Workshop on Land Product Validation and Evolution

27/02/2018 to 01/03/2018
Frascati (Rome)

The 2018 Workshop on Land Product Validation and Evolution (LPVE 2018) will be held at ESA/ESRIN (Magellan Room) on 27 February - 1 March 2018.


Following the success of LPVE 2014, the European Space Agency is inviting scientists and Cal/Val experts to present the latest results from their on-going research, including the evolution of products, the latest development in validation, the inter-comparison methodologies and the evolution of algorithms.


The workshop intends to address the following objectives:

  • Provide an overview on current land product Cal/Val approaches and protocols and their evolution;
  • Revisit existing calibration and validation protocols and standards in the light of newly available satellite data, including Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3;
  • Present land product inter-comparison methodologies (in situ, satellite-satellite);
  • Discuss data harmonisation approaches across sensors;
  • Identify key recommendations for ESA land product algorithm evolution;
  • Formulate recommendations for future land products and future Cal/Val activities;
  • Encourage close collaboration between Cal/Val and research groups.
