The university of Baghdad discusses the remote sensing and its economic effects on individual and society

The department of physics at the college of sciences for women at Baghdad university held its scientific symposium entitled ” the remote sensing and its economic effects on individual and society ” aiming at enabling the bodies responsible for planning in the state to manage its natural resources and using them effectively. The symposium  included several lectures in which Dr. Sabah Nuri Mizhir, the instructor at the college participated with a lecture entitled “The economic feasibility of remote sensing” and Dr. Aliaa Hussein Ali also participated with a lecture titled “the use of remote sensing technologies and software applications in crisis management”. As well as a lecture by the assistant instructor Leith Aziz Jawad from the remote sensing unit in the college of sciences at the university of Baghdad titled ” the extraction of morphometric properties by using remote sensing technologies and geographic information systems” and the engineer Mr. Fouad Kazem Mashi from the same unit participated with a lecture entitled “the analysis of organized crimes by using remote sensing technologies and software applications in Baghdad”. The symposium arrived at several recommendations such as the necessity of keeping up with the remote sensing technologies and benefiting from what is suitable for the environment in accordance with the national and global orientations for using outer space for peaceful purpose, increasing the interest in sciences and the technologies of remote sensing, introducing them in school and university curricula in order to transfer these sciences to the youth and rehabilitating national work teams, using these technologies in detecting underground resources, also investing and managing them for the benefit of human development. It was also recommended to establish a national center for remote sensing at the university of Baghdad linked with the unit of remote sensing, the environmental laboratory in the college of sciences, the geological survey body at the ministry of industry and minerals, the remote sensing unit at the ministry of science and technology for the purpose of unifying efforts and establishing an integrated geographical information base and linking it with a national network which the governmental and private sectors can benefit from quickly, in addition to finding a way for cooperating with the ministries of oil, water resources and the body of research and industrial development at the ministry of industry and minerals.
