Welcome To MultiTemp 2013
Remote-sensing imagery is an essential source of information for monitoring change over large and small areas on Earth. The satellite-image archive now stretches back some forty years, with airborne products available well before that. Ever better, new and archived data, high in both quantity and quality, are now available. Techniques for analysis are on the cutting edge of research, with operational tools available in commercial image-analysis software systems. Decision-makers and the public demand better information about the environment and human activity that can be supplied by modelling trends, changes and cycles using remotely sensed images.
MultiTemp draws together researchers and practitioners in all areas of temporal techniques and applications. The conference first met in 2001, and has met every second year since, alternating between Europe and North America. This seventh edition brings us together in Banff, Canada. Increasingly prominent topics include monitoring of resource development impacts; the rapidly changing polar oceans and lands; natural hazard identification, monitoring and adaptation; habitat conservation; urban land-use planning; population movements; and of course, change-analysis techniques, modeling, time-series processing, and data mining.
MultiTemp 2013 is sponsored by the Canadian Remote Sensing Society (CRSS), with Technical Co-Sponsorship provided by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), and host sponsorship by the University of Calgary and our mountain venue: the Banff Centre.
To each delegate and participant, we make two simple commitments:
How many conferences offer top-quality science in an internationally acclaimed national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site? Check out these conference web pages and this UNESCO web site for more.
We invite you to join us in Banff this June, to explore all the scientific, networking, social, and legacy opportunities that this international event and destination has to offer; a glimpse of which can be found on these conference web pages. But for a truly unforgettable experience, you will need to attend MultiTemp2013 yourself.
On behalf of CRSS, IEEE GRSS, The University of Calgary, and The Banff Centre, we extend a warm welcome and invitation to join us as we come together in this intimate alpine setting for this biennial international science meeting and conference, at a time when monitoring and understanding the changes on Earth are of global importance, and for which advances in MultiTemporal Remote Sensing are at the heart of documenting our past, and understanding our future.
