14-17 May 2012. Spatially Enabling Government, Industry and Citizens .The joint GSDI World Conference (GSDI 13), the 14th GEOIDE Annual Scientific Conference, the 7th 3DGeoInfo Conference , and the Canadian Geomatics Conference 2012 will take place in historic Québec City, Canada at the Québec City Conference Center in the heart of the city. Primary partners in organizing this conference include the GSDI Association and GEOIDE. Geographic information technologies and spatial data infrastructure play critical roles in allowing governments, local communities, non-government organizations, the commercial sector, the academic community and common people to make progress in addressing many of the world's most pressing problems. Further, use of spatial data in conjunction with mobile technologies is becoming pervasive within many nations. While mapping and spatial data infrastructure development was previously accomplished only by governments, this is no longer the case. All sectors of society are becoming spatially enabled and contributing to the development of the global spatial data infrastructure. Whether using hand-held devices incorporating phones, cameras, GPS, maps and location services or using sensors and wireless communications embedded within our homes, offices, stores, vehicles and along our travel paths, citizens are helping to build the next generations of spatial data infrastructure through their contributions of location and descriptive data. This conference will explore the complementary roles of government, private industry and the academic community in realizing better means for sharing geographic data and technologies and developing improved location-based services for meeting real world needs. Details at http://www.gsdi.org/gsdiconf/gsdi13/.
24-26 October 2012. Introduction to Wetland Remote Sensing and Mapping. Lafayette, Louisiana, USA. This workshop is a special designed introductory 3 day session of lectures, discussions, and hands-on exercises that emphasize the use of manual and cognitive interpretation skills of aerial photography/imagery in assessing and mapping wetland vegetation from species level to broad vegetative level classifications. This workshop provides necessary imagery analytical skills for assessing classification performance of computer automated classification routines and products. A special final computer digitizing and delineation exercise, to display final interpretation/analysis results, will be provided. Included is a full day field trip to forest and coastal wetland areas to develop imagery recognition signatures and verify wetland interpretations made in the classroom. Course content has been designed for natural resource mapping specialist, field biologists, researchers, and others who deal with wetland wildlife habitat, environmental quality and impact assessments. Since interest in this workshop is likely to be high, an early application is suggested. Cost: $385. For more information, contact: Ashley Hartley– USGS/RAC, workshop coordinator, Phone: (337) 482-0670. Email: ahartley@usgs.gov
30 October – 1 November 2012. Advanced Wetland Photo-Interpretation. Lafayette , Louisiana, USA. This three day workshop will cover: The development of a methodology for mapping wetlands projects; application of the Federal Geographic Data Committee adopted Classification of Wetlands & Deepwater Habitats of the US system; photo interpretation of seasonal color infrared aerial photographs/imagery; use of topographic maps and soil surveys, historical wetland aerial imagery & maps, other ancillary information as aids in the photo interpretation/analytical process; ground-truth techniques and utilization of other field data. This course will include classroom lectures, classroom exercises in photo interpretation of wetland habitats with access to stereoscopic options and fieldwork. A special final computer digitizing and delineation exercise, to display final interpretation/analysis results, will be provided. Several field (2) trips will be experienced to provide wetland classification signature development and classification mapping confidence. An understanding of the identification of wetland habitats from aerial photography/imagery (*as presented in the Introduction to Remote Sensing and Photo interpretation of Wetlands) is essential for this workshop. *Work related experiences can be substituted for the introductory workshop. Cost $385. . For more information, contact: Ashley Hartley– USGS/RAC, workshop coordinator, Phone: (337) 482-0670. Email: ahartley@usgs.gov
