  • The Joint Agency Commercial Imagery Evaluation (JACIE) Team Announces its 2014 Workshop to be Held in Conjunction with the ASPRS 2014 Annual Conference
    held Wednesday through Friday beginning on March 26 as a separate track at the ASPRS meeting The program planning for JACIE and ASPRS will integrate some key speakers and highlights into a few ASPRS special and or hot topics sessions In addition ASPRS will provide attendees to the JACIE Workshop with the opportunity to register for a combined JACIE ASPRS experience that will allow JACIE attendees to visit the ASPRS Conference Exhibit Hall as well as ASPRS General and Technical Sessions as time permits during the week of the JACIE Workshop Holding the JACIE Workshop in conjunction with the ASPRS Conference is a win win for ASPRS and JACIE both technically and programmatically the ability to allow Government and industry technical experts a common forum to discuss how to enhance the quality of remote sensing systems and data to better support societal need applications is invaluable said JACIE spokesman Greg Stensaas U S Geological Survey This is a great opportunity to bring together the large government agencies with private industry and end users of the remote sensing data said ASPRS President Elect Dr Stewart Walker Our exhibitors will be pleased to see the inclusion of the JACIE Workshop with the ASPRS Conference The National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency NGA National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration NOAA the United States Department of Agriculture USDA and the United States Geological Survey USGS and their associates and partners are directly responsible for establishing and leading a unique interagency team of scientists and engineers who work together to evaluate and enhance the quality of remote sensing data for commercial and government use This team is called the Joint Agency Commercial Imagery Evaluation JACIE team This team works together to define prioritize assign and assess civil and commercial image quality

  • ASPRS Awards Senator Jack Reed with George E. Brown, Jr. Congressional Honor Award
    FEMA flood mapping reform bill It included provisions such as acquiring current and accurate elevation data using state of the art mapping technologies lidar and services mapping by watershed instead of political boundary and re establishing the Technical Mapping Advisory Council TMAC Reed s reforms were included in the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA bill enacted into law in 2012 P L 112 141 included reauthorizing the Highway and FEMA Flood programs into the MAP 21 Act The bill also included provisions led by Reed to require National Flood Insurance Program rate maps to use the most accurate topography and elevation data available This bill is unprecedented and is a model for geospatial coordination as well as an innovative way of funding inter agency and intergovernmental geospatial requirements The elevation provisions effectively provide a specific Congressional authorization for the 3D Elevation Program being launched by the U S Geological Survey This is significant because neither the NSDI The National Map nor IFTN were ever specifically authorized by Congress As a result they either floundered or never got adequate funding Most importantly Section 100220 develops a funding strategy to leverage and coordinate budgets and expenditures and to maintain or establish joint funding and other agreement mechanisms with other Federal agencies and units of State and local government to share in the collection and utilization of geospatial data among all governmental users and specifically mentions OMB FEMA USGS NOAA USACE Section 100121 includes a NAPA study on how FEMA can improve interagency and intergovernmental coordination on flood mapping including a funding strategy to leverage and coordinate budgets and expenditures and establish joint funding mechanisms with other Federal agencies and units of State and local government to share the collection and utilization of data among all governmental users The Award was created in
