sem_13 diciembre 2013_tim warner

Se invita a todos los interesados en el área de Percepción Remota a participar del seminario “Current and future opportunities in remote sensing: A personal perspective from the Co-Editor-In-Chief of the International Journal of Remote Sensing”, que será dictado por nuestro profesor visitante Dr. Tim Warner, de la West Virginia University.  Este seminario se realizará a las 15.15 hrs., del próximo viernes 13 de diciembre, en el Auditorio Alamiro Robledo de nuestra Facultad.


This seminar will present an overview of current developments in remote sensing from the perspective of a remote sensing journal editor. Recent years have seen many innovations in remote sensing technology, including the maturing of lidar, a wide range of national satellite-based remote sensing programs, high spatial resolution commercial satellites, and miniaturized sensors flying on small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones). Arguably, analytical techniques have advanced even more rapidly, with development of new approaches in the spatial analysis of images, including geographic object-based image analysis (GEOBIA, also termed OBIA) and sub-pixel mapping, as well as advances in image fusion and machine learning. The seminar will conclude with a look ahead to the next decade, where it is likely the emphasis will be on operational remote sensing, data fusion of disparate wavelengths and the integration of information from constellations of satellites.
