Steven Ramage the OGC's Executive Director Marketing & Communications, will speak.
The theme of the 2013 symposium will be Earth Observation and Global Environmental Change - 50 Years of Remote Sensing: Progress and Prospects. With the increased accessibility of interactive maps and virtual globes, along with the proliferation of spatially-aware devices and sensors, Earth observation is experiencing a kind of rebirth with unprecedented potential for innovation and discovery. It is an exciting time to be involved in the field, and the 35th ISRSE is being held for the first time in China, a nation with huge investments in both Earth observation technology and environmental science.
The OGC will lead a workshop at ISRSE35 on 21 April: " Interoperability, GEOSS Implementation Pilots and Remote Sensing of the Environment; Real World Case Studies". We look forward to seeing you there!
