ISPRS Technical Commission I Symposium 2014

Sustaining Land Imaging: UAVs to Satellites

Pecora 19 & ISPRS Commission I Symposium
November 17-20, 2014 - Renaissance Denver Hotel, Denver, Colorado USA


Announcement

The ISPRS Technical Commission I Symposium, in conjunction with the Pecora 19 ASPRS Fall Meeting and IAG Commission 4 Assembly, will take place November 17-20, 2014 at the Renaissance Denver Hotel in Denver, Colorado (USA). The four-day event will include technical programs, plenary sessions with keynote and invited papers, and parallel sessions with oral and poster presentations. In addition, the symposium exhibition will feature the latest developments in commercial geospatial technologies.

The main focus of the ISPRS Technical Commission I is primary data acquisition and processes which include remote sensing technologies, sensor platforms, data processing, geometric and radiometric modeling and sensor calibration, georeferencing and sensor orientation, image and data standards, low-level sensor integration, and system design. The ISPRS Technical Commission I Working Groups play a vital role in organizing meetings which fosters multidisciplinary research and developments, and international cooperation.

The main topics of the Symposium are:

  • Data acquisition and pre-processing, and integration of various imaging sensors with other relevant systems on remote sensing platforms
  • Design, construction, characterization, and installation of imaging and non-optical imaging sensors (IR, SAR, IfSAR, LiDAR, RF, etc.) for aerial and spaceborne missions for Earth observation
  • Data quality and performance validation of SAR, LIDAR and optical systems for DEM generation
  • Testing, calibration and evaluation of optical and non-optical imaging sensors, including laboratory, in-flight/in-situ, inter-calibration and test fields
  • Data processing techniques, direct sensor orientation, evaluation of line sensors for DEM generation, on-board data processing
  • image technologies and data transfer protocols, standardization of definitions and measurements of active and passive imaging sensor parameters, geometric and radiometric properties, quality standards, and factors affecting data quality
  • Integrated platform guidance, navigation, direct georeferencing and integrated sensor orientation
  • Mobile Mapping, UAV/UAS, and autonomous system applications
  • Airborne remote sensing applications

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to join fellow researchers, scientists and practitioners from mapping and remote sensing, at this important event.  Attend general and technical sessions, exhibits, and educational workshops on the very latest remote sensing research, modeling, applications, analysis techniques, and technologies. Reconnect with old friends or make new ones at the ISPRS Technical Commission I Symposium.
