June 13 – 18. 2022


After Split (2014), Thessaloniki (2015), Chania (2016), Dubrovnik (2017), Prague (2018) and Bolzano (2019), SPLITRS is taking us to Zadar, Croatia. Once again, an intensive learning remote sensing program for professionals and graduate students will be offered at a great location. ZADAR is home to a historic old town of Roman ruins, medieval churches, cosmopolitan cafes and quality museums set on a small peninsula. Zadar is an intriguing city.


Registration is NOW OPEN!


Keynote Speaker: Roger Tokars, NASA  – NASA Airborne Science Program for monitoring algal blooms and surface water quality.

SPLITRS 2020 in Zadar, Croatia
Co-organizer: University of Zadar, Department of Geography


SPLITRS is an intensive and advanced learning event, which presents best insights into most recent techniques learned from top international professors and researchers through hands-on sessions and lectures. Participants learn about different remote sensing applications using UAS (drone), LiDAR sensors, SAR, and various RS software.

To attend SPLITRS, it is not required to have comprehensive knowledge of remote sensing, but basic understanding is recommended. Participants are expected to attend and follow the whole event to receive the Certificates of Completion.

SPLITRS is a non-profit school. All profits go to students in need.

University of Zadar

Zadar has a centuries-old university tradition, the longest in Croatia: following the tradition of ecclesiastical education, first mentioned in the 10th century, a Dominican higher education institution Studium generale, later known as the Universitas Iadertina, was founded as early as 14 June 1396. The town of Zadar was not chosen as a university centre by chance: at the time, it flourished as the most important naval point in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, where the seats of governmental institutions were situated, including the seat of the Austro-Hungarian Ban and the Hungarian-Croatian War Navy.


Zadar, a city on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, is known for the Roman and Venetian ruins of its peninsular Old Town. There are several Venetian gates in the city walls. Surrounding the Roman-era Forum is 11th-century St. Mary’s Convent, with religious art dating to the 8th century. There’s also the grand, 12th-century St. Anastasia’s Cathedral and the round, 9th-century pre-Romanesque Church of St. Donatus.
