19th International Scientific and Technical conference “FROM IMAGERY TO DIGITAL REALITY: ERS & Photogrammetry”
Date: 28 - 31 October 2019
The 19th International Scientific and Technical Conference “From imagery to digital reality: ERS & Photogrammetry” will be held October 28 to 31, 2019, in Seoul, the Republic of Korea.
Determining the venue for the annual Racurs conference is not an easy task. The choice of one country over another is based on the vision of the market, partners’ activity, users’ interest, and our curiosity. Our decision to move to the East, to the Republic of Korea, was easier than ever. Korea is a unique country in relation to Russia. Despite the close location, this country is still very mysterious in terms of culture and technology.
The culture of “pali-pali” (faster-faster) allowed South Korea to become a world technological leader in a short time. As a result, one of the world’s best cadastre and cartography application systems was created. In just twenty years, South Korea has changed paper maps to digital ones, weekly updating data about road infrastructure and construction. This is one of the few countries that has full-fledged remote-sensing technologies, consisting of optical, radar, and UAV systems. It is no coincidence that the importance of geospatial information is emphasized by the mayor’s office of Seoul, the capital of the Republic of Korea, which rightfully occupies the sixth place in the ranking of Smart Cities of the World.
Racurs has been successfully cooperating with key Korean companies in the remote sensing and photogrammetric market, being a partner of SI Imaging Services, the exclusive distributor of KOMPSAT data. Our companies jointly export geospatial solutions based on Korean space images and Russian PHOTOMOD photogrammetric technologies. SI Imaging Services is a coorganizer of the conference.
We would be glad to have your participation! See you in Korea.
