FREE to members.
Fee for non-members $30+HST.


Stormwater presents numerous challenges and risks for your community. What if you could have the actual precise measure of impervious surfaces for each property of your jurisdiction? What if you could count on a transparent and visual source to communicate with your citizens about their run-off contribution?  And, what if you could count with updated submeter topography and a visual map of your assets?

At the completion of this one-hour OJT session, participants will be able to demonstrate the following:

  •  Practical knowledge about latest satellite and aerial imagery advances
  • How to select the right satellite or aerial imagery based on needs and image characteristics
  • Which are the critical image characteristics to consider
  •  How impervious surfaces can be identified, measured and classified using adequate remote sensing imagery
  • How submeter topography of your territory can be obtained through imagery to understand run-off flows
  •  How infrastructure assets can be inventoried and located using precise imagery
  • How remote sensing imagery can be used to support disaster response in flood events
