In view of the rising number of imaging spectrometers deployed on airborne platforms and the launch of space-borne imaging spectroscopy missions, an increasing need for Earth observation education and training activities with a focus on hyperspectral imagery is expected in the next few years.
Therefore, the development of HYPERedu, an online learning platform for hyperspectral remote sensing, has started as part of the education initiative within the EnMAP mission and is hosted on EO College. From September 2019, HYPERedu started to provide annotated slide collections and hands-on tutorials using the open-source EnMAP-Box software, targeting basic principles, methods as well as applications of imaging spectroscopy. The content is continuously extended and will be supplemented with short educational films. In addition, a first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) with several modules and a certificate is being planned for launch in 2021.
All material is provided free of charge (CC-BY) in English at the master’s level, addressing students as well as professionals in research, companies, and public agencies.
