The Esri UC is the most important gathering of Esri developers, partners, and GIS consultants, giving you full access to the latest game-changing geospatial technologies under one roof. The annual Esri International User Conference aims to help stakeholders to identify and apply cutting-edge solutions on current challenges.
Recognizing how important it is to find innovative solutions to save lives and reduce economic losses, researchers from the High Impact Weather Research Centre (HIWRC) at South Korea’s Gangneung-Wonju National University have developed a new device which could soon predict natural disasters before they even hit.
The Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems (CSISS) is an interdisciplinary research center chartered by the provost and affiliated with the College of Science at George Mason University. CSISS currently operates Laboratory for Advanced Information Technology and Standards (LAITS).
A new study by BBC Research LLC, has found that the global market for remote sensing technologies will continuously grow and should reach $12.1 billion by 2019, as Spar Point Group reported. The study includes forecasts for 20 end-user markets in 39 countries.
This training course was conducted as a follow-up action to the Technical Advisory Missions which were carried out by UN-SPIDER in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Myanmar. This one-month training course was organised by the Center for Space Science and Technology Education in Asia and the Pacific (CSSTEAP) and was jointly conducted by the Indian Institute of
A total of 27 participants from 17 countries were participating in the course.
The overall objective of this international training course was to strengthen the capacity of participants in understanding how space-based information, services and solutions can be used to reduce disaster risks and losses. The participants were exposed to relevant space-based geoinformation (remote sensing, GIS, satellite positioning systems) and communication technologies and their synergies with modeling techniques that can be used in different phases of disaster risk reduction (DRR) for a variety of hazards. The course consisted of five modules including an overview of disaster risk reduction, an overview of space technologies for disaster risk reduction, the application of space technologies to this context and a short project.
