Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR)
"A light detection and ranging sensor that uses a laser (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) radar to transmit a light pulse and a receiver with sensitive detectors to measure the backscattered or reflected light. Distance to the object is determined by recording the time between transmitted and backscattered pulses and by using the speed of light to calculate the distance traveled." (National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 2018)
Comment l'espace a révolutionné les affaissements?
Traduit de l'anglais par Mussa Kachunga Stanis
L’affaissement de terrain est un phénomène mondial et se définit comme :
"Un tassement progressif ou un affaissement soudain de la surface de la Terre dû à l'enlèvement ou au déplacement de matériaux terrestres souterrains" - National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (2021)
Mind the mapping gap between the ocean and coastal zones
Do you know that about 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered in water, yet it remains unmapped? As NASA oceanographer Dr. Gene Feldman said,
“We have better maps of the surface of Mars and the moon than we do of the bottom of the ocean.”
But can all these vast blue portions of the universe be explored and mapped like the Mars, which is 54.6 million kilometers away from us, but have nearly 90% of its surface mapped? "Well, that's the million-dollar question, isn't it?"

Now in its 14th edition, Geospatial World Forum (GWF) has become a not-to-be-missed conference for the professionals engaged in geospatial and allied sectors. It is a collaborative and interactive platform that demonstrates the collective and shared vision of the global geospatial community.
ISPRS Geospatial Week 2023
The ISPRS will host the first Geospatial Week in Africa and Middle East in Egypt, 2023; with the the "Remote Sensing for Better Future". The ISPRS Geospatial Week (GSW) is a combination of workshops organised by about 30 ISPRS Working Groups active in areas of interest of ISPRS.The GSW will provide a platform for international scholars, graduate students, future scientists and industrial sectors to learn exchange knowledge and experiences of applying geospatial technologies for sustainable development for better quality of life for people around the world.
