Geo4Dev was a 2-day symposium and workshop on September 6-7, 2017 focused on the application of remote sensing and geospatial analysis to address issues of poverty, sustainable development, urbanization, climate change and economic growth in developing countries. The event aimed to expand the reach of remote sensing to faculty, graduate students, implementers, donors, and tech companies involved in research on international development.
Day 1 launched with a symposium showcasing scientific presentations and posters form leading researchers utilizing geospatial analytics from a multitude of disciplines. The Geo4Dev Symposium solicited papers to be presented at the event through an open call.
Development Engineering will be hosted a cocktail reception at the conclusion of Geo4Dev’s Day 1 Symposium.
Day 2 featured a geospatial data workshop, providing introductory training from academics and tech-sector partners in the use of new tools, data, and platforms for geospatial analytics.
Partnering with the Journal of Development Engineering, this event resulted in a special issue focused on geospatial analysis for international development.
The 2nd Annual Symposium on Geospatial Analysis for International Development (Geo4Dev) will focus on geospatial research that addresses climate- and conflict-driven migration and humanitarian response. This includes observation and modeling of migration and human settlement patterns (in response...
