On November 30th, 2023, delegates from China's National Remote Sensing Center, led by Director Zhao Jing, visited the Department of Geography at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) for an insightful round table discussion. Chaired by Professor Shunlin Liang, the event brought together experts from HKU's Department of Geography, School of Biological Sciences, Division of Landscape Architecture, and Geospatial Data Science Strategic theme teams. The discussion aimed to strengthen collaboration, talent development, and knowledge exchange in remote sensing between the two institutions. The conversation focused on the development of advanced quantitative remote sensing products and the application of remote sensing technologies in urban, ecology, agriculture, and climate change. Participants shared their latest research findings and explored how remote sensing can address complex challenges in these areas.
This visit not only fostered a stronger relationship between National Remote Sensing Center of China and HKU's Department of Geography, but also laid the foundation for future collaborations and joint research projects. Leveraging the expertise and resources of both institutions, remote sensing technology and its applications are expected to contribute significantly to understanding and managing environmental and societal issues.
