Urban Sensing - Implications for New York and Cities around the world.
It was great to accept an invitation from the Center for Urban Science and Progress - New York University to deliver a talk and participate in a panel on urban sensing and the role of geospatial technology. My pitch was to apply space borne and airborne imagery and imaging spectrometer data to extract critical spatial and temporal information about the urban environment. The applications of geospatial technology must be application driven and not necessarily data centric. We also need to be clear about the definition of Smart City and understand remotely sensed data its resolution characteristics comprehensively before investigating it.
