The guest speaker, talked about the analysis of agricultural crops through the change of machine learning methods and data obtained by satellite missions. The presentation was followed by a discussion with local participants who posed questions to the presenter. Participants were interested on how to access satellite data related to this area of study and in response, Ivan introduced participants to the use of the Sentinel platform.

Participants were encouraged to continue their education of the topic and follow up with links about the InnORBIT project and its offerings.  Ivan also had a list of links which I sent out to participants following the event, so they could learn more about space topics related to his field of specialty.
