NoRSC ’19

Nordic Remote Sensing Conference 2019

17-19 September 2019

Data Acquisition, Algorithms and Applications

Northern environments are undergoing rapid changes with the greatest shifts in temperature and some of the most extreme shifts in seasonal timing globally. Remote Sensing has enabled scientists to study and predict phenomena over large spatial and temporal scales. However, Earth observation data are being collected with increasing spatial, spectral and temporal resolutions, arguably at a faster pace than the development of algorithms for processing and analysing these data. The Nordic Remote Sensing Conference 2019 (NoRSC’19) will provide a transdisciplinary platform for researchers in both academia and industry, involved in the acquisition, analysis and applications of remotely sensed data  to share their knowledge for the advancement of the field. It will also serve as a forum for networking to promote collaborative projects. 

NoRSC’19 seeks to strengthen the cooperation between institutes and research groups in Earth Observation, taking inspiration from the Nordic Remote Sensing Days organised jointly by the Norwegian Space Centre and the Tromsø Centre for Remote Technology in 2011 and by the Finnish Remote Sensing Club in 2009. NoRSC’19 will bring together researchers in the broad field of Remote Sensing in, but not restricted to, the Nordic and Arctic countries. Topics include the acquisition of data from satellite, airborne, terrestrial or under-water platforms, development of algorithms for data processing and analysis, and the use of derived metrics in applications across disciplines. The sessions will be non-thematic to facilitate exchange of ideas across groups.
