 Geospatial Power in Our Pockets

& co-located JACIE Workshop
Joint Agency Commercial Imagery Evaluation (JACIE) Workshop

Louisville, Kentucky USA   *  March 23-28, 2014  *  The Galt House Hotel

Join the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing(ASPRS) for the 2014 Annual Conference as we head to the home of the Kentucky Derby, the Louisville Slugger baseball bat and Southern Hospitality, Louisville, Kentucky, March 23 - 27, 2014!

This year we are excited to welcome the JACIE Workshop to co-locate in Louisville. The JACIE Workshop will be held March 26 - 28, 2014 at the Galt House Hotel and will be combining a general session and special technical sessions throughout the week with the ASPRS Conference. This is an exciting partnership for both organizations!


The intent of the JACIE workshop is to exchange information regarding the characterization and application of the commercial imagery used by the government. This workshop is focused on the synergy of high, medium and low resolution imagery and remote sensing technologies used by the Government. This workshop is sponsored by the Joint Agency Commercial Imagery Evaluation (JACIE) team, a collaborative group of representatives from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Value of PMP Certification for the Geospatial Professional

Value of PMP Certification for the Geospatial Professional. The Project Management Institutes Project Management Professional (PMP) credential is arguably one of the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers.  Globally recognized, and in high demand, this credential demonstrates an individual’s experience, education and competency to lead and direct projects.   All geospatial projects have project management constraints including those related to data management and workflow optimization and integration of quickly evolving technologies into existing processes and requirements.  PMP certification supports in the identification of improved methods, their integration and implementation, and consideration of long-term project management considerations including personnel and resource planning and management.  During this session, we will discuss the value of having PMP-certified Geospatial Professionals, including benefits gained preparing for the exam.  Through the PMP certification process, professionals develop, enhance and reinforce real-world project management skills.  As this credential is tightly connected to The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), PMPs learn to incorporate the PMBOK’s precise language and standardized terminology that resonates with executives, fellow project managers and team members.  This common language reduces the need for explanations when discussing project plans and brainstorming best ways to move forward.  PMPs demonstrate the specific project management skills necessary for the PMBOK’s Nine Knowledge Areas typical of almost all projects:  Integration, Scope, Time, Cost, Quality, Human Resource, Communications, Risk, and Procurement.  Through use of these skills, PMPs are able to help your business become more efficient and realize greater project success.  Additionally, having PMPs lead your projects may even make company more attractive to prospective clients.
