JURSE 2015

30 March - 01 April 2015

Organisation: Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) / University of Lausanne

Location: Lausanne, Switzerland

Forum Overview:

JURSE is a forum of excellence where researchers, practitioners and students in urban remote sensing will present and discuss their latest findings and results. This event is committed to introduce innovative methodologies and technological resources recently employed to investigate urban environments through orbital and airborne remote sensing.

Emerging topics like new methods for urban land cover and land use classification with detailed discrimination of urban targets, 3D modelling of urban buildings, forecast and impact assessment of natural and man-made hazards in urban areas, urban social studies, urban ecology as well as data fusion, algorithms and techniques for remotely sensed data interpretation, and multisource remote sensing data will be approached, aiming to address pressing questions and offer effective solutions in urban remote sensing but also to unravel new possibilities for the interpretation, processing, fusion, and application of remotely sensed data in urban investigations.
