This year will be a year for "Geospatial and Disaster Management" as the theme for the GGT 2018. We have seen various agencies and private entities have engaged with geospatial information systems, applications and services.
The Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society (RSPSoc) and the University of Split, FESB, Split, Croatia, are organising, the 6th International Conference on “Small Unmanned Aerial Systems for Environmental Research”.
The summer school is jointly-organized by ISPRS TC III (Remote Sensing) and Student Consortium (SC). It is sponsored and hosted by Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture (BUCEA).It will be held from May 3 to 6, 2018, just before the ISPRS TC III Midterm Symposium on “Developments, Technologies and Applications in Remote Sensing”. It’s very convenient for the participants of the Summer School to attend the ISPRS TC III midterm symposium.
In July 2017, the 2nd edition of the summer school on close-range sensing techniques in alpine terrain took place at the Obergurgl University Centre (Austria) in the middle of the Alps. The summer school was hosted by the University of Innsbruck, the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the ISPRS. Thirty-nine international early-career scientists worked on selected topics from environmental monitoring in high mountain areas such as rock face mapping, vegetation monitoring, 3D change detection of landslides and rock glaciers, and riverbed erosion.
This year, the 38th Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS 2017) was held in the Ashok Hotel in the green city of New Delhi, India. The conference regularly attracts various researchers, professionals, and students from all over Asia and other parts of the world. Led by AARS Student Group and supported by the ISPRS Student Consortium (ISPRS SC), various student activities were organised on the 25th of October (Day 3) of the ACRS 2017. These activities included the WEBCON 7, the Student Session and the Students’ Night.
