Remote sensing for resources development and environmental management
Damen, M. C. J.

We are very greatful that the industry has ac
cepted our invitation to exhibit their most recent
instruments during this Symposium.
I expect, that during this week’s discussions we
will have to face the need for compromise between
precision and productivity, for instance in the
manufacturing of townmaps in developing countries
and in the acquisition and monitoring of environmen
tal data. In this respect it is a great comfort that
Professor Konecny and Dr. Tbrlegard honour us with
their presence, as well as other ISPRS members who
are familiar with the work that is going on in the
other six ISPRS Commissions.
The key-note address of Professor Konecny today will
provide a reference, essential to our further dis
Finally, I should like to challenge you all to
direct your discussions primarily towards techniques
and applications of remote sensing which can con
tribute to operational solutions in the foreseeable
future for some of the development problems I have
mentioned. We shall review the results of your
discussions during our closing session.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
As I told you, I am grateful for your presence, I
am also grateful in advance for your contributions
in presentations and in the discussions.
I wish you all a very enjoyable week.
Thank you for your attention.
