IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium
July 24-28, 2000
The 2000 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) featured, as part of its program, important sessions on Earth System Science Educational Initiatives. These sessions focused on the K-12, college level, and professional development education community.

IGARSS 2000 was held July 24-28, 2000 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu Hawaii. The theme of IGARSS 2000, "Taking the Pulse of the Planet", reflects major strides that have taken place during the past few decades in the use of remote sensing for managing the global environment. IGARSS 2000 celebrated the twentieth anniversary of IGARSS and the special role that the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society has played during this development. The symposium included high quality invited and contributed presentations from authors working in all areas of Earth remote sensing from theory to applications.

In concert with it's theme, IGARSS 2000 highlighted education sessions on effective approaches to interdisciplinary Earth System Science and Remote Sensing Education in the following areas:

  • Courses and Curriculum Development
  • Instructional Materials
  • Educator Enhancement
  • Educational Technologies
  • Informal Education
