The 26th General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, from the 22nd of June to the 2nd of July 2015.
The International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) is the international organisation dedicated to advancing, promoting, and communicating knowledge of the Earth system, its space environment, and the dynamical processes causing change. Its General Assembly is held every four years.
The workshop addresses European urbanization typologies and global urbanization trends and challenges from the point of view of reference data available, policy requirements, spatial planning recommendations and case studies.
The event aims to bring together planners from international and national practice, from academia and policy, to discuss how new mapping tools can inform the design of spatial planning, and promote best practice, bridging the urban/rural spectrum.
This webinar presents an innovative tool developed by the JRC to map human settlements using earth observation data: the Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL).
The aim of this year’s meeting is to review the first year of the Global Flood Partnership and to further structure the many ongoing work and initiatives in a coordinated manner to develop prototype products and services useful for national hydro-meteorological services and international emergency response agencies.
