ASPRS Past President Kass Green Keynoting ESRI Remote Sensing and GIS 2009

                                  Exploiting Imagery for More Efficient Information Management to Be Addressed

Redlands, California—April 9, 2009—Kass Green, Past President of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, will keynote ESRI's Remote Sensing and GIS 2009 to be held Sunday, July 12, in conjunction with the ESRI International User Conference (ESRI UC) at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. The ESRI UC is the world's largest conference dedicated to geographic information system (GIS) technology.

Green is president of Kass Green & Associates and consults on geospatial strategy, technology, and policy issues to private, educational, and public organizations. Green serves on the boards of several for-profit and nonprofit organizations and is currently a member of the U.S. Department of Interior's National Geospatial Advisory Committee. Green also serves on the University of California, Berkeley, Foundation Board of Trustees as well as the university's College of Natural Resources Advisory Committee and Geospatial Information Facility Advisory Committee. An author of numerous book chapters and articles, Green's 20 years of research and application development focuses on the integration of GIS and remote sensing for environmental and policy analysis. Her textbook, Assessing the Accuracy of Remotely Sensed Data, coauthored with Russ Congalton, was recently released in its second edition. Having given several hundred research presentations throughout the world at various conferences and published articles in numerous journals, Green is looking forward to addressing the community of ESRI imagery users.

"I am pleased to be part of this event and to discuss the state of imagery and new trends that are appearing," says Green. "This is an exciting time for GIS users to capitalize on remotely sensed data to get the most out of their geospatial information."

Last year's inaugural event drew more than 200 ESRI users interested in exploring the integrated management and use of imagery and other raster data in geospatial production. Those in attendance included national mapping agencies, state and local governments, university educators, and defense contractors.

"It is our goal to bring together industry visionaries like Kass Green to share their perspectives on imagery," says Mark Cygan, industry solutions manager, ESRI. "Our users benefit from this forum by listening to how others have used the technology to their advantage and sharing how they have been successful in their own organizations."
