GIS Congress Market Analysis and Reports | Austria Conference Series

Market Analysis - GIS Congress 2017

GIS  and  Remote Sensing conference aims to aggregate researchers, academicians, scientists and Professors from the Geographic  Information System and Remote  Sensing  community  and  to  create  a platform  for robust exchange of information on technological advances, new scientific achievements and the effectiveness of various regulatory programs towards GIS and remote sensing. It provides a premier technical forum for reporting and learning about the latest research and development, as well as for launching new applications and technologies. This shows how a GIS in combination with geological data sets can be used to solve specific geological problems. The training on digital image processing focuses on the usage of field and laboratory spectral data to gain a better understanding of Remote Sensing products. Advanced image processing techniques are introduced and applied using Landsat. We welcome all the contributors and participants to join at 2nd International Conference on GIS and Remote Sensing, October 2-3, 2017 at Vienna, Austria and it will be a perfect platform to share your research and knowledge with the professionals from all over the world. 

Importance and scope: 

The  field  of  remote  sensing  and  GIS  has  become  exciting  and  enchanting  with  rapidly  expanding opportunities.  Geographical  information  system  (GIS)  is  designed  to  capture,  store  and  manage all types of geographical data. Remote sensing is the accession of information about the object without any physical contact. There are wide range of applications in the field of GIS and remote sensing. Remote  sensing  also  replaces  expensive  and  slow  data  collection  on  the  ground,  ensuring  in  the process that areas or objects are not disturbed. 

GIS   and   Remote   Sensing   conference   will   place   a   platform   where   worldwide   researchers, academicians   and   scientists   from   the   Geographic   Information   System   and   Remote   Sensing community will aggregate to create a platform for robust exchange of information on technological advances, new   scientific   achievements   and   the   effectiveness   of   various regulatory   programs towards GIS and Remote Sensing.  It provides a premier technical forum for reporting and learning about the latest research and development, as well as for launching new applications and technologies. It will promote science and technology of the relevant fields of GIS and Remote Sensing. 

Why Vienna Austria???

Vienna is the capital and biggest city of Austria and one of the nine conditions of Austria. Vienna is Austria's essential city, with a populace of around 1.8 million (2.6 million inside the metropolitan range, about 33% of Austria's populace), and its social, financial, and political focus. It is the seventh biggest city by populace inside city restrains in the European Union. Until the start of the twentieth century, it was the biggest German-talking city on the planet, and before the part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in World War I, the city had 2 million occupants. Today, it has the second biggest number of German speakers after Berlin. Vienna is host to many significant worldwide associations, including the United Nations and OPEC. The city is situated in the eastern piece of Austria and is near the outskirts of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary. These locales cooperate in an European Centrope outskirt district. Alongside close-by Bratislava, Vienna shapes a metropolitan area with 3 million tenants. [citation needed] In 2001, the downtown area was assigned an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

All G20 countries have GIS & Remote Sensing programmes. Five countries have spent more than USD 2 billion in 2010 (United States, China, Japan, France and the Russian Federation), with the United States leading the way at more than USD 43 billion.   

Virgin Group and Qualcomm are leading investment in a company aiming to frame a network of satellites to extend mobile coverage around the world. Some of the satellites will be launched by Virgin Galactic, the group’s division that plans to offer commercial sub-orbital flights but which is also developing a delivery service for satellites called Launcher One. Reuters said the satellite network will cost between $1.5 billion and $2 billion. They will be positioned to orbit the earth at an altitude of around 750 miles.
