IEEE GRSS and ISPRS sign MoU to enhance cooperation of the two societies

ISPRS is proud to announce that on October 10, 2018, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between IEEE GRSS President Adriano Camps and ISPRS President Christian Heipke. IEEE GRSS, the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, is an organization which deals with the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as they apply to the remote sensing of the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, as well as the processing, interpretation and dissemination of this information, and thus a sister society of ISPRS.

ISPRS seeks comments on restructuring of Council

In recent months Council has assessed the internal structure of the ISPRS governing body and is now suggesting some changes to be implemented at ISPRS Nice Congress.

In preparation of these changes ISPRS is seeking comments from the whole community and to this end has opened a blog, see http://www2.isprs.org/news/blog/detail/council-restructuring.html. Can I ask you to please let us have your comments until Jan. 31, 2019 at the latest, so that we can continue the discussions and prepare an update in time to bring the issue to the General Assembly in Nice.

Thank you very much in advance and all the best,
Yours sincerely,
Christian Heipke, ISPRS President 2016-2020


SEN1-2 Dataset for Deep Learning in SAR-Optical Data Fusion published

In accordance with their terms of reference (SAR big data provided by Sentinel-1, fusion of SAR and complementary data), ISPRS WG I/3 is happy to announce the publication of the SEN1-2 dataset for the fostering of deep learning approaches in SAR-optical data fusion. SEN1-2 consists of 282,384 pairs of corresponding Sentinel-1 SAR and Sentinel-2 optical image patches, collected from across the globe  and throughout all meteorological seasons. It is intended to support the introduction of computer vision approaches to multi-sensor remote sensing and can be used for studies on image matching, image-to-image translation, or image colorization, to name just a few examples.

ConfTool - software for paper and registration management free of charge for ISPRS events

One of the important targets of ISPRS is to permanently improve quality of the science results presented at any ISPRS events. ISPRS proceedings are the main scientific result of these meetings.

For many ISPRS events, the paper management system ConfTool has been successfully employed in recent the past. Examples include big events such as the 2016 Prague Congress, but also small meetings with only a few dozen papers. ConfTool can be set up to handle all requirements of the reviewing process both for The International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences and the ISPRS Annals of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences.
