13 July 2023 Topics Webinar | EO&GEO Series: UAV Remote Sensing for LULC, Landscape, Citizen Sciences, 13 July 2023


A message from Prof. Rui Alexandre Castanho, the webinar chair:

Throughout the webinar, we will have the opportunity to hear from leading experts in their fields, engage in productive discussions, and participate in hands-on workshops and activities. We aim to foster new partnerships through collaboration and innovation, providing a platform where a range of ideas can be shared.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have revolutionized remote sensing for land use and land cover (LULC) mapping and landscape analysis. The ability to capture high-resolution aerial imagery and create 3D landscape models has allowed for more accurate and detailed mapping of LULC patterns, changes, and trends over time.

Furthermore, using UAVs for citizen science initiatives has enabled communities to participate in monitoring and managing their local environments. This approach allows for a more collaborative and inclusive approach to environmental management and can help to build community awareness and engagement in environmental issues.

UAVs have also been used for mapping vegetation, soil erosion, and water quality monitoring. These applications have provided researchers and managers with new tools to better understand and manage natural resources. UAVs can collect data quickly and at a high resolution, allowing for more detailed analysis of small-scale features such as vegetation canopy cover, plant height, and soil erosion patterns.

Using UAVs for remote sensing and citizen science initiatives has opened up new opportunities for more efficient and effective environmental monitoring and management. As technology continues to improve, we can expect to see even more innovative applications of UAVs in environmental research and management.

At this webinar, we hope you will gain new insights, make valuable connections, and leave feeling inspired and motivated to drive positive change in your respective fields.

7–21 November 2023 The 5th International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing


Dear Colleagues,

The 5th International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing with a focus on “Advances in experimental and theoretical studies of terrestrial atmosphere and underlying surface” will be held on 7–21 November 2023. The main aim of the conference is to present recent advances in experimental and theoretical studies of the atmosphere (trace gases, atmospheric aerosols, cloudiness, precipitation, temperature, and pressure) and underlying surfaces with a focus on cryosphere, which has a great impact, including non-linear impacts, on climate change trends and the warming of our planet. The conference will promote the use of remote sensing and geospatial information technology and enable the exchange of innovative approaches in the area of remote sensing.

This is an excellent opportunity for remote sensing scientists to communicate with their colleagues, learn from each other, and share ideas and results. It will be possible to deliver live and pre-recorded presentations simultaneously.

The main topics and sessions of the conference are as follows:

S1. Remote sensing systems and techniques
S1-1. Ground-based, airborne, shipborne, and spaceborne remote sensing systems;
S1-2. Hyperspectral remote sensing;
S1-3. Lidar remote sensing;
