Geospatial Technologies Informing Australia’s Environmental Strategies and Policies: Leading Practices

Australia’s TERN AusCover delivers earth observation data and products from satellite and airborne imagery, linked to field observations, that measure and monitor key land-surface and environmental characteristics. This session will focus on how environmental monitoring and management activities can use AusCover products; e.g. supporting bushfire management, carbon emissions trading, pollen monitoring for public health benefits, natural resource management.  Submissions that showcase different AusCover TERN applications as well as other applied research on environmental and policy management assisted by remote sensing are welcomed.

Deadline for Abstract Submission is Wednesday 5 April.

Early bird conference registration is open until 1 May and is $655 for IAG members and $425 for student members.
