ESA-EUSC-JRC 2011 - Image Information Mining: Geospatial Intelligence from Earth Observation

Wednesday, 2011-03-30
Friday, 2011-04-01

The event is the seventh in the series jointly organised by ESA and EUSC, and by JRC since 2009.
The dramatic increase in volume, details, diversity and complexity and the increase in user demand for simultaneous access to multi-domain data urgently require new approaches for image information mining, multi-domain information management, and knowledge management and sharing (in support of information mining and training). This year's conference continues to focus on automation in support of applications and services for geospatial intelligence, for which Image Information Mining is of very high interest.
