WADI visits Japan

IGARSS 2019 in Yokohama, Japan

IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and the IGARSS 2019 Organizing Committee, invited scientific community to Yokohama, Japan for IGARSS 2019 that held from Sunday July 28th through Friday August 2nd, 2019 at Convention Center "PACIFICO Yokohama". The opening Ceromony of IGARSS Conference was also honoured by the presence of the Emperor and Empress of Japan.

The 39th annual IGARSS symposium was the excellent tradition of gathering world-class scientists, engineers and educators engaged in the fields of geoscience and remote sensing. IGARSS is recognized today as a premier event in remote sensing and provides an ideal forum for obtaining up-to-date information about the latest developments, exchanging ideas, identifying future trends in your research area and making contacts with the international remote sensing community.

The paper “Leak detection in water transmission systems by multispectral remote sensing with airplane and UAV” focuses on the aerial campaigns carried out in 2018 over water transportation mains in the French region of Provence. It was presented by Christian Chatelard from ONERA on behalf of WADI consortium on July 31st within a session dedicated to soil moisture measurement applications.


This session was the opportunity to promote WADI's future reliable water leak detection service with airborne and drone platforms. It was very successful since it was intended to meet and dialogue directly with stakeholders and to interest them in WADI's innovative approach for leak detection. Furthermore, this conference enabled the project to liaise with other colleagues in the remote sensing domain and to make initial contact with scientists from many countries all over the world.
