The Remote Sensing Deluge
Speaker: Jarlath O'Neil-Dunne, University of Vermont Spatial Analysis Lab
Noon - 1:30 p.m.
Location: Presidents Hall 1-2
From cubesats to drones to new modes of LiDAR, we are inundated with data from above. We also have a plethora of techniques to turn these data into information. Are all these advances helping us make better decisions or do we find ourselves drowning in technology? We will dive into these new technologies, going beyond the hype to get at how we can leverage the latest generation of remote sensing platforms, tools, and techniques to develop a better understanding of our planet and make more informed decisions.
Jarlath O’Neil-Dunne is the Director of the Spatial Analysis Laboratory at the University of Vermont where he holds a joint appointment with the USDA Forest Service. He also teaches for Penn State’s Geospatial Intelligence program. His work focuses on extracting information from remotely sensed data to help people make better decisions. For over a decade he served in the United States Marine Corps.
