These extreme weather caused by climate change are affecting to not only natural environment but also human environment.
This summer school is a collaborative program among the ISPRS, ISPRS SC, Geoscience & Digital Earth Centre (INSTeG), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia that aims to build the capacities of students and young researchers in the field of remote sensing, photogrammetry and geospatial information sciences.
The ISPRS SC’s first webinar is an introduction to one of the many platforms available to the scientific community today – Google Earth Engine. Google Earth Engine is “a platform for petabyte-scale scientific analysis and visualization of geospatial datasets, both for public benefit and for business and government users.” It utilizes Google’s massive computational capabilities, giving developers, storytellers, scientists and explorers a bigger chance to understand this planet we live in, and yes, to get creative!
The fourth edition of the “IEEE/GRSS-Young Professionals & ISPRS WG V/5 and SC Summer School”, will be held on October 29 - November 1 in Campo Grande, MS, Brazil, with the theme: UAV Photogrammetry and Machine Learning Applications: Emerging Trends and Challenges for Earth Observation.
In accordance with the statutory mission and activities of ISPRS, the Society shall provide funds to support scientific and other initiatives, which will further improve its international status in the field of the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences, and will therefore benefit all ISPRS members.
