Remote Sensing to Improve Water Management Planning

Aqua Enviro’s conference on Remote Sensing for Catchment Management, taking place on 1 May at the Leeds Club in Leeds, UK, will focus on presenting a range of applications from catchment and asset management to more unusual applications such as archaeology, which is of regulatory relevance to the water and environmental sectors. Remote sensing offers water companies a new way to improve planning in water management. The images provide previously invisible detail that can be applied to a range of uses in water catchment and asset management. In spite of the advances of remote sensing technology, its potential has not... (read more)

12th Brazilian Remote Sensing Symposium

For Companies, Researchers, Universities, Institutions and Schoolteachers
The 12th Brazilian Remote Sensing Symposium (SBSR) was held in the Convention Center, Goiânia, Goiás State Capital from 17th to 21st April 2005. This was the biggest symposium since the start of the series in 1978, with 1,043 participants from sixteen countries, representing nearly all continents. The event was organised by the National Institute for Space Research (INPE) through its General Co-ordination of Earth Observation and the Latin-American Society of Specialists in Remote Sensing (SELPER) Brazilian Branch. Prior to the start of the actual symposium, thirteen courses were given during the weekend. Topics varied from sensor technology, such as Hyperspectral... (read more)

Remote Sensing Technology Reveals WWII Escape Tunnel

A team of archaeologists and geoscientists using remote sensing techniques have discovered an escape tunnel in Lithuania dating from World War II. The narrow tunnel is 35 metres long and was hand-dug by Jewish prisoners who were being held captive at Ponar. Up to 100,000 people – most of them Lithuanian and Polish Jews –are estimated to have been massacred by the Nazis at the site in the Ponar forest, just outside the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, between 1941 and 1944. Hand-dug Tunnel According to the researchers, in 1943, as Soviet forces were closing in on the region, the German... (read more)

Joint China-Brazil Remote Sensing Satellites

CBERS-2
The CBERS Programme, a co-operative Chinese-Brazilian Earth Resources Satellites Programme with versatile cameras, has realised a vast success of the Brazilian data distribution policy that is leveraging research and business in Earth observation. It is expected that in 2005 new ground stations around the world will be receiving CBERS images. Since the launch of the first US Landsat-1, formerly called ERTS (Earth Resources Technology Satellite), back in 1972, the world never stopped to improve on remote sensing technologies and broaden the applications. Landsat-1 opened to the world new opportunities for observing the Earth from a completely new point of view.... (read more)
