From healthcare to policing to climate change, this panel will explore the role of geospatial surveillance technology in the past, present and into the future as we chart a path toward tech utilization for the benefit of all humans. Potential discussion topics will include a contextualized history of satellite image capture, image analysis, the ethics of extractive technology, and what the future holds for fields like geography, climate science, public health, and software.

All members of the Dartmouth community are welcome.
