Note: This was a one-time, in-person workshop at SXSW EDU. The session has already occurred, although the materials may be accessed at any time.

NASA has 30+ satellites pointed at Earth collecting data that is is free to the public, and you don’t have to be an expert to use it! NASA conducts free trainings to use this data. And for the first time, we’re bringing that directly to SXSW EDU! Join NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training for an introduction to accessing, interpreting, and applying NASA data on local and global scales, with real-life case studies and opportunities to bring it into the classroom – no experience required.
