New Terminology Guide
We are pleased to announce that Photogrammetric Terminology: Second
Edition by Paul R. T. Newby, Editor Emeritus of The Photogrammetric
Record, is now available (link to
10.1111/j.1477-9730.2012.00693.x). Adapted and expanded from the
widely-used first edition, the new compilation has been completely revised and
updated. It will continue to promote consistency of language and to serve as a
"style guide" for photogrammetric literature.
It will be introduced
through a separate paper "International Photogrammetric Terminology - A New
Edition", to be presented at the Australian Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry

OBSERVE project has the vision of establishing a new Balkan EO community
of multilevel stakeholders that will make use of state of the art
technological developments, products and knowhow from the existing
European EO community and industry.

The working group III/4,
′Complex scene analysis and 3D reconstruction′, will carry out an international
test on urban object detection and 3D building reconstruction from airborne image and
Two data sets will be distributed to the participants, who may carry out one of two tasks:
- Urban object detection: a variety of objects, including buildings, roads, cars, and trees
can be extracted. Participants may choose one or more object classes.
- 3D building reconstruction: detailed building roof models according to LoD2 of the
CityGML standard are to be extracted.
Our working group will test submitted results against reference data.
Results submitted before September 30, 2011 can be published in one or two special sessions
on the benchmark at the ISPRS congress in Melbourne in September 2012.
More information about the test and about the procedure for obtaining the test data can
be found at
