A large diversity of remote sensing training for ecology and conservation exists and such trainings are increasingly offered. All remote sensing trainings have different approaches, use different data sets and have different audience. However, their results, lesson-learnt and approaches are rarely reported. Therefore there is a need to review and discuss the past and future… Read More
