Overview of the Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System (GDACS)

21 February 2017

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Location: Online training/webinar

Conference overview:

Up-to-date and accessible information is essential to providing an effective, coordinated response to disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, and tropical storms. The Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System (GDACS) provides near real-time data, alerts, and impact assessments that can be accessed online.

The interactive website integrates coordination tools with maps and satellite imagery relevant to an event, including NASA satellite imagery and MODIS-based flood mapping from the Dartmouth Flood Observatory. In this two-hour webinar, participants will learn how they can use GDACS to monitor real-time disasters, assess the impacts of an event, and develop response strategies for both national and international events.

The training will include a presentation, followed by a demonstration of GDACS features and a case study with step-by-step instructions for obtaining satellite images, alerts, and crisis management information using GDACS.
