Notes in Brief from Remote Sensing and GIS 2009

July 12th, 2009 by Susan Smith

The afternoon of this all-day pre-conference seminar featured case studies and panel discussions followed by a networking reception.

Aurelie Shapiro, remote sensing specialist for the World Wildlife Fund US, spoke on “Satellites, Species: GIS and remote sensing for conservation at the WWF.” She covered Indonesian humanitarian efforts, tiger conservation landscapes, and other projects that combine remote sensing and GIS.
Visitors will be able to see the WWF exhibit in the Map Gallery Monday evening.
Martin Hogeweb, project and product management, ESRI, active in GEOSS and GeoPortal, spoke on improving access and use of imagery using open and interoperable off-the-shelf technologies. Hogeweg said that international collaboration is essential for exploiting the potential of earth observation for decision making.

Two industry panel discussions: “Imagery software providers” and “Imagery data providers” were interspersed between case studies.

Lilian Pintea, director of conservation science for the Jane Goodall Institute, also spoke on their APES MAPPER, a portal based on Microsoft Silverlight, powered by ArcGIS Server and leveraging ArcGIS Online layers and services. The Mapper collaborates with other databases. Pintea said that after 15 years of applying satellite imagery to the research of chimpanzees, they can now study spatial behavior with GIS and remote sensing.
