In an exclusive interview with Geospatial Media Bob Ryerson of Kim Geomatics, Canada explains how remote sensing is useful for development.
We have discovered that remote sensing is extremely useful for all elements of development
People who derive benefits from remote sensing tend not to understand the technology.
We need to develop better understanding network and explain ourselves to senior policy makers, politicians and bureaucrats as they are the decision makers.
Early indications are that in future Canadian government will be making decisions based on science.
India sets a great example by giving importance to geospatial technology.
In the coming years there will be huge implications of geospatial technology in climate change.
We do have lots of data but all of that is not best data.
We need to understand which data is useful for which purpose.
I advocate clear and open access to data.
