The conference theme is “Earth Observation – Continuous Monitoring of Our Changing Planet: From Sensors to Decisions”. The symposium will focus on both science and operational applications, emerging challenges and opportunities in working with Earth observations, and the role of partnerships in addressing scientific research, technical advancements and societal solutions.

Pecora 21 is the latest in a series of Symposia named after William T. Pecora, the USGS Director who helped initiate the Landsat program in the 1960s. Established by the USGS and NASA in the 1970's, the Pecora meetings serve as a forum to foster the exchange of scientific information and results derived from applications of Earth observing data to a broad range of land-based resources, and also discuss ideas, policies, and strategies concerning land remote sensing.
