About CIG Annual Conference
CIG Annual Conferences are a series of annual conferences organized by the Canadian Institute of Geomatics (CIG), which provides a platform for the geomatics professionals, researchers, scientists, students and others from Canada and other countries around the world to exchange advances in geospatial information science, technology and practice as well as land surveying engineering. The last annual conference was held in Toronto, Canada in 2007, which marked the 100th annual conference.
Global change is one of most important and active research topics worldwide. Earth observation science and technology has proved a very powerful means to study global changes. The International Conference on Earth Observation for Global Changes is designed to advance research and development as well as encourage innovative applications of geomatics technologies in global change studies, to meet the scientific, technical, and business needs of the remote sensing and photogrammetry, surveying and mapping, as well as geosciences, marine science, forestry, renewable energy, environment, transportation, and disaster management communities. The Earth Observation for Global Changes (EOGC) conference series has been a bi-annual event since 2006, endorsed by the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS), the International Cartographic Association (ICA), the International Association of Geodesy (IAG), and the International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE). The first three events were held in Madrid, Spain (2006), Chengdu, China (2009), and Munich, Germany (2011).
