Technical Committees

Modeling in Remote Sensing

The mission of the Modeling in Remote Sensing Technical Committee (MIRS TC) is to serve as a technical and professional forum for advancing the science of predicting remotely sensed observations from first-principles theory.

Geoscience Spaceborne Imaging Spectroscopy

The Geoscience Spaceborne Imaging Spectroscopy Technical Committee (GSIS TC) provides a community of practice for all stakeholders engaged in spaceborne imaging spectroscopy with an emphasis on geoscientific applications.

Image Analysis and Data Fusion

The Image Analysis and Data Fusion Technical Committee (IADF TC) of the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society serves as a global, multi-disciplinary, network for geospatial image analysis and data fusion.

Frequency Allocations in Remote Sensing

The Frequency allocations in Remote Sensing (FARS) Technical Committee goal is to interface between GRSS and the radio-frequency regulatory world, and keep track of spectrum allocation issues that impact the geoscience community.

Instrumentation and Future Technologies

The Instrumentation and Future Technologies (IFT) Technical Committee of the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society serves as a global, multi-disciplinary, network to foster international cooperation in advancing the state-of-the-art in geoscience remote sensing instrumentation and technologies.

Earth Science Informatics

The Earth Science Informatics Technical Committee (ESI TC) provides a venue for informatics professionals to exchange ideas and share knowledge. It aims at advancing application of informatics to geosciences and remote sensing, assessing technology to support data stewardship and management, and promoting best practices and lessons learned.
