Brussels, 28 Oct 2003
The second international conference for users of SPOT-VEGETATION Earth observation data will take place from 24 to 26 March 2004 in Antwerp, Belgium.
The SPOT-VEGETATION missions provide a vital capacity for operational satellite based global monitoring of the Earth's surface for the benefit of a large and diverse user community.
This event will provide users with the opportunity to present the results of their research and exchange experiences and expectations. It will also present the broad range of applications and services developed using SPOT-VEGETATION data.
Specific attention will be given to applications relating to:
- monitoring of agriculture;
- forests and rangeland;
- land cover change;
- the assessment of biosphere productivity;
- the bio-geophysical characterisation of the Earth's terrestrial surfaces.
The conference is targeted at current and potential users of SPOT-VEGETATION data, including scientists, commercial and industrial end users, and policy makers.
