2015 Oklahoma Workshop on Remote Sensing Technology and Application
Date: November 16, 2015
Time: 9:30am – 5:00pm
Location: Radar Innovations Laboratory, 3190 Monitor Avenue, Norman, OK 73019
Remote sensing technology of various platforms (in-situ, airborne and satellite) has made substantial progress over the past few decades and has been playing an increasingly important role in observation and monitoring of the Planet Earth. This one-day workshop aims to provide a platform for researchers and users in Oklahoma to communicate their research and application activities, discuss collaboration, and develop networks among researchers, users and students as well as institutions. Participants are also encouraged to take part in the Geospatial Information Science Day (GISday) Expo at the University of Oklahoma on November 17, 2015 (http://www.eomf.ou.edu/gisday/), where poster presentations will be held. Institutions are encouraged to register a booth at the GISday Expo event and showcase their research activities and/or needs in the area of remote sensing technology and applications.
The one-day workshop will be composed of the following four sessions:
Session A: Land remote sensing and data products
Session B: Water remote sensing and data products
Session C: Atmospheric remote sensing and data products
Session D: Use of remote sensing data products for data analyses, models, and decision support
Session E: Dialogue between researchers and users
Session A-D will feature 2 to 4 speakers who will highlight recent progress in various research areas.
Through the USGS AmericaView (http://www.americaview.org/) grant (subaward to OklahomaView, http://okview.org), we will provide a total of $1,500 travel support for up to ten participants from Oklahoma (up to ~$150 for one night hotel on November 16, 2015). The priority of travel support will be given to speakers and institution representatives who also participate in the GISday Expo event on November 17, 2015 with a booth exhibit.
