Dear HOT friends and colleagues,

the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) has
recently founded the *Capacity Building project* named “Capacity Building
for High-Resolution Land Cover Intercomparison and Validation‚ÄĚ [1]. The
main objective of the project is to develop learning material on the
intercomparison and validation of high resolution Land Cover maps, which
especially targets researchers and professionals in developing countries.
This new learning material will be tested in three field workshops (two of
which held in developing countries): in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) with the
support of World Bank, in Nairobi (Kenya) with the support of the Regional
Center for Mapping of Resources for Development, and in Delft (The
Netherlands) within the ISPRS Technical Commission IV Symposium 2018.

In the frame of this initiative, we kindly ask your help to fill two short
questionnaires about:

1) the state of the art in training material on the intercomparison and
validation of Land Cover maps, where we ask you to indicate available
learning resources on the intercomparison and validation of Land Cover
maps. The questionnaire is available at
If you are not aware of any of these resources, switch directly to the
second questionnaire.

2) the Requirements and use cases for Land Cover maps production and
validation, where we assess the awareness about Land Cover maps and ask
about significant use cases/requirements. The questionnaire is available at

We kindly ask to fill the questionnaires before *April 28, 2018*. Filling
each questionnaire requires just a couple of minutes and will be of
invaluable importance to reach the project objectives. Responses from
people working in developing countries will be particularly useful.

Thank you very much for your cooperation,

Marco Minghini
