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!

About JACIE

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.

Contemporary Issues in Geospatial Data Archiving and Preservation

Jeffrey Young

This session will describe a range of contemporary issues and considerations in geospatial data preservation and archiving. For the purposes of discussion, preservation is defined as the process of protecting map and image-related, analog and digital, materials from deterioration or damage and the establishment of archival procedures to ensure technical, contextual and intellectual survival of, and access to, authoritative records over time. Best practices of preservation and archiving are of great interest to ASPRS Data Preservation and Archiving Committee (DPAC) and, we anticipate, the ASPRS community at large  as well. The presenter is a member of DPAC. A portion of this session is intended to be interactive where current practices in the West will be discussed by participants. The assumption being, best practices are well worth compiling and sharing across international, federal, state, local, academic and private user communities. Practitioners and organizations managing large stores of observational and compiled geospatial data will gain from sharing their approaches to ensure data integrity, usability, and usefulness, and for mitigating risks of harming those archival assets.

Best Practices in Archiving and Preservation of Imagery and Geospatial Data

Lluis Colomer, Jeff Young, and Bob Pope

This Data Preservation and Archiving Committee (DPAC) sponsored special session will provide ASPRS members with DPAC best practices, lessons learned, and real world experience from geospatial data archives representing different organizational levels.  Perspectives from European members as well as the federal, legal and private sectors will be represented.  Organizations managing petabytes of observational and geospatial data will share their procedures for ensuring data integrity, usability, usefulness, and for mitigating risks.  Each presenter will describe his/her organization’s policy, methodology, and technological approach to preserving geospatial data, thus providing a valuable source for preservation management.  One session will provide details on the forensics perspective of aerial archives in civil and criminal law cases.  The last session will highlight specific DPAC guidance applicable to all ASPRS members and also share what topic areas the Committee is working on.

Taming Very Big Data

Lewis Graham

Production workflows in imagery and point cloud processing involve not big data but very big data.  A major cost driver in our industry is the storage, movement and management of these data sets.  In this presentation, we will look at techniques for taming this often runaway expense.  Also considered will be the applicability of hosted (cloud) solutions for offloading some of the direct and indirect expense associated with this aspect of production.  Finally, an examination will be made of hardware expense versus Return on Investment with a focus on where cheap hardware will fit the bill.
