Remote Sensing Industry 10 Year Forecast
  • In August 1999, ASPRS and NASA's Commercial
    Remote Sensing Program (CRSP) entered into a
    5-year Space Act Agreement (SAA), combining
    resources and expertise to
  • Baseline the Remote Sensing Industry (RSI)
  • Develop a 10-Year RSI market forecast
  • Provide improved information for decision
  • makers
  • Develop attendant processes

ASPRS Presentation follow

Students in RS/GIS Related Programs
  • Based on survey results, the average number of
    students involved in RS/GIS related programs at
    Respondents universities/colleges is about 140
  • Therefore, students involved in RS/GIS related
    programs at these universities are slightly less
    than 1 of the student body population (Avg.
    17,000)
  • This small of Student Population probably has a
    negative effect on funding/resource availability
  • A role for local industry? government?

13
Job Skills Needed versus Degrees Granted
  • Disconnect?
  • Will Certification Help Solve?
  • Local Business partnering
  • with Colleges/Universities?

14
Level of Education by Sector
  • Greater than 90 have a 4-year college degree or
    better.
  • Over 60 have a Masters degree or better.

Based on Phase II 731 Survey Responses Doctoral
Degree 136, Master's Degree or equivalent 312,
Bachelor's Degree or equivalent 227, Associates
Degree (2 year or equivalent) 26, Some College
24, High School 6, Other 0
15
Degrees by Discipline by Sector
Geography GIS Dominate
  • The generalists in remote sensing are degreed
    in Geography and GIS and are probably very mobile
    in the Remote Sensing Industry
  • Other disciplines are probably more
    transportable outside Remote Sensing Industry

16
Formal Coursework in Remote Sensing
  • Regardless of discipline, about 60 have had
    course work related to remote sensing
  • Academic 75
  • Commercial slightly less than 50
  • Government nearly 60 of the respondents
  • The current community of managers/users is both
    well educated and generally knowledgeable about
    Remote Sensing

Based on Phase II Survey Reponses
17
Remote Sensing Training Other Than Formal
Coursework
  • Most in the workforce get some formal coursework
    in Remote Sensing
  • 40 Certificate Programs 30 One Course 20
    Several Courses
  • Certificates are important in workforce
    development strategies

Based on Phase II 733 Survey Responses
Manager/Supervisor 188, Manager/User 402, User 143
18
Employer Sponsored Training by Sector
Employer Sponsored Training is infrequent
Based on Phase II 734 Survey Responses
Academic 142, Commercial 247, Government 345

The Project
25
Goals of the Project
To develop a highly skilled workforce educated
and equipped to lead the development of the
geospatial information technology industry by
creating a library of online courses reflecting a
consistent curriculum in remote sensing, GIS and
other related disciplines.
To develop a state of the art course delivery
system and course creation process that will be
self-sustaining.
To have 50 online courses in RS in five years
