During the 2014 GeOnG conference in Chambery (France), Dr Stefan Lang, founder of the Z_GIS-MSF cooperation, joined an expert panel on „Satellite imagery – it’s for you!“ with an invited speech soliciting the use of GIS and satellite remote sensing for humanitarian operations support. His initial statement addressed recent achievements in satellite-based population assessment as well as groundwater exploration. The discussion was led by Human Rights Watch and engaged attendees from MSF, IFRC and other key actors in the humanitarian aid and logistics domain.
