[Tainan, Taiwan, April 22, 2015]
The 2015 International Symposium on Remote Sensing (ISRS) kicked off at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan, today, with more than 300 experts and scholars exchanging results and ideas.

Prof. San-Cheng Chang, Vice Premier of Executive Yuan of Taiwan, Prof. Huey-Jen Jenny Su, President of NCKU, Prof. Peter Tian-Yuan Shih, President of Chinese Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Prof. Hiroaki Kuze, President of Remote Sensing Society of Japan, Dr. Kwang-Eun Kim, President of Korean Society of Remote Sensing, and Prof. Hajime Fukushima, Co-Chair of the Standing Committee of Environmental Monitoring from Space of East Asia (EMSEA), attended the opening ceremony to give their remarks.

“This is the first time ISRS is held in Taiwan,” according to Prof. San-Cheng Chang, Vice Premier of Executive Yuan of Taiwan.

He said in his opening remarks, “Surveying and remote sensing technology has changed a lot over the last 30 years, and becomes more automatic, intelligent and more high-tech. I still remember the days I carry the surveying equipment on my back, and roaming the campus doing the survey.”

“But now in the campus you cannot see civil engineering students doing the survey anymore. It’s a pity but it also show how the technology evolved over the years.
Now the technology has become so advanced, and I think it’s fair to say that remote sensing is one of the high-tech we used today,” Chang added.
