Introduction to openEO for Cloud-based Geoprocessing

Do you want to attend the workshop?

This training workshop, organized by the Center of Expertise in Big Geodata Science (CRIB), is designed to enhance your skills and understanding of the openEO ecosystem. openEO focuses on creating a standardized, open-source interface to simplify the access and processing of Earth observation (EO) data across various cloud backends. By developing a common API, openEO allows users to explore and analyze vast amounts of EO data without worrying about the underlying complexities of the cloud processing environments. The workshop is aimed at all researchers and students who wish to leverage openEO’s capabilities for creating and managing interoperable EO data processing workflows.

The workshop covers the following aspects:

Participants must have access to a computer with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system that they have administrative privileges on. 


6 June 2024, 9:00 - 16:00 (one-day workshop)


ITC Building, Room LA 2213
Hallenweg 8, 7522 NH Enschede


The participants must have a prior understanding of Python to perform exercises during the workshop. Familiarity with geospatial data is a plus.


Registration is required to attend the workshop, which is open to all UT staff and students

The capacity is limited to 25 people. In case of more registrations, the participants will be selected based on the balance between staff and students, with priority given to ITC staff and students.

Registration is closed.
