The first GeoDC meetup of 2013 is happening tomorrow, Wednesday, January 9, at 7:00 pm at Stetson’s Bar and will focus on satellites. Speakers will give insight on satellite constellations, the imagery they capture, and how to use it. If you’re curious about how satellite imagery is captured and what those satellites are focused on, come out for this meetup.
Then Mark Dumas and Greg Lavonas from GeoEye and DigitalGlobe respectively - the two leading satellite imagery providers in the United States - will talk about their satellites, the imagery they collect, and how to access it. Mark will also talk about how his team uses satellite imagery maps to create predictive maps for decision makers, while Greg will talk about how they capture imagery to help understand current events.
GeoDC meets once a month, usually on the first Wednesday of each month. For updates on meetups, follow @Geo_DC on Twitter and join the meetup group.
