In a different kind, last Friday I had the opportunity to do a flight in ultralight. This flight was part of the Leman-Baikal project that use hyperspectral remote sensing. The idea is to investigate the possibilities that exist to use the dataset for mapping terrestrial surfaces…

Finally, from tomorrow I’ll be in Paris for the SIG 2014 conference, as announced previously. My presentation on GIS in planetary exploration is ready!
