The Kansas State University student chapter of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, or ASPRS, will meet at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 6, in 164H Seaton Hall.

Following a general membership meeting, a research presentation will be made by Deon van der Merwe, associate professor of diagnostic medicine and pathobiology in the College of Veterinary Medicine. Van der Merwe will discuss his work involving low altitude remote sensing applications in agriculture.

The society was founded in 1934 and is a scientific association serving thousands of professional members around the world. Its mission is to advance knowledge and improve understanding of mapping sciences to promote the responsible application of photogrammetry, remote sensing, GIS, and supporting technologies.
