The Pecora 20 conference will be held November 13-16, 2017, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
With emphasis on recent significant developments in remote sensing, the theme of Pecora 20 is “Observing a Changing Earth: Science for Decisions…Monitoring, Assessment, and Projection.” This conference will offer a program on applications of satellite and other Earth observations to monitor, assess, and perform projections of future land and water resources, as well as big data and other analytical technologies to improve decision making utilizing satellite data.
The Pecora symposium series was established by the USGS and NASA in the 1970s as a forum to: 1) foster the exchange of scientific information and results derived from applications of Earth observing data to a broad range of land-based resources; and 2) discuss ideas, policies, and strategies concerning land remote sensing.
The preliminary program, list of plenary and town hall sessions, and workshops are now available to review at the conference website: http://pecora.asprs.org/conference-overview/.
