Around this time during the month of March, when the name Louisville is heard, many people are likely to think of college basketball, baseball, or horse racing. However, this March, when Louisville is mentioned to scientists and professionals interested in remote sensing, they may think American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) instead.
The reason for this unusual thought is the ASPRS 2014 Annual Conference, “Geospatial Power in our Pockets,” which is being held in Louisville, Kentucky March 23-28. Three scientists from the NASA Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) will give presentations at the meeting. Mo Khayat will present Implementation of the Open Source Document Preservation System at the NASA GES DISC, which is co-authored by Steven Kempler, Barbara Deshong, Ed Esfandiari, Irina Gerasimov, Michael Berganski, and James Acker. This presentation will be given in the special session on “Best Practices in Archiving and Preservation of Imagery and Geospatial Data.” Arif Albayrak and William Teng will present Estimating Rainfall for Index-Based Agricultural Insurance in the session, “Pattern Recognition in Remote Sensing.”
