UN-SPIDER Updates December 2018

Dear readers,

We're glad to share with you the December 2018 UN-SPIDER Monthly Updates.

Our latest Data Application of the Month discusses how differential Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Interferometry (InSAR), referred to as DInSAR, is used to map land deformation, for instance in the case of earthquakes.

Below the updates, you'll also find an events calendar with upcoming conferences, workshops and seminars organized by the community. If you're interested in training opportunities, make sure to visit our external training opportunities overview page, where you'll find links to third-party onsite as well as online courses.

Enjoy the read!
