SANSA conducted a two day training workshop on "Introduction to Remote Sensing" at the Durban offices of the KwaZulu Natal Cooperative Governance Traditional Affairs (COGTA) on the 20-21 October 2016.
The workshop was attended by eighteen participants from Durban and Pietermaritzburg COGTA offices. The workshop was part of SANSA's initiative to build capacity and develop geo-informatics and remote sensing skills within Government departments.
The COGTA informatics department is one of the recipients of the annual national SPOT imagery mosaic product developed by SANSA. The knowledge acquired at the workshop will help the participants to make the most of satellite data in addition to the widely used backdrop application.
