Scientist are able to gather data better than ever before. This session highlights impressive forms of remote sensing, and its impacts on a city, several different species, and an ancient civilization.

  • Archeology & Remote Sensing
             Nevio Danelon
    This presentation will present the GIS and Remote Sensing applications for the Duke University Department of Classical Studies Archeology Research. GIS analysis & especially the clues revealed by remotely sensed data are giving researchers more evidence & insights to ancient civilizations.

  • Wildlife Tracking in the 21st Century: There's No Place to Hide
             Rob Bierregaard
    Since the first animal (an elk) ever to be tracked via satellite in 1970, technology has made amazing progress, and the opportunities to monitor animals weighing only a few ounces anywhere on the earth are truly remarkable. Questions that we couldn’t even dream of asking are now being answered. Rob Bierregaard will review the wide variety of tools available to remotely track wildlife and present some discoveries that he has made in his 15 years of studying Osprey and Barred Owl movement.

  • Cape Hatteras National Seashore - Real-time Data Management
             Leslie Frattarol
    Cape Hatteras has developed a real-time rare bird sighting application that gives their staff the ability to make a quick judgement on beach closures at the park. The public facing beach closure site gives the community quick access to beach recreation availability.
