Enabling the public sector to save money, innovate and make more effective policy decisions by using space technology and data

Training

SSGP is committed to raising awareness of how space data and services can help the UK public sector, and it is currently identifying training opportunities within the civil service to set in place the right support foundations.

Below is a non-exhaustive list of free and paid for training courses and/or materials. For further information about any of these courses, please click on the + sign. A brief overview of satellite capability for different sectors can be found here

If you are aware of a training course and would like to see it included in the list, email the SSGP team on ssgp@ukspaceagency.bis.gsi.gov.uk.

Learn how the Greenland ice sheet is monitored from space and the ground, to understand our past, present and future climate.
This guide aims to help non-experts in providing a starting point in the decision process for selecting an appropriate EO solution.
The first MOOC on radar remote sensing learning, not only about how radar images are created, but how to interpret them.
In this webinar, you will learn the basics of image processing for burned area mapping: you will be shown how to access the RUS service and how to download, process, analyse and visualise the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites constellation.
In this webinar, you will learn the basics of image processing for flood mapping: you will be shown how to access the RUS service and how to download, process, analyse and visualise the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites constellation.
The main goal of this training session is to create theoretical and practical competences on the use of Sentinel data for Land Cover Land Use (LCLU) monitoring (i.e. mapping and change detection) and for forest fires related applications (e.g. fire risk and burned area mapping).
In this webinar you will learn the basics of image processing for ship detection: you will be shown how to access the RUS service and how to download, process, analyse and visualise the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites constellation.
