IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society


The IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) is a professional and learned society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), active in the fields of geoscience and remote sensing.[1] IEEE GRSS deals with the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as they apply to the remote sensing of the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, as well as the processing, interpretation and dissemination of this information. The society also organizes annually the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS).[2]


IEEE GRSS has three peer-reviewed publications (all with impact factors):[1]

  • IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing (TGRS)
  • IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters (GRSL)
  • IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing (JSTARS)

It also publishes:

  • IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Magazine (GRSM)
  • IEEE GRSS Code Library (RSCL)
  • IEEE GRSS eNewsletter

It sponsors the Journal of Miniaturized Air and Space Systems (J-MASS), in consortium with IEEE Systems Council, IEEE Sensors Council, IEEE Instrumentation & Measurement Society, and IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society.
