Wednesday 19 February, UNOSAT launched a new online course entitled “Geospatial Information Technology (GIT) in Fragile Contexts” developed under the scope of this project.
The course is free and open for anyone who wants to know more about the use of GIT in countries that are affected by fragility. It is organized in a short introductory format designed to convey essential concepts with great utility. You can access it here.
Can earth observation satellites be used to work on population displacements, remote reconstruction projects, natural disasters or artisanal and small-scale gold mining? The course will give you answers to these questions, and to many others.
Participants will receive a UNITAR certificate upon completion.
