The IDEA Program shall Inspire, Develop, Empower, and Advance (IDEA) all GRSS members and affiliates of accredited societies who are interested in the fields of interest of the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS). We celebrate, support and thrive on our differences for the benefit of our members and our GRSS community. The committee is responsible for planning and organizing activities across regions, chapters, and conferences to develop, empower, and advance engineers and scientists from diverse backgrounds (technical, regional, gender, etc.), and inspire members around the world to follow their technical interests to a career in geoscience and remote sensing. The committee also strives to inspire a future generation of engineers and scientists through various groups working with students at all levels of academics. The IDEA committee envisions a vibrant GRSS community collectively using their diverse talents to innovate for the benefit of humanity.
