Vesc 2017 fieldwork has come to an end! A lot of works was achieved by the 2nd year Bsc TU Delft students with their supervisors.

Some numbers to summarize: 48 students working during 3 weeks in France (Vercors & Drome region) + some more back in Delft on analyzing the geological formations and Sentinel-2 satellite data, 16 land cover final classification maps produced, many more maps analysing vegetation seasonal cycles and the impacts of cloud contamination, more than 1600 GPS waypoints collected for identifying reference land cover classes, 16 GPS elevation maps compared with satellite remote sensing, 32 final reports delivered (Acquisition and Integration reports)!

One thing is sure: the TU Delft students achieved a huge amount of works with great quality. Congratulations and many thanks to them for their efforts! And thanks also to my professor colleagues for their supports (Dr. Roderik Linderbergh, Dr. Jan Kees Blom, Dr. Hemmo Abels & Dr. Joep Storms).

Let’s hope for the same for the next Vesc 2018 campaign!
