Irish Earth Observation Symposium

Registration is now open click  Register Button

The annual Irish Earth Observation Symposium provides an opportunity for those working in the Irish Earth Observation sector to meet and present their work. Earth observation in Ireland is growing hugely in both academia and the private sector. These changes are driven by the easy availability of data from drones to the Copernicus program, and rapid developments in processing automation, product delivery, and machine learning. The potential for earth observation techniques to answer important national questions has never been higher.
