Why should I become a IEEE GRSS memeber?


The GRS society is one of 38 societies that belong to the world’s largest professional society, and that is the IEEE. The vision of the GRS society is to be the leading society in the science, engineering, application and education of remote sensing. 





Which resources can I have access to ? 


You can have online access to our three premier journals: the IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing (TGRS), IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing (J-STARS) and the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters (GRSL). Our Society’s archival publications represent the forefront of remote sensing science, technology and applications. The Transactions are among the premier journals in IEEE as well as remote sensing journals in terms of citation index and impact factor. Members can access the latest issues either on-line or via hard copies in the mail.

What are the technical commitees of IEEE GRSS? 

You can participate in our five Technical Committees: Earth Science Informatics (ESI), Image Analysis and Data Fusion (IADF), Frequency Allocations in Remote Sensing (FARS), Instrumentation and Future Technologies (IFT), and International Spaceborne Imaging Spectroscopy (ISIS). The technical committees work together to review the state of art of technology in these research areas. The Technical Committees make important impacts on the future directions of remote sensing technologies. As a GRSS member, you can take a leadership role in this process.


What are the additional benefits?

You can attend IGARSS, our premier conference, at a reduced rate and also participate in the planning of IGARSS.You can utilize the resources provided by the Society, such as our quarterly Magazine, education programs, industrial relations and newsletter, on-line lectures and current state-of-the-art information of the IEEE GRSS (www.grss-ieee.org). The Society puts forth a lot of effort in remote sensing education initiatives, development and collection of educational resources for K-12, college/ graduate education as well as continuing education for professionals. Members can access these resources. We are strengthening our industry relations program. As a member, you can connect to our industrial partners via this initiative.Other benefits of IEEE GRSS members include subscription to IEEE Spectrum magazine, access to IEEE Xplore data base, IEEE e-mail alias, network with others in the local member community (chapters), career and employment resources, etc.
