Dr. Iphigenia Keramitsoglou, the Associate Researcher at the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing (IAASARS) of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), presented the synergic result of two advanced methodologies for monitoring and thermal urban environment, Oct. 23, 2013. The aim of this research is to downscale the geostationary land surface temperature, to extract the surface urban heat island patterns, and to estimate heat wave hazard and risk. Then the collaboration between CUEC and NOA to fulfill the objectives of the Global Urban Observation and Information work task of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) was discussed.
Center for Urban and Environmental Change organized a mini-workshop on Innovative Geospatial Techniques in Urban and Regional Development and Management on July 28, 2012. Mr. Jim Stout, the Program Manager of IMAGIS, Indianapolis, Indiana, updated the recent progresses of Indiana Ortho and LIDAR program; Dr. Yandong Wang, the Director of Photogrammetric Engineering at Pictometry International Corp., Rochester, New York, introduced oblique imagery technique and its applications; Prof. Keqi Zhang, the Director of Florida Hurricane Center, Florida International University, presented the real time storm surge forecasting and visualization evaluation; Prof. Guangxin Wang from Department of Geography and Environment, University of Southern Illinois, Carbondale, Illinois explained his research on spatial joint simulation; And Prof. Qihao Weng, the Director of Center for Urban and Environmental Change, Indiana State University shared his insight on climate change, urban heat island effects and mitigation strategies.
February 2007, Dr. Guofan Shao from Purdue gave a talk on "Use & misuse of digital remote sensing data for land use mapping". This program was sponsored by CUEC and Department of Geography, Geology and Anthropology (GGA), Indiana State University.
