Imagery and Mapping Summit

December 12, 2017

The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel, Delhi

Imagery & Mapping Summit

Pervasiveness of GIS and increased advancement of remote sensing technology for earth observation, atmospheric and planetary observation, innovations in sensors, use of drones, UAVs for remote sensing, accessibility of high-resolution multispectral, hyperspectral, SAR, LiDAR and Microwave data compelled GIS professionals, scientists, and image analysts to extract meaningful information using more sophisticated products in a greater & quicker way maintaining higher accuracy.

Customers, today, are demanding more content, want to integrate data from multiple sources, integrate spatial data with non-spatial and expect data currency, on-demand accessibility, and application-ready formats for successful analysis using artificial intelligence and deep learning for big data.

Similarly, a huge demand is surging for an optimized, automated and multiscale mapping to improve the quality and value of geospatial output by automating processes through standardization, repeatability, and configuration of the production processes. This presents significant challenges for agencies (such as national mapping agencies and remote sensing centres) with a mandate to manage the data and make it accessible.

At Esri India’s Imagery & Mapping Summit, you will get a close look at innovations driving remote sensing analysis and mapping technologies, their impact, and how agencies need to adapt to the new paradigm. This will also, gather new ideas for your organization on improving workflows, collaboration, and decision-making.
