GHRC represented at IGARSS 2014 meeting


Global Hydrology Resource Center (GHRC) DAAC Manager R. Ramachandran participated in the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) Administrative Committee meeting July 11-12 in Quebec City, Canada. He chaired two sessions at the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS 2014) conference, July 14-18. The first session, titled “Advancing Science through Management of the Geospatial Data Lifecycle,” focused on the role standards play at each stage in the sequence of processes by which knowledge is generated from geoscience observations, simulations and analysis. The second session on "Implications of Big Data to Remote Sensing” explored the emerging big data technologies for processing and analysis of remote sensing data sets. Dr. Ramachandran also presented his work on ontology-based data curation in a poster session. In his role as the chair of the GRSS Earth Science Informatics Technical Committee (ESI TC), he held a technical meeting during the conference focusing on new ESI TC initiatives and future conference sessions.
