LECTURE: Emerging Technologies in Remote Sensing

Announcing YGP’s next Meet Up on July 30th!

It is an exciting time in the field of earth observation. The technology surrounding satellite and aerial imagery is burgeoning and the Bay Area is home to some of the most creative organizations in the industry. You are invited to join the GIS Education Center at City College of San Francisco to hear leaders in image production discuss new techniques and applications in remote sensing.

Speakers will demonstrate latest trends in image collection, production, and analysis, such as: web-based analysis and image access, un-manned aircraft collection, commercial micro-constellations, and current applications such as searching for the missing Malaysian airplane and monitoing wildfires. 

Speakers begin at 6:30 (Schedule and speakers TBA)
