Impact Factors Reflect the Success of ISPRS Journals

It is my pleasure to inform you of two great achievements within ISPRS publications.

The huge efforts of the ISPRS Editors-in-Chief, the associate editors, many reviewers, and the authors of papers published in the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing were so successful that the journal has now reached an Impact Factor of 6.387, jumping from 4.18 last year, and is now the no. 1 under Remote Sensing journals.

On behalf of Council, please let me to express my thanks to all who have helped achieve this excellent result. The Journal has reached an outstanding position among remote sensing journals.
The Journal is published by Elsevier. More information can be found at:

I would also like to thank the Editor-in-Chief, associate editors, reviewers and authors of the ISPRS Journal of Geo-Information.
The Impact Factor of the Journal has doubled, now reaching 1.502 (2016).
The Journal was founded in 2012 and is published by MDPI. http://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijgi

Paulo Cesar Teixeira Trino

ISPRS mourns loss of Paulo Cesar Teixeira Trino, President of Brazilian Ordinary Member
by Antonio Luiz Teixeira de Freitas

On 13 May 2017, the Cartographic Community lost one of its most outstanding icons, with the passing of Cartography Specialist Engineer Paulo Cesar Teixeira Trino.

With his remarkable personality and immense obstinacy, he dedicated much of his professional life to the cause of Cartography.

His leadership has been effective since the beginning of his career, when he simultaneously assumed the presidency of three important institutions of the cartographic activity, the Brazilian Society of Cartography - SBC, the Brazilian National Association of Aerial Survey Companies - ANEA and the Brazilian Association of Cartographers - ABEC. He returned to the presidency of these institutions on several occasions, always with dedication and willingness equal to his first mandates. Until  his death, he exercised cumulatively the presidencies of SBC and ANEA.

He has also held, for many years, as a representative of ANEA, the position of Board Member at the Brazilian National Cartography Commission - CONCAR.

A profound connoisseur of Universal History, where he improved his ability to formulate strategies, always in favour of Cartography, which, in addition to being aware of its historical details, has continually struggled for its development both in the Brazilian community and in the international community.

Paulo Cesar leaves our community in mourning, in which he made great and numerous friends and admirers.

Wilfried Hartmann

Wilfried Hartmann, 1988 - 2017

We have the sad duty to inform the ISPRS community that Wilfried passed away on the 27th May, in a tragic accident during a hiking trip.

Wilfried studied geodesy and geoinformatics at Leibniz University Hannover, and received a BSc. degree in 2009. He then joint ETH Zurich, finished a MSc degree and became a PhD student and research assistant under the supervision of Konrad Schindler.
From 2012-2016 he was Secretary of ISPRS Technical Commission III "Photogrammetric Computer Vision". He was about to defend his dissertation this summer.

We feel deeply shocked about Wilfried's passing at such a young age. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
