5th EARSeL Joint Workshop
"Urban Remote Sensing - Challenges & Solutions"
24-26 September 2018
This workshop is jointly organized by four Special Interest Groups (SIG’s) of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL):
- Urban Remote Sensing
- 3D Remote Sensing
- Developing Countries
- Radar Remote Sensing
The topic of the workshop is of mutual interest to these SIG`s. Thus the workshop will have an integrative function to bring together people from different remote sensing branches to discuss their experiences and problems in dealing with high resolution data. High resolution data are a valuable source for urban and suburban areas and can deliver information in high geometric and semantic quality for various cities and urban agglomerations around the world.
The first workshop of the EARSeL SIG “Urban Remote Sensing” in Berlin 2006 attracted approx. 130 participants. This was a strong indicator for the need of follow-up workshops on the topic in conjunction with other SIG`s dealing with high resolution data sets. Further very successful joint workshops followed then in 2008 (Bochum), 2010 (Ghent), 2012 (Mykonos), and 2014 (Warsaw).
