ASPRS 2014 Annual Conference

 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).

Tell Me About ASPRS 2014

The conference theme: Power in Our Pockets, refers to the technological power of pocket sized devices in our world today. The conference will focus on the various tools, applications, software and overall abilities of technology in the geospatial industry today.

There are LOTS of changes happening for ASPRS conferences! Here are just a few you will see in 2014:

  •     JACIE Workshop co-location
  •     Unmanned Aerial Systems Showcase
  •     Recruitment Way Table Tops
  •     Increased Exhibitor/Attendee Face-time
  •     New session tracks for practical applications
  •     Redesigned conference programs
  •     Presenter abstracts available online

Who Attends?

More than 1,000 imaging and geospatial information professionals gather from across the nation and from around the globe for ASPRS Annual Conferences. And this year, we are expecting a record attendance with the co-location of the JACIE Workshop.

Attendees are mid- and upper-level imaging and geospatial managers from corporations, government agencies, consultants, educators, reseachers, students and field surveyors.

Don’t Stop at implementation: How to Meet Clients’ Goals through Marketing Support

Kim Hansen

You can implement the most innovative and effective geospatial programs for a client, but if no one knows about them, how effective are they really? Many clients don’t sustain a marketing communication department because they simply don’t have the budget or full-time need. But most geospatial firms do. Over the past few years, we’ve started bringing our marketing communications team in as an additional add-on to a program or service we’re implementing for a municipality or even state, helping to strategically get the word out. In the end, the ROI on the program rises and we build better relationships with these clients. This presentation will provide ideas on how firms can utilize their marketing departments to help support clients business goals and objective and how clients can start asking for this support to be built into key programs and projects.

Power in Our Pockets: Funding National Geospatial Production Programs

Alan M. Mikuni

National geospatial data and related activities are a significant National infrastructure asset that contributes to the National economy and is critical to the conduct of all manner of public and private activities. Conventional National-level funding methods, like annual Federal agency budget requests and subsequent Congressional authorizations and appropriations for geospatial data and programs, are inadequate to keep pace with the demands of the user community for current and accurate geospatial data. On-going efforts to justify and request additional appropriations, or to reinvigorate or re-engineer the Federal budgetary processes for geospatial activities have been unsuccessful.  As these National data sets age and become less timely and less accurate and as the technology and the appson the millions of pocket- and handheld-systems to use these data become more sophisticated, the value of these data will continue to diminish relative to the expectations of the user community. Whether in daily use, or in times of critical need, such as, during emergency situations, the shortcomings of data that are not up-to-date and accurate become most evident, and perhaps even life-threatening. Investments must be made in maintaining the utility of these National datasets, and the Federal budget processes are not doing the job. The power in the pockets: Why not have the users of the myriad pocket-sized geospatially-enabled devices that use these National datasets contribute small, individual, fees (pocket change?) that will accumulate into a larger Federal trust fund needed for the National datasets: a Geospatial User Fee and Trust Fund? Rather than buying a specific data set, the citizens paying these user fees are contributing to the maintenance of all National geospatial data sets and supporting all geospatial activities.  The concept of a user fee is not new.  This topic will address some of the background, and on-going efforts by a working group of the Management Association of Private Photogrammetric Surveyors (MAPPS) to explore the feasibility of, and the logistics for, pursuing such an initiative.

Risk Management in Geospatial Projects

Robert Crawford

Risk Management in Geospatial Projects

Abstract: No matter how well we plan and organize our projects, the odds are something outside the plan will happen to throw our project off-track. This something could impact schedule, cost, quality or any combination of the triple constraints.  If at the beginning of the project we can identify potential events or risks that will have project impact; categorize each by its magnitude of impact and likelihood to occur; and develop a risk management plan to mitigate or eliminate these impacts we can lead a much more successful project.  In this presentation we will explore a simple and basic approach to risk management.
