Speaker: STEVEN J. STEINBERG, PH.D., MPA, GISP
Meeting Date: July 21, 2021
This presentation will provide an overview of how local governments use geospatial data and tools with specific examples of image-based data analysts and extraction and propose opportunities to extend these capabilities further by leveraging machine learning methods with an every-expanding pallet of remotely sensed data acquired from sUAS systems (drones) and other field, airborne and spaceborne remote sensing systems.
