European Hyperspectral Seminar is a 2.5 day seminar designed for engineers, scientists, and other remote sensing professionals who wish to become familiar with hyperspectral remote sensing technology. You'll learn the basic physics of spectroscopy, the types of spectral sensors currently used by government and indust
The International Charter: Space and Major Disasters was activated on 02 April 2014 to provide satellite image products in support of the response efforts for the tsunami event on the northern coast of Chile.
The Information and Communications Technology Office of the Philippine Department of Science and Technology (DOST), together with the technology provider IBM launched the Intelligent Operations Centre (IOC) near Quezon City.

Proba-V was launched in May 2014 and went operational in December. In the just two months of work, the ESA’s vegetation-monitoring Proba-V mini-satellite sent back over 5,000 images, 65 daily global maps and six 10-day global syntheses.
The summer heat in Australia brought high temperatures as well as strong winds to an already dry environment and created conditions for big fires. By yesterday almost 200,000 hectares had burned. The massive Snowy River Complex fire alone lights up an area of the size of Melbourne.
A potential new ESAsatellite could use the fluorescence in plants to track health and productivity of vegetation worldwide. A likely candidate for the eighth ESA Earth Explorer, the Fluorescence Explorer (FLEX) would thus provide data for global maps of vegetation.
