The theme of the 2017 ENVI Analytics Symposium (EAS) is “Analytical Solutions in a Data-Rich World.” With the staggering volume of commercial and open-source data that is becoming available, organizations will need to quickly transition to new business and service models to be successful. Agility, technology, and innovation will separate the winners from the losers. Register to attend the 2017 EAS to keep your finger on the pulse of this fast-growing and dynamic market of commercial geospatial Big Data analytics.

Topics will include:
  • The Future of Earth Observation
  • The LiDAR Revolution
  • Adding the Temporal Dimension to Geospatial Analytics
  • Geospatial Modeling – Creating the “Digital Twin*”
  • Industry Solutions of Geospatial Analytics (…Precision Ag, Utilities, Maritime, Defense and Security)
  • Buying and Selling Geospatial Analytics

*A digital twin is a virtual model of a process, product or service. This pairing of the virtual and physical worlds allows analysis of data and monitoring of systems to head off problems before they even occur, prevent downtime, develop new opportunities and even plan for the future by using simulations.

EAS DAY 1 | Morning Workshops


Improving Outcomes with UAV and Airborne Data

Over the years, Harris Geospatial has worked with many customers that use data collected on UAV and airborne platforms. This session will dive into lessons we’ve learned with regard to:

  • Collection methodologies
  • Getting the right data for your project
  • Correcting your data—radiometrically, atmospherically, and geometrically
  • Working with data from these modalities over time

Applied Machine Learning
Recently, “Machine Learning” has been the focus of many conversations in the remote sensing community. However, Machine Learning has had varying degrees of quality, testing, and ultimately results. Harris has developed a Machine Learning solution that is mature, deployable, and capable of scaling for large projects across modalities including multispectral, hyperspectral, and LiDAR. In this workshop, high-level principals of Machine Learning will be discussed and Machine Learning will be shown to be a leap over traditional pixel-based analytics for some features and data. Several use cases will be presented and there will be discussions about how you can take advantage of this technology.

Deploying to Partner Platforms
Harris is proud to partner with many of the leading data and platform providers who are important contributors to our industry as a whole. These partnerships enable us to deploy analytics in close proximity to the data, and expose them to user bases across several different industries. In this workshop, Harris will present several deployments of enterprise geospatial analytics on various partner platforms. This will be an engaging session where attendees will gain technical insight into how these analytics are deployed with hands-on opportunities to interact with the platforms.

EAS DAY 2 | Afternoon Workshops


Vegetation Analysis: Why it’s Hard and What You Can Do

Remote sensing of vegetation has been around for as long as remote sensing, but many are still confounded on how to observe vegetation condition, species, and change. This workshop will give a background on vegetation remote sensing, how to improve outcomes for observation, and modalities for best observing vegetation phenomenology. The new ENVI Crop Science product will be presented and there will be time for Q&A with vegetation experts from Harris.

Data Modalities, Sources, and Achieving the Best Results
Today, there is more data than ever before, and it is critical to derive meaningful and actionable information from this data. In this workshop, Harris will discuss recent data modalities that are now available such as small sats, weather sensors, and emerging commercial platforms. Some of these data are already available in cloud storage and delivery environments. We’ll show you how to ingest, work very large datasets efficiently, and describe potential best applications for the different sensors. This workshop will also discuss potential applications and delivery of machine learning.

Real-time Problem Solving for the Enterprise and Desktop
Bring your problem solving skills and geospatial expertise to this workshop for some hands-on ENVI analytics fun. Come ready to get creative and solve a real geospatial remote sensing problem, complete with access to data and ENVI tasks and workflows. Attendees should be somewhat familiar with remote sensing phenomenology and/or optical image analytics. Advanced users will have access to all the tools needed to solve these problems.The sky’s the limit.
