AbstractGlobeSAR-2 is a training, technology transfer, and applications development program, focussing of RADARSAT, being conducted in 11 countries in Latin America. The program is led by the Canada Centre for Remote Sensing (CCRS) with the South American portion of the program funded by the Canadian International Develpment Agency (CIDA). the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is supporting the Central American portion. RADARSAT International Inc. (RSI), PCI, and Atlantis Scientific are private sector partners in GlobeSAR-2. The program goal is: 1) to enhance the resource management capabilities in the participating countries through demonstration and training of radar remote sensing, in particular RADARSAT, and 2) to demonstrate the value of RADARSAT applications for improved natural resource and environmental monitoring and planning, promote the integration of RADARSAT information into each country's ongoing programs and projects, and help to establish and enhance the radar remote sensing capacity in each of the participating countires, in particular the integration of RADARSAT with other data. This paper will briefly describe the GlobeSAR-2 program, highlight the training approach being implemented for the program, and provide an overview of the variety of applications in each participating country.
