89th Forum: Urban Environment Monitoring Using Comprehensive Remote Sensing and Elevation Data
 Date: 2014-12-05  Page Views:

On October 23, 2014, Dr. Caccetta Peter from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) visited the RADI’s 89th Earth Observation and Digital Earth Forum and delivered an academic report titled “Urban and Regional Monitoring Using Hi-resolution Optical Imagery and Elevation Data”. This seminar was chaired by Liu Liangyun, Researcher and head of the Optical Earth Observation Division, CAS Key Laboratory of Digital Earth Science. 

In his report, Dr. Caccetta Peter firstly introduced how the CSIRO’s Terrestrial Mapping and Monitoring research group was progressing and analyzed the application of remote sensing data with medium to high-spatial resolution in Australia’s land utilization and management of natural resources information. He took Perth a western Australian city as an example to explain the processing of remote sensing images with high-spatial resolution, the methods of information extraction, and the changes to the regional vegetation and building coverage by using the optical remote sensing images with high-spatial resolution (like the data of ZY-3 Satellite) and the elevation data. As he pointed out, the use of the elevation data and the optical remote sensing data with multi-date high-spatial resolution can greatly facilitate the monitoring of changes in the regional ecology. RADI’s researchers present had discussions and communication with Dr. Caccetta Peter.

Dr. Caccetta Peter now is the head of CSIRO’s Terrestrial Mapping and Monitoring research group. He was awarded a bachelor’s degree from the University of Western Australia in 1989 and gained a PhD degree from the Curtin University of Technology in 1997. Since 1999, he has led the collaborative research on the development of broad-scale terrestrial monitoring systems to inform natural resource management. In 2004, he was awarded the CSIRO Chairman’s Medal for his outstanding contributions to the remote sensing and environment management field.
