You can finish this course spending 3 - 4 hours in 1 week to finish. Your focused attention will pay off in the end!
If anything seems unclear or you just have a question, then please let me know - I will get back to you as soon as possible, usually less then 24 hours. After each lecture you have place to ask questions. Again, thank you for joining me on this course.
This is an example of a processed satellite image from the Sentinel 2, greener color represents healthier crops. Pivot circles can be seen in the picture and not so healthy area that will produce less crop yield.

More than 20 years in the field of water and environment, specialist in quantitative hydrogeology applying his knowledge on projects in Europe, US, Middle East, Australia and Africa. Uncertainty analysis of groundwater models is his another specialization. One of top success was mentoring one of the top world Australian Mining Company in using specialized techniques of mathematical model calibration and uncertainty analysis with PEST.
His Ph.D. was done on the topic of groundwater remediation. On the Middle East he was working on a capital project where a huge database was established (more than 500 observation points).
Business Development and Marketing
Working from Serbia he manages to set up brand acknowledged on Geological Survey of UnitedStates Meeting in 2019/ as an example of how brand can be setup from distant country. Also, he organizeThe first online Conference Groundwater Science and Practice was organized in 2018. Proud to say that he become one of the moderators of the LinkedIn Groundwater Modeling Forum with 7000 members along with several university professors. Also, he raised 100000 USD for his Start-Up. Another Start-Up is currently under development.
Coaching other companies and their engineers
First started with 1 on 1 courses throughout the world (mostly USA) continuing with Environmental Science Education Program with 900 participants.Topics were Water Resources Management, Remote Sensing and Seawater Intrusion. He was accepted at The John's Hopkins University for online specialization in 2018 where he attended one semester of Air Resources Monitoring and Management. Due to catastrophic air pollution in his native country he stopped his specialization on JHU and devoted his time to mitigation of indoor pollution with a top company in that arena. He was again accepted to continue his specialization in JHU in 2020. As one of greatest achievement was invitation to train The John's Hopkins University Ph.D. student in interpretation of Mars geology. Due to COVID-19, the project was postponed by NASA.
Also, at beginning of 2020 he was elected to be a reviewer of The Book Coastal Hydrogeology for US journal.
During his consulting practices he was working with Roscoe Moss and arena of Aquifer Storage and Recovery with one of the fouder of that coin Davide Pyne for several years.
He published over 20 scientific papers in his native language and the first one in English at MODFLOW Conference 1998. Also, published a book about Mathematical Modeling and Remediation that is currently under translation in English.
Sensors in Natural Resources
First started as his hobby after which his passion for electronics in environmental field was expanded and currently, he is writing a book on sensors application in natural resources.
By lunching of the Sentinel 2 satellite in 2016 he become interested in remote sensing and its application in water resources and agriculture. Did numerous projects in Agriculture and for big agriculture companies, the largest 10000 ha)
His integrated knowledge of different disciplines in environmental science enabled him to develop a specific approach for managing natural resources (monitoring, modeling and remote sensing). Also, developing techniques for the determination of mineral resources from satellites was considered by several companies.

What our Clients Say About Us
He is always available for questions and truly goes above and beyond in his training classes. I have gained a lot of knowledge over a short period of time working with Dragan and would highly recommend his services to others.”
- Thomas Ballard, PG, CHG, Consulting Hydrogeologist, USA
I took multiple training courses with Dragan. I learned a great deal with him during each of the courses. He is an excellent teacher willing to help out in any way possible.
- Mark Sherrill, Environmental Scientist at Short Elliott Hendricson, USA
I have known Dragan for many years. I am most impressed with his
dedication to hard work, and the breadth of his knowledge on
environmental data acquisition and processing, software, and modelling.
- John Doherty Owner, Watermark Numerical Computing, Australia
"I recently completed a course in Remote Sensing and QGIS with Dragan. He was very knowledgeable and guided me through the theory and background and also the implementation of remote sensing. He was very personable and happy to answer all my questions. I appreciate having him as a reference and would recommend him to anyone interested in this topic."
