Details :

Remote sensing satellites are playing very important roles in diverse earth observation fields. However, long revisit period, high cost and dense cloud cover have been the main limitations of satellite remote sensing for a long time. This talk will introduce the novel high frequent earth observation based on an urban skyline and passenger aircraft. By obtaining aerial imaging data using a portable smartphone on the urban skyline or passenger aircraft, it has various advantages including low cost, high revisit, dense coverage, and anti-cloud, which can well complement conventional remote sensing data. This approach has great potential to aid the rapid response to emergencies such as city fires, landslides, and floods.
