 Date: 2016-05-15  Page Views:
From April 25 to 29, Remote Sensing Symposium across Taiwan Strait 2016 was held in Taiwan. It’s co-organized by Taiwan Society of Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing and Environmental Remote Sensing Branch of China Geography Society and jointly undertaken by the GIS Research Center of Feng Chia University, CAS Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth (RADI), State Key Laboratory of Remote Sensing Science and NCU Space and Remote Sensing Research Center. It attracted over 120 researchers in the fields related to remote sensing from across the Taiwan Strait.

At the opening ceremony on April 25, RADI Deputy Director ZHAO Zhongming, Director of Taiwan Society of Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing Prof. Shih Tian-Yuan, and Feng Chia University President Lee Bing-Jean each delivered an address to welcome the guests, review the history of remote sensing symposium across the strait and express their expectation for this meeting.

Reports submitted to the symposium cover Global Land Surface Satellite (GLASS) products and their application to environmental changes, the contribution of Formosa satellites in international humanitarian assistance, and the creative application of remote sensing to unmanned aerial vehicles in Taiwan. Discussions were held on eight topics: the atmosphere and the climate, space consultancy technology, diastrophic activities and natural disasters, environmental monitoring and changes, agriculture and forests, image and signal processing, vehicle and remote sensors, satellite surveying and navigation.

As academic exchanges become increasingly frequent across the Strait, eight editions of the symposium have been held in Guilin, Harbin, Qingdao and Taiwan, producing remarkable results in across-strait Sci-tech and cultural exchanges.
