RSRG's Urban Heat Island work to be exhibited at the Hong Kong Science Museum. The Grand Opening of the Exhibition has been scheduled at 4pm on 10th June.

Welcome to Remote Sensing Research Group!

Remote Sensing Research Group (RSRG) is a team of researchers at the Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The group focusses on the environmental applications of state-of-the-art remote sensing systems, as well as the development of techniques to enhance the usefulness of these systems.

The research projects undertaken by the group are in response to environmental problems within Hong Kong and the wider region, often in conjunction with government departments and private companies, but with potential for wider applications. Activities are supported by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, the Hong Kong Research Grants Council, consultancy projects and remote sensing and space organisations.
