About IEEE GRSS Wuhan Chapter

The Wuhan Chapter and Wuhan Student Chapter of the IEEE GRSS were established in 2014 and 2016, based on the remote sensing group (RS group), the state key laboratory of information engineering in surveying, mapping, and remote sensing (LIESMARS), Wuhan University, to serve GRSS members and the general public interested in geoscience and remote sensing in Wuhan and neighboring regions. This chapter is attracting new members at all levels in a variety of sectors, including education universities and research institutions, technical colleges, and electrical and electronics industries. The specific goals of this chapter are participating in conferences, promoting IEEE GRSS activities and looking for the sources of partnerships, sponsorships, and corporations to support the development of IEEE GRSS.

Up to now, this chapter is composed of members not only belonging to internationally renowned departments within the Wuhan University (e.g., the LIESMARS, the collaborative innovation center of geospatial technology, school of remote sensing and information engineering, school of geodesy and geomatics, school of resource and environmental sciences, school of computer, and school of electronic information), but also in other well-known universities in the city of Wuhan (e.g., Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China University of Geosciences, Huazhong Agricultural University, Central China Normal University, and Hubei University).
