PSW & SDSU Spring Technical Meeting

April 16 @ 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM EDT

Calling all Geographers, Drone Enthusiasts, Map Makers, Remote Sensing Scientists, Photogrammetrists, and Anyone Interested in Practical Applications of Geospatial Science and Technology!

Please join the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Pacific Southwest (PSW) Region and San Diego State University (SDSU) Student Chapter of ASPRS on Friday, April 16th, 2021 for our Spring Technical Meeting. It will be held over Zoom from 2:00-4:30 pm Pacific Time.


Dr. Cindy Schmidt (BAERI/NASA) will speak about satellite observations for nature and people, and will share the work she has done with Indigenous communities. Dr. Schmidt has over 25 years of experience in remote sensing and GIS technology for natural resource management, urban planning, and human health risk assessment.

Dr. Kenneth Field (Esri Inc) is a cartographer, data visualization wizard, and self described “cartonerd” who regularly blogs his cartographic creations and shows users what is possible with Esri software.

Dr. Karen Joyce (James Cook University in Cairns, Australia; She Maps; GeoNadir) will discuss her work with drones and imaging the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. In addition to teaching, she is the co-founder and Education director of She Maps and GeoNadir, both of which focus on geospatial technology and drone imaging.

Dr. Vena Chu (UC Santa Barbara Geography) will speak about supraglacial rivers on the Greenland Ice Sheet. Her research uses geospatial technologies and field observations to study Arctic hydrologic systems in a changing climate.

There will be time following the presentations for additional Q&A from 4:30-5:30 pm. This will be a great event to learn about current remote sensing, photogrammetry, and GIS research projects and opportunities. We hope you can join us!
