IEEE New Zealand North Section


Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society Joint Section Chapter

Welcome to IEEE NZ Joint Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society Chapter

IEEE NZ Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) is a joint chapter of NZ North, South, and Central sections.  Please refer to for more info on GRSS. The NZ Joint GRSS Chapter was established August 2022. Please consider joining us!  Our goals are to build the NZ community in GRSS and promote awareness of various research and development activities in the educational, research and commercial sectors in New Zealand and foster connections in the R10 region. Please check back for updates but to start our Chapter has these initial activities:

  1. Membership Development. The IEEE joint NZ North, South, and Central GRSS Committee would like to encourage members to apply for promotion to Senior Member. Please have a look at the IEEE Senior Member Program for eligibility. If you know of a member who should be considered for promotion to Senior or require any assistance, please contact a committee member.
  2. The Instrumentation and Future Technologies Technical Committee Summer School will be hosted at the University of Auckland Jan 30-Feb 3, 2023. Please see for further information and to apply.  (Applications close Dec 9.)   The objective of the first Summer School on Instrumentation and Future Technologies for Remote Sensing (IFT-R3S) is to promote future research in remote sensing, connect Master students, junior Ph.D. students, recent graduates, and young professionals, with research groups linked to the IFT Technical Committee, and to highlight the educational activities of the GRSS. The Summer School will have a focus on remote-sensing instrumentation, particularly for Earth science with aspirations to:
  1. 1) develop and foster domestic expertise and capacity in this sector
  1. 2) heighten international visibility of New Zealand in the space Earth observing sector.
  2. Hosted at the University of Auckland, the planned workshop will be organized by the IEEE Instrumentation and Future Technologies Technical Committee (IFT). Using the success of the pilot summer school held in Spain in 2019 as a template, the 2023 New Zealand Summer school will enlist foremost experts to teach the curriculum with a topic list including sensor and mission design, theory and state-of-the-art in radar including sounding, altimetry, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), bistatic radar and signals of opportunity (SoOp).
