September 2000

EO Satellites Workshop/WGISS Subgroups Meetings
Sept. 11-15, 2000 - co-hosted by the National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT) and the National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA); local organizers Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Chulalongkorn University and RESTEC. The workshop will be held Sept. 11 & 12 at AIT, and will include demonstrations of remote sensing applications related to earth resources monitoring, particularly in South East Asia, as well as technology for data discovery, visualization and access. The subgroups meetings will be held at Chula University following the workshop, and will include discussions about the new WGISS Test Facility to promote data and information exchange. Although both events have broader agendas, GOFC-GOLD will be a major focus of each.
