Sessions/Tracks

Track 1: GIS

Geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyse, manage, and present all types of spatial or geographical data. The acronym GIS is sometimes used for geographical information science or geospatial information studies to refer to the academic discipline or career of working with geographic information systems and is a large domain within the broader academic discipline of Geo informaticsGIS is a broad term that can refer to a number of different technologies, processes, and methods. It is attached to many operations and has many applications related to engineering, planning, management, transport/logistics, insurance, telecommunications, and business.

Track 2: Remote Sensing

Remote sensing is the process where the Remote sensors collect data by detecting the energy that is reflected from earth. These sensors can be on satellites or mounted on aircrafts. The electromagnetic radiation is normally used as an information carrier in remote sensing.. Remote sensors gather information by measuring the electromagnetic radiation that is reflected, emitted and absorbed by objects in various spectral regions, from gamma-rays to radio waves. To measure this radiation, both active and passive remote sensors are used. Passive remote sensors record natural sensors that is reflected or emitted from the earth surface. The most common source of detection is sunlight. Active sensors use internal stimuli to collect data about earth.

Remote sensing methods are used to gain a better understanding of the earth and its functions. A Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) is being developed to connect earth observation systems around the world. A comprehensive and coordinated system of earth observations could lead to better management of environmental data and could fulfil numerous societal benefits.

Track 3: Geodynamics

Geodynamics is the study of motion and change on Earth. It provides the quantitative foundation for the theory of Plate TectonicsVolcanism, the chemistry of lava and volcanic rocksgravity and geomagnetic anomalies as well as seismic investigations into the structure of the mantle. The basic organizing paradigm for our understanding of the Solid Earth. Geodynamics specializes in high-end Geographic Information Systems, offering a broad spectrum of GIS services from simple data conversion to complex hydrographical data processing, data modelling and analysis.

Track 4: GIS Software

Geographic Information System software is designed to store, retrieve, manage, display, and analyse all types of geographical and spatial data. GIS software lets you produce maps and other graphic displays of geographic information for analysis and presentation. With these capabilities a GIS is a valuable tool to visualize spatial data or to build decision support systems for use in multiple organizations. GIS software systems are often specialized to fit certain types of decision making. That is, they are customized to meet needs specific to demographic forecasting, transportation planningenvironmental resource analysis, urban planning, and so on. The great appeal of GIS stems from their ability to integrate great quantities of information about the environment and to provide a powerful repertoire of analytical tools to explore data.

Track 5: Digital Earth

Digital Earth concerns the integrated use of digital technologies to monitor, map, model, and manage our planet’s environment and it is the global invitation for the collaborative effort between the Earth scienceSpace science and Informative science. The Digital Earth vision was first proposed by Al Gore in 1998, and has evolved to keep pace with rapid developments in earth-sensing, cloud computing, and Big Data.

Geographic Information Systems are computer software and hardware systems that enable users to capture, store, analyse and manage spatially referenced data. GIS have transformed the way spatial geographic data, relationships and patterns in the world are able to be interactively queried, processed, analysed, mapped, modelled, visualised, and displayed for an increasingly large range of users, for a multitude of purposes.

 

Track 6: GIS IN MAPPING

Geographic Information Systems that offers a radically different way in which we produce and use the maps required to manage our communities and industries. A geographic information system (GIS) is a computer system for capturing, storing, checking, and displaying data related to positions on Earth’s surface. GIS can show many different kinds of data on one map. Once the desired data has been entered into a GIS system they can produce a wide variety of individual maps, depending on which data layers are included. GIS maps can also use to show data about density and number. GIS` technology combines database, mapping and statistical methods to integrate georeferenced data into visual displays where the relationships, patterns and trends in the data can be more easily identified.

