DETAILS: Background

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

Participants are also encouraged to take part in the Geospatial Information Science Day (GISday) Expo at the University of
Oklahoma on November 17, 2015 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 eeds in the area of remote sensing technology and applications.

Workshop Themes

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.

Travel Support: 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.
