Event 28th EARSeL Symposium & Workshops "Remote Sensing for a Changing Europe" - 8th workshop of the GIS in Developing Countries network Integrating GIS and Remote Sensing in a Dynamic World -

For the first time, this workshop brings together experts from EARSeL and GISDECO networks. Especially for developing countries, integration of Remote Sensing and GIS offers unique access to primary data on the status of land surfaces, as well as possibilities for analysis, visua-lisation and development of possible solutions of problems, which due to dynamic changes both nature and humanity are exposed to. Global urbanisation, climate change and its effects on natural and human systems, land use and land cover changes, and salinisation are imminent dangers.

The workshop provides a forum for presenting and dis-cussing results, and to exchange expertise and experience among researchers and users engaged in solving the pro-blems of developing countries.
