Cleveland, OH, 8 January 2008 ¬– The U.S. Geological Survey has awarded Global Marketing Insights, Inc. a contract to complete a market research study of the African Remote Sensing Market in aerial and satellite data technologies.
The USGS serves the Nation by providing reliable scientific information to describe and understand the Earth; minimize loss of life and property from natural disasters; manage water, biological, energy, and mineral resources; and enhance and protect our quality of life.
In their continuing support of the Earth Sciences this USGS study includes a five and ten year analysis of the Political, Economic and Technical Trends impacting the African Remote Sensing Professions; Academic, Commercial and Government Users. A key segment of this research will be completed by collecting information from respondents on-line. The surveys encompass political and economic trend information impacting the remote sensing industry, as well as applications usage, and data needs concerning Aerial Film, Aerial Digital, Aerial Sensors, and Satellite data.
The USGS African Remote Sensing Research surveys can be accessed by logging onto
