Ladies of Landsat – Summary of activity – June 2022
Building a more diverse, inclusive, open and welcoming geospatial industry is all about giving a voice to a more diverse group of geospatial experts and it’s a pleasure to showcase Ladies of Landsat and the all the awesome work they do!
Overview Ladies of Landsat:
Ladies of Landsat is a supportive and intersectional organization for underrepresented remote sensing scientists. It was founded in 2018 by Dr. Kate Fickas and joined soon after by co-director Dr. Morgan Crowley and lead-organizers Dr. Flávia de Souza Mendes and Dr. Meghan Halabisky. Ladies of Landsat aim to lift up, retain and attract underrepresented scientists to Earth observation sciences through our many outreach activities and networking events!

June 6 – Morgan Crowley moderated and co-organized “Women in Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry and Spatial Information Science” forum at the ISPRS World Congress 2022 with Sheryl Rose Reyes of ISPRS SC and Marguerite Madden of ISPRS. Included an in-person panel discussion and a virtual lightning talk series that included one from Kate Fickas for Ladies of Landsat.
Deeply grateful and still in awe of our presenters in yesterday’s forum 🙌🏼 @LadiesOfLandsat @WomenCopernicus @geospatialwomen @geoladiesph @africwomeningis @WiGISKe @SistersofSAR @shemapsau @GRSS_IDEA

🌞#SAR_Fact Monday! ⁉️DYK a vector is an ordered list of numbers either in one row or column & a
“Wave vector” is the simplest way to describe wave polarization mathematically! #TheMoreYouKnow #EOChat pic.twitter.com/tXBRt0lnAE

🌞#SAR_Fact Monday! ⁉️DYK span is a quantity giving the total power (intensity) received by the channels of a radar system? In the #RADARSAT2 span image from Spring 2016 Manitoba 🇨🇦,we have low span in bare agricultural fields & high span in mixed forest & shrubs area. #EOChat pic.twitter.com/EV0pbaAmnB

🌞#SARFact day!! #DYK⁉️#SAR systems can have different polarisation configurations? #Singlepol transmits & receives a single polarisation, mostly the same direction, resulting in a HH or VV imager (first designation is the transmit & the second is receive direction) /1 #EOfact
