Masters students at the WASCAL “Climate Change and Adapted Land Use” program at FUT Minna, Nigeria.

For the first time we visited Nigeria this year in April. In the capital of the Niger State Minna the WASCAL Masters Program on “Climate Change and Adapted Land Use” is based at the Federal University of Technology (FUT Minna).  Besides some fundamentals on Remote Sensing theories the major topic of this one week course was the (pre-) processing and classification of Remote Sensing data using the IDRISI Selva software package. Finally we performed a change analysis on tree cover in a ten years period in northern Ghana.
