Topic: Integrating Spatial and Statistical Data at the U.S. Census Bureau
        Abstract:

The U.S. Census Bureau maintains the Master Address File/Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing System (MAF/TIGER System), the geographic and cartographic infrastructure used to support the decennial census and on-going surveys. The MAF/TIGER System integrates a national list of living quarters with a spatial database to allow for the accurate collection, tabulation, and dissemination of statistical data. This data determines the apportionment of the U.S. House of Representatives, affects the allocation of over 400 billion dollars of federal funds per year to local communities, and impacts policy and decision making at all levels of government.

While the mission of the Census Bureau has not changed from one decade to the next, the technology used to support census operations has changed drastically. This presentation will showcase the geographic processes and systems used to conduct the 2010 Census, various technologies used to display and disseminate spatial and statistical data, and plans for incorporating the use of new technology in preparation for the future.

Topic: Digital Cultural Landscape: past, present and future
        Abstract:
        A cultural landscape is the visual outcome of humans living in a particular area, the product of a continuous interaction between nature and human activity. It includes historical places, fields, buildings, and other cultural markers, together with the natural environment itself; by the impact of human habitation it has got cultural value as well.

 As history, the using of digital tools in the field of cultural landscape can be dated back to the early of 1970s, which associated with the proposition for a complete digitization of the surveying process and data mapping. At present, digital technology has largely applied into cultural landscape information system frameworks through the integrating of hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, integrating, and visualizing all forms of geographically referenced information. Moreover, these digital information is available to create elevation and 3D models, and share of data through network databases, or known as web-base.

 With the aids of digital tools, it helps us to make better decision in cultural landscape planning, such as cultural site selection, cultural route/corridor selection, cultural conservation, etc. In the field of cultural landscape, the role of citizens is very important to reach effective cultural resources preservation. Organizations are now able to supply the public with decision-making environments based around GIS across the Internet, enhancing the two-way flow of information between the public and those governing them, developing communities interested in particular problems and aiding the formation of a democratic consensus in problem areas. In the future, the vision of digital cultural landscape should be strengthened through improving the requirements it implied, such as access to computer processing cycles, broadband internet, interoperability of systems, and above all data organization, storage, and retrieval. The ongoing care and interpretation of cultural landscape through digital tools can improve our quality of life and deepens a sense of place and identity for future generations.

 Lastly, the recent idea of Digital Earth has a brilliant prospect in the realm of cultural landscape because of its various benefits, which included cost savings and increased efficiency in implementation, communication and recordkeeping. Digital Earth could become a platform of cultural landscape. More integration of Digital Earth concept with cultural landscape is imperative in order to create better and comprehensive environment for our Earth and culture.

Topic: "Mapping Social Media and Diffusion of Innovations on Digital Earth:
                     Revealing the Invisible World”
        Abstract:

By using smart phones, mobile devices, and the Internet, social media and weblogs allow people to communicate, express, and coordinate their activities dynamically and geospatially, and to a significant degree, to accomplish these social functions in near real time. The impacts of these tools were so vividly demonstrated in the most recent anti-government protests in the Middle East (the Arab Spring), Occupy Wall Streets, and the London riots. In order to cope with these new trends, the next generation of Digital Earth should focus more on the analysis of social networks and social media (such as Twitter, Facebook, and on-line forums), and their impacts on our society.

Cyberspace (the invisible world), a powerful platform for collective thinking and idea exchange, provides valuable intelligence to help scientists monitoring social processes and events ranging in diversity from the spread of infectious diseases, to radical social movements, to the structure of terrorist networks. Mapping the information diffusion and cluster patterns in response to various social movements, events, and epidemics can facilitate the study of innovation diffusion. The diffusion of innovations is a dynamic process whereby new concepts, ideas, and technologies spread through our society on the Digital Earth and social networks.

This presentation will introduce a new research method, called the Spatial Web Automatic Reasoning and Mapping System (SWARMS) (http://mappingideas.sdsu.edu). SWARM is designed to track spatial patterns of publically-accessible web pages and social media (Twitter) based upon searching predefined clusters of keywords determined by domain experts. Web pages and tweets associated with the same keywords were converted into visualization maps using GIS functions. Given the extent to which the human population is “plugged into” the online world, this new approach may illustrate a new research direction for scientists to study human thoughts, behaviors, disease outbreaks, global web contents, and new communication theories.

Topic: "Topic: FORMOSAT-5 : Taiwan’s Next-Generation Earth Observation Satellite
                     福爾摩沙衛星五號 – 台灣新一代地球觀測衛星
        Abstract:

In this speech, FORMOSAT-5, developed by National Space Organization (NSPO) in Taiwan, is presented in terms of its program goals, implementation strategy, mission architecture, system performance, and developing status. FORMOSAT-5, a follow-on earth observation mission of FORMOSAT-2, is expected to provide continuous imagery to the global user’s community of FORMOSAT-2. Meanwhile, NSPO intends to demonstrate the indigenous space technology by synergizing the domestic competences in Taiwan via execution of FORMOSAT-5 program. The strategy and its implementation plans for FORMOSAT-5’s program approach will be addressed as well.

FORMOSAT-5 will carry an optical Remote Sensing Instrument (RSI) with ground resolutions of 2-meter in panchromatic band and 4-meter in multi-spectrum bands and with functionality and performance similar to FORMOSAT-2. Due to the tremendous usages of FORMOSAT-2’s daily revisit capability, FORMOSAT-5 is designed to operate in a sun-synchronous orbit with revisit cycle of 2-day. A feature of agility, so-called asymmetric imaging, is being implemented in FORMOSAT-5 that allows tasking images along the geographical coast or longitudinal direction to enhance the imaging time resolution for a designated area. FORMOSAT-5 will be also equipped with CMOS-type Image Sensor (CIS) to enhance Taiwan’s industrial strengths in space applications. It is anticipated that FORMOSAT-5 will become one of the pioneers that utilizes CIS on-board a high-resolution earth observation satellite. Several domestically made key components of FORMOSAT-5, such as the Telescope, CMOS Image Sensor, On-Board Computer, and Power Control and Distribution Unit (PCDU), etc., will be elaborated as well. FORMOSAT-5 is currently close to the completion of the critical design phase and marching into the satellite AIT phase. The launch date of FORMOSAT-5 is targeted in the Q1 of 2015.
