At this years AIAA Space 2014 conference a panel of experts discussed the Use of Space-Based Earth Remote Sensing Data in Support of Scientific and Societal Needs.
In this session, representatives of agencies, organizations, and communities that make use of space-based remote sensing data in support of scientific and societal needs will discuss those uses, including both those now carried out using existing data, as well as potential future uses based on the data that are anticipated to become available in the future. Uses will cover topics such as operational forecasting/prediction, resource management, policy development, scientific assessment, and commercial product development.
