Conference «Earth and Space» 2020

News

On October 20-21, 2020, International scientific conference “Earth and Space” commemorating the birth centenary of Professor Kirill Ya. Kondratyev took place in St. Petersburg.

The conference was organized by St. Petersburg Scientific Research Centre for Ecological Safety of the RAS (division of St. Petersburg Federal Research Center of the RAS), St. Petersburg Research Center of the RAS and Scientific Foundation “Nansen International Environmental and Remote Sensing Centre”.

On section “Research of the Earth from Space” LITSAM chief researcher Viacheslav Zelentsov presented a report:

Information technology and a system for the implementation of interdisciplinary projects and the creation of thematic services using Earth remote sensing data (Authors: Zelentsov V.A., Pimanov I.Yu., Ponomarenko M.R., Potriasaev S.A., Semenov A.E.).

The report included description of an architecture and examples of information technologies and systems implementation for automating interdisciplinary projects accomplishment and creating thematic services that require use of Earth remote sensing data. The research is partially supported by “Innovative information technologies for analysis of negative impact on the crossborder region forests (KS1309 InnoForestView)”.

BalticSatApps on IT Dialogue 2020

News

On October 02, 2020, within the framework of the All-Russian Forum “IT Dialogue”, a round table “Possibilities of using satellite data provided by Copernicus Program for managing the development of territories” was held. The event was organized by BalticSatApps project partners from Russia to raise awareness of the possibilities of applying Earth observation data and technologies, especially – data provided by European Copernicus program.

At the event, LITSAM representative Ponomarenko M.R. made a report “Potential of applying Earth observation data to manage the development of territories” and discussed talking about the possibilities of using this data and already implemented projects in this area.

The interface for interaction of Russian users with remote sensing data (including Copernicus data), developed within BalticSatApps project with the support of LITSAM specialists, was also demonstrated.
