NEXUS 2nd Technical Training @ Mandalay 14.03.2019

Jonathan C-W Chan is coordinating the Erasmus + Capacity Building for Higher Education project NEXUS (Nodes of Excellence in SEA Universities through Spatial Data 2018-2020). From 25-28 Feb. 2019, the 2nd Technical Training was delivered at Mandalay Technological University, Remote Sensing Department. New equipment support by the NEXUS project were installed and utilized first time. The training focused on characterization of urban areas using satellite images and drone-based acquisitions. Training topics include machine learning algorithms and novel object-based feature extraction methods drone-based 3D modelling recent research in social-economic growth of cities using spatial data. The training has been completed exceeding expectations.

Special Issue REMOTE SENSING journal 14.03.2019

Hyperspectral Earth Observation missions are slated to launch in the next decades. As global coverage of hyperspectral images is unprecedented, we still have very few knowledge about this kind of big data. Same as Deep Learning based algorithms for hyperspectral analyses. While so much has been reported in published literature, there are still so much we don't know about ANN inspired Deep Learning. As such, a new Special Issue in Remote Sensing journal has been organized by Jonathan C-W Chan to further our knowledge in these aspects.
