ASPRS GeoTech Conference 23-24 Sept GMU


The Potomac Region of the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is calling for student posters to present at this year’s GeoTech Conference. GeoTech is a two-day technical conference for geographers, image scientists, and engineers that is hosted by the American Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. The focus of the conference this year is Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or UAVs.

We are looking for students of all academic levels to contribute their ideas in the spatial sciences in regards to the engineering, data processing, or applications of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. This is a great opportunity for students interested in learning more about UAVs and spatial technologies as students are given full access to the conference to meet with other students and professionals.

This year, GeoTech will be hosted at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, on September 23 and 24, 2015, and will feature a large student presence from many universities in the Potomac/Mid-Atlantic region.

If you are interested in participating in the poster session, please click on the google form here: http://goo.gl/forms/EVO8SVYKbW. If you are interested in participating, but you are unsure about the topic, please submit a form anyway, and we will be in contact with you to help create a great project!

If you do not want to submit a poster, you are welcome to register as a student at a reduced rate. Click here for more information about the two-day conference: http://www.asprspotomac.org/2015geotech/index.html .

We look forward to your application!

Open Source Methods, Open Standards and Geospatial Data Quality

Registration now open at: http://www.asprspotomac.org/geotech2013/index.html

Overview: In an era of rapidly growing open source (OS) data and software, the opportunity for its integration with traditional business practices is considerable. However, a fundamental issue that must be considered is quality. For example, data quality must be accurately quantified in order to propagate its effects in various geoprocesses, which ultimately impacts decision making. Addressing the quality issue can be greatly facilitated with development and adoption of community standards, particularly for metadata. Accordingly, the goals of this conference are to focus upon: 1) Assessing and demonstrating the value and impact of OS to the geospatial community, 2) Forecasting OS evolution in terms of impact to business practices, and 3) Proposing new methods to assess OS quality to facilitate standardization and exploitation.
