Webinar: Remote Sensing: Opportunities Everywhere


Changes in the Remote Sensing Environment

This insightful webinar was presented by Geoff Sawyer, Secretary General of EARSC. There have been substantial changes in the Remote Sensing (RS) environment with improved resolution levels for satellite imagery. More satellite imagery is free of charge, software to process and interpret imagery has improved significantly. Drones have provided a powerful new platform. Plus in the near future, driverless vehicles with their many sensors and software will add another important dimension.
