Welcome to Earth Observation workshop by Geoportti!

Are you working or want to work with Earth Observation (EO) data?

Did you maybe even reach the limits of what your own computer can do when working with EO data?

Want to meet like-minded people?

Join us for an afternoon workshop on 16.05 in Viiki/online to:

  • get started using EO data
  • get to know CSC resources for processing and storing EO data
  • hear what others are doing (CSC-EO user-stories)
  • discuss with like-minded researchers and EO- and CSC- professionals


None, but have an interest in Earth Observation and processing/analyzing large amount of data on supercomputer or in the cloud

Learning outcomes

Basics of processing, analyzing and storing EO data using CSC resources, get to know other people working with Earth Observation
