The key topics of the issue are building of spatial data infrastructure of the Primorsky territory, “Demeter” system of Rosselkhoznadzor, operational marine monitoring, SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 satellites – a new step in the development of remote sensing industry, the “Arctic Walrus” Project, “Kosmosnimki-fires” service, the Internet contest “Living map”, Space reform in Russia.


– Technological and modern information potential often goes ahead of those systematic administrative processes destined to support their accurate adjustment and use. We hope this issue will shed light on some methods of development both in regional and subject aspects of using space imagery technologies in practice.
