The Canadian Remote Sensing Society (CRSS) is a fully independent, not-for-profit professional society that provides a focal point for leadership and excellence to advance the remote sensing field.
The CRSS was formed as an independent Society at the second Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing held April 1974 in Guelph, Ontario. Dr. Morley was the first President of CRSS. In 1975, CRSS joined with the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI) as a constituent society, a partnership that continued until November 2012, when CRSS separated from CASI. CRSS has now returned to its original status and is incorporated as a fully independent, not-for-profit professional society.
