Second User Training Session


The Sen2-Agri Second User Training Session was held as a side event of the ESA Living Planet Symposium 2016 and took place in Prague, Czech Republic between May 12 and 14, 2016.

The session consisted in a mix of lectures, demonstrations and hands-on training aiming at developing the skills of the attendees for a more efficient use of the Sen2-Agri system and of the derived products in combination with external tools such as SNAP or QGIS.
