FOSS4G:UK workshop details

On 8th March I gave a workshop on satellite data processing at FOSS4G:UK in London. This post details that you’ll need to know before attending the workshop, and post-workshop if you want the instruction sheet 🙂

For this workshop you need to have downloaded the datasets provided online. This is really important, because there is about 1GB of imagery to download, and it will take too long to do this (and will cripple the WiFi) if you wait until the workshop.


The data file will stay available until early April 2018 when I will remove it to free up my online drive.

The slides that I presented can be accessed using this link: These are to provide some context to the ideas and terms that are introduced in the workshop.

The instruction sheet for the workshop is here:

You will also need a working version of QGIS with the Semi-Automatic Classification Plugin and Zonal Statistics plugin installed and working. This workshop has been tested on QGIS 2.18 on a Mac, and the same software on a Windows 10 machine (installed using the OSGEO4W installer). From experience at the workshop, we now know that this does work on QGIS 3, but has some issues on QGIS 2.14.

If you have any questions, please use the comments to this post.

  1. Great workshop. Will you be making the slides available as well? I felt they helped put what we were doing in a better context. Thanks.

    1. Yes. I will make the slides and instruction document available through this blog post, and will keep the data available for a while too. If you have any questions or queries about the workshop, the data or remote sensing in general then ping me a message and I’ll do my best to answer it.
