37th annual symposium of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society

IGARSS 2017 technical program along with several special sessions are designed to provide cross-disciplinary relationships needed to address the many challenging problems in remote sensing. IGARSS 2017 also features the novel week-long Technology, Industry, and Education (TIE) Forum that runs concurrent with the technical program. The TIE forum will feature many current topics in remote sensing, from research and education to technology transfer and applications.

The 2017 IEEE GRSS Data Fusion Contest, organized annually by the Image Analysis and Data Fusion Technical Committee, aims to promote the progress on data fusion and analysis of methodologies for multisource remote sensing data. In the year 2017, the task of the contest was to perform an automatic classification of the land use (Local Climate Zones, LCZ) in various urban environments. This task represents high importance for nowadays researchers due to rapid population growth and continuous climate change.
