39th EARSeL symposium, DIGITAL | EARTH | OBSERVATION

The 39th EARSeL symposium, will be held in Salzburg in July 2019. The symposium is supported by the Copernicus Academy, by ESA, and dedicated industrial partners.

Satellite image processing used to be digital from early on. Still, since digital image processing of Landsat imagery started in the early 1970ies, the workflows used to bear a significant share of ‘manual’ data manipulation, including storage, pre-processing, and supervised classification. Only today, with heavily increased computing power, cloud storage and processing systems, as well as automated information extraction, the workflows experience disruptive changes which both the scientific community and the Earth observation service industry have to cope with.

The topics of the symposium are:

– Big data | Digital Earth
– Machine learning | Deep learning
– Computer vision | Knowledge organising systems
– Interoperability | Online processing | INSPIRE
– Data cubes | EO data infrastructure
– Copernicus missions | Current Sentinel and upcoming
– EO applications | Societal benefits | SDGs
– In-situ data | Crowd mapping | Geo-social networks
– New jobs | Markets and opportunities
