SPOT4 (Take5) communications at the Sentinel-2 Symposium

The second "Sentinel-2 for science" symposium , organised by ESA, took place in italy late may 2014. More than 400 future Sentinel-2 users participated, which is a record for a conference organised by ESA at ESA premises. Compared to the first Sentinel-2 users workshop, it turns out that most of the talks were based on time series of images, while this proportion was less than a third for the first users symposium (other talks were about spectral indexes, mono date model inversions, which is good science but is not specifically tailored for Sentinel-2). This shows that the Sentinel-2 users community state of preparation did a lot of progress during the two last years.


To this respect, it seems that the SPOT4(Take5) experiment has helped a lot, as at least 15 of the 55 talks (and a lot of posters) of the symposium were largely based on the data set. That was exactly the purpose of the experiment and I am quite please to see it succeeded. The data are still available there, and there are still a lot of things to do.


Here are the links to the 15 talks that use SPOT4 (Take5) data (I may have forgotten one of two, if so please tell me ! I have not found the links to the posters, if someone found them, please tell me !).  You may also access the whole program here (some talks, although not based on SPOT4 (Take5), were also very stimulating ;-) )
