The 6th International Conference on Earth Observation for Environmental Changes (EOEC 2019) and the 8th International Conference on Geo-information Technologies for Natural Disaster Management (GiT4NDM 2019) will held a joint event under the theme "Earth observation and geospatial data sharing for sustainable development" from 24 to 26 June in Chengdu, China.
The joint event aims to advance research and development, as well as to encourage innovative applications of geomatics technologies in environmental change studies, geospatial information management toward implementation of sustainable development goals and 2030 smart environment and cities using artificial intelligence and deep learning. The joint event will also address the international co-operation in environmental change studies using advanced geospatial tools, spatiotemporal models and earth observation systems.
This joint event offers an interdisciplinary forum in the fields of remote sensing, surveying and mapping, geodesy and geosciences, geography, marine science, forestry, renewable energy, environment, transportation, natural hazards, disaster management and climate change science.
The conference will address the following topics, among others:
- Point cloud processing, BIM and smart 3D visualization
- Climate-induced hazards mapping and vulnerability assessment
- New Earth observation systems for natural hazard monitoring
- UAV systems for hazard mapping and damage assessment
- Web-based multidimensional GIS for disaster risk management and web-mobile applications development
- Monitoring and managing meteorological and geological disasters
- Wireless sensor networks for agricultural and ecological disasters
- New geospatial technologies in early warning, forecasting and monitoring of natural hazard chains and data sharing
