The MAESTRIA project will organize workshops related to large scale land-cover mapping during the 2019-2022 period in order to collect users’ expectations, validate choices and identify remaining challenges.
This first one-day meeting will be held on 3rd December 2019 in Paris and its main objective is to gather international land-cover experts from several organizations (ESA, JRC, universities and private companies) which have been working with and generating land-cover maps users for a long time. The specific goals of this first meeting will be to collect complementary points of view, share recent achievements and identify remaining challenges.
