Spatial Statistics Conference

The 1st Conference on Spatial Statistics 2011: Mapping Global Change is to be held from 23rd to 25th March 2011 at the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands. Spatial statistics is a rapidly developing field involving the quantitative analysis of spatial data and the statistical modelling of spatial variability and uncertainty. Applications of spatial statistics are for a broad range of environmental disciplines such as agriculture, geology, soil science, hydrology, ecology, oceanography, forestry, meteorology and climatology, but also for socio-economic disciplines such as human geography, spatial econometrics, epidemiology and spatial planning. Keynote speakers include Martin Schlather (Universität Göttingen), Noel Cressie... (read more)

KOMPSAT-2 Satellite Returns First Images

Korea’s KOMPSAT-2 Earth observation satellite, launched 28th July, has returned its first images from orbit 685 kilometres above the planet. Spot Image is the exclusive distributor of KOMPSAT-2 data for the Korean Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) outside Korea, the United States and the Middle East. KARI developed the KOMPSAT-2 programme in close collaboration with EADS Astrium, in particular to acquire Very-High-Resolution (VHR) imagery for South Korea’s needs in mapping, urban planning and hazard management. KOMPSAT-2 is a VHR optical imaging satellite (1m resolution in black and white, 4m in colour) capable of acquiring up to 7,500 images with a ground... (read more)

SPOT Imagery for International Polar Year

The French space agency CNES and Spot Image are contributing to a number of research programmes now underway for International Polar Year (IPY), for which they have built up a significant archive of imagery of the polar regions from SPOT 5's HRS instrument (High Resolution Stereoscopic). With global warming today a chief concern, these data are giving scientists around the globe an opportunity to gain a closer insight into the world's changing ice cover.   Satellite imagery is a vital tool for tracking temperate and polar ice cover. In this respect, SPOT 5's HRS instrument has the key ability to... (read more)
