Overview

The Rutgers University Center for Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis (CRSSA) and the New Jersey Office of Information Technology hosted a one day workshop on May 14, 2004 at the Rutgers University EcoComplex in Bordentown, New Jersey. Our objective was to introduce public sector personnel to remote sensing as a technology and inform them of the different types of remote sensing technologies, readily available imagery sources/types and related applications. The overall goal of the workshop was to promote an understanding of the practical government applications of remote sensing technology within the larger public sector geospatial community in the state of New Jersey. Registration was limited to geospatial practicioners and managers in state, county, municipal, tribal, and regional governments and non-profit organizations such as environmental commissions, watershed associations and greenway/land trusts.
