Determining the venue for the annual Racurs conference is not an easy task. The choice of one or another country 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, culturally and technologically this country is still very mysterious.
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 system was created. Just in 20 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 6th place in the ranking of Smart Cities of the World.
Racurs has been successfully cooperating with the key Korean companies in the remote sensing market, being a partner of SI Imaging Services — exclusive distributor of KOMPSAT data. Our companies jointly export geospatial solutions, based on Korean space imageries and Russian photogrammetric technologies PHOTOMOD.
SI Imaging Services is a co-organizer of the 19th International Scientific and Technical conference “FROM IMAGERY TO DIGITAL REALITY: ERS & Photogrammetry”.We will be glad to your participation! See you in Korea.

Scientific and Technical Conference “FROM IMAGERY TO DIGITAL REALITY: ERS & Photogrammetry”
