CRSS/ASPRS 2007 Specialty
Our Common Borders -
Safety, Security and the Environment through
OCTOBER 28 - NOVEMBER 1,
2007. OTTAWA, CANADA
American Society for Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing (ASPRS) and the
Canadian Remote Sensing Society (CRSS – a society member of the Canadian
Aeronautics and Space Institute) are organizing an exciting conference around
the theme of Our Common Borders - Safety, Security and the Environment through
Remote Sensing. This conference will showcase mapping, imaging techniques and
associated remote sensing projects in both countries that are promoting and
enhancing cross-border geospatial cooperation, particularly in the areas of:
U.S. and Canadian contributions to the Global Earth Observation System of
Systems (GEOSS) and the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS), cross-border
environmental and spatial data infrastructure work, homeland security, and the
International Joint Commission.
and CRSS invite you to join them in highlighting Canadian and
U.S. remote sensing and geospatial
technology, applications and projects, including those of ASPRS Canadian
members. The meeting will provide a forum in which the organizations working in
these and other areas can advance their work for the benefit of the public,
private and academic sectors in both nations. The focus of the conference is
placed on cross-border activities and programs with an emphasis on advancing
current U.S./Canadian collaborations and to examine potential opportunities to
enhance and expand those activities in the future. The conference will assist
both U.S. and Canadian practitioners to
demonstrate their projects, generate input, and gain the support of their
international counterparts. The intent of the conference program is to develop
and advance remote sensing communications across our borders
and build strategic partnerships, both internationally and among government,
academia, and industry.
and establish key contacts within the international remote sensing community
to share ideas, techniques and expertise across borders.
support for border-related activities within the practitioner’s own
organization or beyond.
the profile of important U.S./Canadian international, environmental, and
border security-related issues.
conference will offer a mix of general sessions, breakout technical sessions,
and applications sessions. Interested participants are encouraged to submit an
abstract of their presentations.
