Drones and Data Flight week

Hi all,
For those of you planning on being at IDW the RDA Drone Data Group is
running a flying hackathon the preceding week that I think would be of
interest to some here. We've themed it along: Earth Science, Agriculture,
and Conservation, and are planning on testing sensors and data analytics
tools over some novel flora and fauna biomes, and working on the broader
drone-data management questions. See the webpage
for more information
and the application form but in brief
*When:* October 28 to Friday, November 2, 2018.

AgriGHG Conference in Berlin, attending this week?

Dear colleagues,
Is anybody attending the AgriGHG 2018 meeting (International conference on
agricultural GHG emissions and food security) in Berlin, Germany this week? I
would be very interested to meet up and discuss agricultural data sharing
and IGAD as connected to GHG emissions and Food Security.
all the best,
