Indian Society of Remote Sensing (ISRS) and Indian Society of Geomatics (ISG), the two premier professional bodies join together every year to organize a national symposium on relevant themes. This year’s theme is “Environment Monitoring & Climate Change Assessment: Opportunities and Challenges” which will provide opportunities to address the challenges of emerging climate change issues and need to monitor the environment through remote sensing.
The recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has brought drastic changes in people’s daily lives, work and the surrounding environment. Geostationary and polar orbiting satellites help in accurate and precise monitoring of various changes in global environment, which is important for decision makers to formulate and implement policies on city/town lock-down/unlocking, assessment of economic loss & environmental resilience and future directions for a safer human civilization.
Advanced developments in the earth observation technology and geomatics have accelerated their scope and usage in almost all spheres of human needs, environment protection and space exploration. The purpose of the symposium is to provide a platform to Remote Sensingand GIS professionals, academicians, researchers and students for discussions and debates on emerging issues and challenges. This symposium will be organized in online/virtual mode as per the new normal in the current COVID-19 scenario.
Listen to thought leaders and experts talk about how technology is playing a vital role to play in the response to the current situation, both in developing tools to fight the virus itself and in cushioning the impact on society as the pandemic persists.Log In
