Wildfire Remote Sensing Workshop


The Wildfire Remote Sensing Workshop is a 2.5 day long program within the larger EO Summit 2017. It will bring together the Canadian and international community involved that uses remote sensing as applied to wildfire. Several aspects of management and research will be addressed, including areas that relate to pre-fire monitoring and post-fire mapping. It covers the involvements from ground to space, and touches on popular topics such as the use of drones, international collaboration and the cost of fires.

On Tuesday and Wednesday morning, specific abstract-based presentations will be in parallel break-out sessions, interrupted by short periods of general discussion. For suggested topics for abstracts, please see the list below. Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning will be reserved for panel discussions with Canadian and international representatives from the federal and provincial government, industry and academic world represented in the panels.

As a general EO Summit participant your access will not only be limited to the Wildfire Remote Sensing Workshop but you will have free participation in the complete EO Summit 2017 program which includes keynotes from renowned speakers related to other Earth Observation areas, and a number of exiting training and special events.
