The First International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics (Agro-Geoinformatics 2012)
August 2 - 4, 2012, Shanghai, China

Agro-geoinformation, the agricultural-related geo-information, is the key information in the agricultural decision making and policy formulation process. The Agro-Geoinformatics, a branch of geoinformatics, is the science and technology about for handling digital agro-geoinformation, such as collecting (including field visits and remote sensing), processing, storing, archiving, preservation, retrieving, transmitting, accessing, visualization, analyzing, synthesizing, presenting, and disseminating agro-geoinformation. Recent advances in geoinformatics have created new opportunities and challenges in applying agro-geoinformatics to agriculture monitoring and assessment. The International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics is an ideal venue for professionals and students to exchange ideas, research results, professional experiences, to obtain the information about the latest developments and future vision in the fields of geoinformation science, remote sensing, and their applications in agriculture. The First International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics (Agro-Geoinformatics 2012), to be hosted by Shanghai Jiao Tong University and George Mason University (GMU), will be held in Shanghai, China on August 2-4, 2012. The conference will include plenary, oral, and poster sessions. The topics of the conference include, but are not limited to:
  1. Agricultural ecosystem monitoring, assessment, conservation, and service sustainability