Track 7: Seismology and Geodesy

Seismology is the study of earthquakes and seismic waves. Seismic waves are the waves of energy caused by the sudden breaking of rock within the earth or an explosion. They are the energy that travels through the earth and is recorded on seismographs. GIS helps to manage the impact of Earthquakes and other disasters by assessing risk and hazard locations in relation to populations, property, and natural resources, Integrating data and enabling understanding of the scope of an emergency to manage an incident and identifying staging area locations, operational branches and divisions, and other important incident management needs. Geodesy is the science of accurately measuring and understanding three fundamental properties of the earth its geometric shape, its orientation in space, and its gravity field as well as the changes of these properties with time. In relation to GIS, geodesy provides the fundamental framework for accurate positions on or near the Earth’s surface.

Track 8: Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)

GNSS is a satellite system that is used to pinpoint the geographic location of a user's receiver anywhere in the world. Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) include constellations of Earth-orbiting satellites that broadcast their locations in space and time, of networks of ground control stations, and of receivers that calculate ground positions by trilateration. GNSS are used in all forms of transportation: space stations, aviationmaritime, rail, road and mass transit. Positioning, navigation and timing play a critical role in telecommunications, land surveying, law enforcement, emergency response, precision agricultureminingfinance, scientific research and so on. They are used to control computer networks, air traffic, power grids and more. Two GNSS systems are currently in operation: the United States' Global Positioning System (GPS) and the Russian Federation's Global Orbiting Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS), as well as the developing global and regional systems, namely Europe’s European Satellite Navigation System (GALILEO) and China’s COMPASS/BeiDou, India’s Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) and Japan’s Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS). Once all these global and regional systems become fully operational, the user will have access to positioning, navigation and timing signals from more than 100 satellites.

Track 9: GIS in Disaster management

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing (RS) are very useful and effective tools in disaster management. Various disasters like earthquakeslandslidesfloodsfirestsunamisvolcanic eruptions and cyclones are natural hazards that kill lots of people and destroy property and infrastructures every year. Landslides are the most regular geological vulnerabilities in mountain regions. Remotely sensed data can be used very efficiently to assess severity and impact of damage due to these disasters. In the disaster relief phase, GIS, grouped with global positioning system (GPS) is extremely useful in search and rescue operations in areas that have been devastated and where it is difficult to find one’s bearings. Disaster mapping is the drawing of areas that have been through excessive natural or man-made troubles to the normal environment where there is a loss of life, property and national infrastructures.

Track 10: GIS Market

The most important component of Geographic Information Systems is its requirement for spatial data. Spatial data is any kind of information that has been collected, compiled, or processed with a spatial component, that is, a tie to a geographic location on the surface of the Earth. It so happens that this is a large segment of the spatial industry, often consuming an appreciable portion of dollars assigned to GIS implementation projects. Spatial data management is increasingly a consideration in any information management system (IMS) due to the fact that large amounts of data are being collected with spatial components. Businesses and government organizations are realizing that a traditional IMS does not allow an organization to leverage the value of spatial information inherent in their data. This has led to the development of software tools as extensions to commercial Data Management Systems (DMS) that allow for better storage, manipulation, and query of spatial data.

Why New Orleans USA???

New Orleans  is a major United States port and the largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana. The city is named after the Duke of Orleans, who reigned as Regent for Louis XV from 1715 to 1723, as it was established by French colonists and strongly influenced by their European culture. It is well known for its distinct French and Spanish Creole architecture, as well as its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage. New Orleans is also famous for its cuisine, music, and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras, dating to French colonial times. The city is often referred to as the "most unique" in the United States and it is located in south-eastern Louisiana, straddling the Mississippi River. New Orleans' colonial history of French and Spanish settlement has resulted in a strong Catholic tradition. Catholic missions administered to slaves and free people of color, establishing schools for them. Tourism is another staple of the city's economy. Perhaps more visible than any other sector, New Orleans' tourist and convention industry is a $5.5 billion juggernaut that accounts for 40 percent of New Orleans' tax revenues. In 2004, the hospitality industry employed 85,000 people, making it New Orleans' top economic sector as measured by employment totals. The city also hosts the World Cultural Economic Forum (WCEF). The forum, held annually at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center, is directed toward promoting cultural and economic development opportunities through the strategic convening of cultural ambassadors and leaders from round the world.
