Data for Climate Action win!

Tue, 2017-11-14 10:36 -- 01403001

Congratulations to Jasper and his team, who won one of the 3 thematic awards at the Data for Climate Action (D4CA) challenge award ceremony at COP23!

D4CA is a competition under the UN Global Pulse programme. Teams were asked to "use big data and data science to catalyse action on climate change". There were 97 teams involved so to be among the winning ones is a great achievement.

The team's submission developed a tool for detecting vegetation changes in near real-time. You can read more about the approach here.

The submission was led by Jasper, Adam Wilson and Glenn Moncrieff, with contributions from a number of other SEEC people - Zaza, Etienne, and Vernon. Well done to everyone!
