BETHESDA, Md. -- The Joint Agency Commercial Imagery Evaluation (JACIE) team will hold the 2014 JACIE Workshop in conjunction with the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Annual Conference in Louisville, Ky. on March 23-27, 2014. The announcement was made by the JACIE team and keynote speaker Roberta Lenczowski (ASPRS past president) during the workshop in Saint Louis in April.

The 2014 JACIE Workshop will be held Wednesday through Friday, beginning on March 26 as a separate track at the ASPRS meeting. The program planning will integrate some key speakers and highlights into a few ASPRS special and/or hot topics sessions. In addition, ASPRS will provide attendees of the JACIE Workshop the opportunity to register for a combined JACIE/ASPRS experience that will allow JACIE attendees to visit the ASPRS Conference Exhibit Hall as well as ASPRS General and Technical Sessions, as time permits during the week of the JACIE Workshop.

“Holding the JACIE Workshop in conjunction with the ASPRS Conference is a win-win for ASPRS and JACIE both technically and programmatically; the ability to allow government and industry technical experts a common forum to discuss how to enhance the quality of remote sensing systems and data to better support societal need applications is invaluable,” said Greg Stensaas, JACIE spokesman, U.S. Geological Survey.

“This is a great opportunity to bring together the large government agencies with private industry and end users of the remote sensing data,” said ASPRS President Elect Dr. Stewart Walker. “Our exhibitors will be pleased to see the inclusion of the JACIE Workshop with the ASPRS Conference.”
