Remote Sensing for the Energy Sector Workshop

GRSG North America: September 01 2021

The increasing demand for energy and natural resources on a finite planet must be balanced by their sustainable discovery, extraction, and production.

Remote sensing and associated geospatial technologies support this objective by providing crucial information to decision-makers at every stage of energy and resource projects.

This first Virtual Geological Remote Sensing Group (GRSG) North America Energy Workshop aims to provide sessions detailing use-cases, applications, and technologies covering the full range of applications of remote sensing within energy industries.

The workshop will encompass sessions involving the mature, operational applications of remote sensing across the energy sector, as well as sessions detailing beneficial cutting-edge technologies, workflows, and use-cases.
