Dear Mr. Tarikhi

Congratulations on your new article. by the way how are you. I miss you very much. I am working part time at International Organization of migration a branch of UN.

Aziz is the same. Ariyan in 2 years old and sheytoon.  tell me about yourself

[Ms. Jaleh Hatam is my former colleague when I was working in the Iranian Remote Sensing Center. Early in November 2003 she fired from her job unfairly because of the existence of deep official corruption in the Iranian Remote Sensing Center. She has been the closest and sincere colleague to me in course of my official work in the Iranian Remote Sensing Center and then the Iranian Space Agency since 1992. She worked as the officer in the Office for International Cooperation. Her presence made considerable motivation in the activity of the Office. She received the order of dismissal from the incompetent and poor quality chairman of the date of the Iranian Remote Sensing Center a week before being fired. My very efforts to keep her at work as a qualified officer for the scientific and technical international cooperation was failed unfortunately; the chairman himself was dismissed two months later.]

Subject :  IRS data


Dear my friend Parviz Tarikhi,

How are you and your family? I am receiving information about your works. I have founded in 2006 may, Private company INTEGRIS. Main specialization area is the projects directed to Geographical Information, Remote Sensing, and implementation of Digital Photogrammetry technologies, preparation of digital map data, creation of corporative Geographical Information Systems, learning of natural and anthropogenic resources of practical and remote sensing data and implementation of this data in preparation of orthophoto and cadastre mapping via Digital Photogrammetry technologies.

We have a project regarding Creation of  Landuse/Landcover Map of all Azerbaijan territory using medium resolution multi spectral Satellite Imagery such as IRS or SPOT 10color last years,(2003-2007).  But SPOT is not covered all Azerbaijan territory that is why we made our request for you about IRS. Is that possible to get Imagery from your agency?  Or how can you help us about it? What do you think about if we ask Mr.Hasan Shafti about this problem? If you would give us any information about this problem we will appreciate you.

Best regards,

Jamal I. Ismayilov

Dear Dr Tarikhi,

Thank you for the above e-mail and it is great to hear from you again! I’ve managed to read your article published in ASM, but cant open/read the JPGs attachments somehow. You may generate PDF rather than image format files. I am planning for a visit to Tehran later in the year and I may be able to visit your ISA again (like in 2006 if you recall when gave a seminar).

Speak to you again and let’s keep in touch.

Kind regards
