SPOT(Take5) talks and posters at Living Planet Symposium

The SPOT(Take5) project had a one day session at the living planet symposium ! If it looked nice when we decided it, it turned out that it was not a true good idea. Most of the LPS 2016 sessions were thematic sessions (forest, agriculture, coasts, inland waters...), while the SPOT (Take5) sessions were jumping from one theme to the other. If overall we have reached much more than one hundred people, people kept getting in and out of the room depending on the themes. The session was named "lessons learned from the SPOT (Take5) experiment", and this is clearly one of the lessons we learned.


However, we had high quality presentations, and very good application examples worth spreading. To give this objectively wonderful project a little more deserved exposure, I have tried to gather most of the slides presented at the LPS to show them here. I may have missed some of the presentations, or some of the presenters might have missed my email asking for the slides. You can still send your presentation, and I will update the post.
