In August 1999 under a 5-year Space Act Agreement ASPRS and NASA combined resources and expertise to develop a baseline and forecast of the Remote Sensing Industry Market. Since FY 2004 ASPRS USGS and NOAA have executed several additional phases of the Forecast which:
- Enables analysis of the Remote Sensing Industry
- Baselines the industry
- Presents focused business forecasts
Progress and Remote Sensing Forecast information is reported regularly at the Spring and Fall ASPRS conferences. Documentation and presentations are also available.
