RSPC National committee appoints a new chair

Congratulations to Dr Jagannath Aryal who was recently elected as National Chair of SSSI's Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Commission (RSPC).

Jagannath is a proud survey engineer who specialises in remote sensing and spatial information with a focus on intelligent approaches. He has worked in Europe, Nepal and New Zealand and is currently a Senior Lecturer at University of Melbourne. Jagannath brings a wealth of experience and is qualified to expertly lead our RSPC.

We would like to acknowledge and thank retiring RSPC Chair A/Prof Petra Helmholz for her leadership and commitment towards growing our remote sensing and photogrammetry member base over the past four year. Petra has also been instrumental in championing numerous webinar series which showcased remote sensing and photogrammetry at work. Petra, we appreciate your service and look forward to your ongoing support of the RSPC and SSSI. Thank you.
