Join the African "GEONETCast-Community"

During the ISPRS TC-VI special sessions on education and outreach a presentation was given on "the potentials of GEONETCast for Distance Education in EO in Africa".

In order that not all new GEONETCast users have to develop their own educational materials for training and outreach a more effective method would be to join forces and develop appropriate training materials together, coupled with distance education based support. The developed educational materials and data sets used can be merged to provide a set of comprehensive training materials that can be used by all partners in the community.

Various organizations and universities in Africa have already indicated their interest.
