Geo-informatics Technology for Environmental and Disaster Monitoring


Geo-informatics Technology for Environmental and Disaster Monitoring

October 28th-30th,2015 at Sirindhorn Center for Geo-informatics (SCGI),

Space Krenovation Park, Chonburi, Thailand

Background and Objectives

In order to enhance science, technology and innovation cooperation between China and Thailand, the Ministry of Science and Technology of China launched the first project under “China-ASEAN STEP”–constructing Remote Sensing Satellite Data Sharing and Service Platform on September 22nd, 2012 to advance the integration in technology between China and ASEAN. This project will encourage experience sharing of science and technology development, improve technology strength in ASEAN, and speed up the development of economy, society and culture in ASEAN.

The aim of the project is to construct the remote sensing satellite data sharing and service platform in ASEAN member states and share China’s remote sensing satellite data with them in such fields as agricultural yield estimation, environment monitoring, disaster prevention and control, city management, promote the development of economy and society for benefit the people from this region.

In September 2014, the platform has been successfully installed in Thailand responded by Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (Public Organization): GISTDA.This platform provides the China–Brazil Earth Resources Satellite 4 (CBERS-4) data products to government agencies, private sector and NGOs in Thailand. The platform also conducts typical applications/ pilot projects in the field of agriculture, disaster and land resources.

This year, on 10 July 2015, three identical <1m small satellites were successfully launched to form the first dedicated very high-resolution optical civil commercial Earth observation constellation – TripleSat Constellation, which is operated by Twenty First Century Aerospace Technology Co., Ltd. (21AT). The constellation will offer daily revisiting capability worldwide, which is essential for applications that require responsive image acquisition and dynamic monitoring for agriculture, urban development, land resources and disaster mitigation.

This course, organized by GISTDA in collaboration with The National Remote Sensing Center of China (NRSCC) and China Centre for Resources Satellite Data and Application (CRESDA),will increase and improve personal capability in geo-informatics applications for sustainable development focusing remote sensing analysis techniques utilized freely access satellite data, CBERS-04,for variety of applications.
