American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Founded in 1934, the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is a scientific association serving over 7,000 professional members around the world. Their mission is to advance knowledge and improve understanding of mapping sciences to promote the responsible applications of photogrammetry, remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and supporting technologies.
IEEE Geoscience & Remote Sensing Society The Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society seeks to advance science and technology in geoscience, remote sensing and related fields through scientific, technical and educational activities through conferences, meetings, workshops, publications and their web site.
International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing An international NGO devoted to the development of international cooperation for the advancement of knowledge, research, development, and education in the photogrammetry, remote sensing, and spatial information sciences, their integration and application, to contribute the wellbeing of humanity and sustainability of the environment.
Remote Control Aerial Photography Association A professional association of dedicated remote control aerial photographers. RCAPA® provides operational safety guidelines, best business practices, networking information and new technology information.
DIY Drones This is a resource for all things about amateur Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs): How-to's, links, videos, images and a discussion group. Among other things, this is where we'll be listing all the parts, software and instructions to build each of our UAVs.
Unmanned Aircraft Program Office (UAPO) This is the office of the FAA responsible for the development of a civilian UAV policy.
UAV Capability Assessment This document presents the findings of a NASA led capabilities assessment of Uninhabited Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for civil use.
Dr. Nicholas Short's The Remote Sensing Tutorial This Remote Sensing Tutorial will help you understand what you can learn from sensors on spacecraft that look inward at the Earth and outward at the planets, the galaxies and, going back in time, the cosmos. A solid technical explanation of the core principles of remote sensing.
Encyclopedia of Earth The Encyclopedia of Earth is a new electronic reference about the Earth, its natural environments, and their interaction with society. The Encyclopedia is a free, fully searchable collection of articles written by scholars, professionals, educators, and experts who collaborate and review each other's work. The articles are written in non-technical language and will be useful to students, educators, scholars, professionals, as well as to the general public. This is a good place to look at scientific applications of remote sensing.
