Pacific Islands GIS\RS User Conference 2015

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
Undefined

Since the inception of Pacific GIS/RS User Conference in 1999, this annual event has attracted a lot of participants. Each year the range of GIS/RS technologies presented cover an array of applications including the management of resources of the small island Pacific nations. Shallow water bathymetry derived from satellite imagery, forest function maps to identify areas for to be protected, areas identified for developments in flood zones are some of the applications where the development of GIS/RS in the region have been applied in various sectors.

Principles and Applications of Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English
ITC, University of Twente

Over the past decade, the fields of earth observation and geo-information science have gradually moved away from the traditional mapping or “inventory” type of science to focus increasingly on understanding the processes that shape our environment, predicting their future effects, and providing improved information to support planning and policy making. A process-oriented approach to solving problems requires not only a sound basis of factual spatial data that can be used by scientists and/or decision makers but also a strong background in the field of application.

GIS and Social Media Team to Combat Disasters

Two of the world’s top technologies are consistently pairing up in what many believe is the evolution of information. Software companies are integrating geographic information systems (GIS) technology and social media to map people’s tweets and other social media platforms with geospatial data. GIS paired with social media has been used in every major disaster over the past two years. Lee Mitchell, owner of G.A.I.A. Professionals, a successful GIS technology firm, lived on the waterfront line of the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Second GIS and Remote Sensing Course for Infrastructure Management and Disaster Risk Reduction Successfully Concluded

Last week 19 persons from various government entities on Sint Maarten (17), Anguilla (1) and the British Virgin Islands (BVI) (1) took part in part two of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing Course for Infrastructure Management and Disaster Risk Reduction. There has been a rapid growth in the use of digital spatial and temporal data in many aspects of disaster management, for example, preventive planning, response and recovery. Section Head of Disaster Management Paul Martens said the course was successfully concluded last week.
