Top News - ISPRS proceedings submitted to EI

This is to inform all interested author that the ISPRS Archives and Annals have recently been submitted for indexing at the Engineering Compendex, also called Engineering Index or EI.

EI ( http://www.engineeringvillage.com/) is a major index and leading engineering information discovery platform and an index of major importance for many scientific authors.

ISPRS hopes to be successful and have their proceedings publications included in the EI as soon as possible. Typically, the evaluation of the submission takes several months.

New ISPRS Scientific Vision and Research Agenda Paper Published

With the increased availability of very high-resolution satellite imagery, terrain based imaging and participatory sensing, inexpensive platforms, and advanced information and communication technologies, the application of imagery is now ubiquitous, playing an important role in many aspects of life and work today. Frequent questions that are frequently asked by academia, industry, users, and young students include: what are the major scientific and technical challenges we are facing? What are the state-of-the art in our disciplines? What are the key issues to be addressed in the future? In an attempt to address such questions, ISPRS has prepared a collective scientific vision and research agenda for the Society in the run-up to the 2016 Prague Congress. It has recently been published on-line in the International Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing as an original article with the title ‘Information from imagery: ISPRS scientific vision and research agenda’.

New ISPRS WG III/4 "3D scene analysis" benchmark datasets

ISPRS working group III/4 "3D scene analysis" is glad to announce the release of two new datasets in the context of the ongoing benchmarking activities. Researchers are invited to download the data and participate in these new benchmarks.

See the http://www2.isprs.org/commissions/comm3/wg4/tests.html for further information.


ISPRS Benchmark on Multi-platform Photogrammetry

The second part of the ISPRS Benchmark on Multi-platform Photogrammetry has been released. It concerns the image orientation task and two different sets of images are provided to the community:
i) airborne oblique set from an IGI PentaCam system;
ii) combined block from terrestrial and UAV-based images.

See the http://www2.isprs.org/data-description-Image-orientation.html for further information.


ISPRS Geospatial Week 2017 will be held in Wuhan, China

During the GSW 2015 the decision was taken to hold the next Geospatial Week in China, organised by Wuhan University. A strong Chinese delegation had submitted a winning application to the panel and was successful with their bid. Wuhan University is the largest university in the field of photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial science with approximately 4.000 undergraduate and graduate students.

GSW 2017 will take place between Sept. 18 - 22, 2017 with Deren Li, Honorary Member of ISPRS, as director. He will be joint by a large team headed by Jianya Gong (currently president of Com. VI), Huayi Wu and Bisheng Yang.

We look forward to an interesting and successful Geospatial Week and already now welcome all readers to join us in Wuhan in two years.
