Symposium: Remote Sensing for Conservation - ZSL 2014
The ZSL symposium on Remote Sensing for Conservation will take place on the 22nd and 23rd of May 2014 at ZSL in London. This symposium will highlight integrative approaches for an improved ecological understanding of the mechanisms shaping current changes in biodiversity patterns, while triggering new research directions in remote sensing science and the development of new remote sensing products.
Workshop on Remote Sensing for Conservation
This by invitation only workshop on Remote Sensing for Conservation takes place from 30th of September to 2nd of October 2013 at JRC in Ispra, Italiy. The topic will be the application of Remote Sensing for Conservation application and aims at discussing shortcomings and potential of remote sensing. A special focus will be on the needs of organisations in pan-tropical countries. Members from different research and conservation organisations are invited.
User needs assessment: EO for Biodiversity and Conservation
This survey aims to obtain information from ecologists, conservationists and remote sensing scientists working in the interdisciplinary field of remote sensing within biodiversity and conservation in order to understand the needs and challenges of remote sensing applications. Through this user needs assessment we will be able to understand the status quo and future needs. The results will be communicated to decision makers e.g. CEOS, as well as the GEO framework, e.g. GEO BON, where all space agencies and other related research organisations coordinate activities.
aerial photography workshop
A workshop on methods for aerial surveys will take place at WCS (NY, US) on the 8th of November, 2013. Ned Horning from AMNH will show the potential of these methods for conservation and land cover surveys. He will explain technical challenges as well as post-processing techniques.
Conservation Remote Sensing Workshop in Myanmar
A strategic planning workshop (by invitation only) will take place in Naypyidaw, Myanmar from 17-21 June, 2013 in order to discuss the potential of geospatial technologies such as remote sensing to monitor and analyse changes of Myanmars natural resources.
WCS Workshop: Challenges for Conservation
This invitation-only workshop will bring together remote sensing scientists and conservationists for an intensive 5 day meeting. The objective of the workshop is to develop a list of «top ten» questions and will be the first step in the formation of a more organized conservation remote sensing community that will bring together academics, government scientists and conservationists for ongoing discussions and collaborations focusing on applied remote sensing and conservation.
CEOS SBA Biodiversity Workshop
The aim of the CEOS SBA Biodiversity Workshop was to provide feedback to the CEOS Societal Benefit Area on Biodiversity as to how satellite remote sensing (RS) can address the needs of the terrestrial biodiversity research and conservation applications communities.
The workshop revealed several challenges and opportunities regarding the use of satellite remote sensing in biodiversity research and conservation applications.
