ISPRS Scientific Initiatives: Announcement of 2017 Funding
by Songnian Li
ISPRS Treasurer


In accordance with the statutory mission and activities of ISPRS, the Society should provide funds to support scientific and other initiatives, which will further improve its international status in the field of the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences, and will therefore benefit all ISPRS members. After two rounds of calls for Scientific Initiatives projects for 2014 and 2015 physical years, the Council issued a new call in September 2016 for 2017 projects, with an original total budget of 40,000 Swiss Francs.

By the submission deadline, twenty-two proposals were received from the five Technical Commissions. Comments were sought from the relevant Technical Commission Presidents, and a sub-committee of three Council members was convened to perform an independent review of the proposals based on their scientific merits as well as value to and promotion of ISPRS. The sub-committee then came up with a ranked list of projects; based on the ranking seven projects were recommended to the Council for approval, with a total budget of 53,400 Swiss Francs approved. Brief summaries of the accepted projects can be found at:

ISPRS ‘Pioneers of Photogrammetry’ Place Names      

ISPRS ‘Pioneers of Photogrammetry’ Place Names

ISPRS is very proud to report that a UK Antarctic Place-names Committee has recently named four glaciers on the Antarctic Peninsula after ISPRS pioneers of analytical and digital photogrammetric methods. The names Doyle Glacier (Frederick J. Doyle, 1920-2013); Helava Glacier (Uuno ‘Uki’ Helava, 1923-1994); Kraus Glacier (Karl Kraus, 1939-2006) and Torlegård Glacier (Kennert Torlegård, 1937-2016) recognise the outstanding contributions these scientists made to the development of analytical and digital photogrammetric methods in recent decades, including DEM extraction using image correlation.

Antarctic features only receive names where there is a need to identify them precisely for navigation, field operations or science. Here, the previously un-named glaciers were included in a joint NERC funded project between British Antarctic Survey ( and Newcastle University ( to measure volume change over time for a selection of glaciers in the Antarctic Peninsula region. Modern, rigorous photogrammetric methods were applied to a previously little-exploited archive of aerial photographs dating back to the 1950s, to generate and compare surface elevation DEMs with those produced from modern day aerial and satellite imagery. The analytical and digital methods developed by the named pioneers were the key to unlocking these previously difficult to use aerial photographs and were therefore considered an apt choice for place names for the glaciers.

The new place names build on an existing theme of ‘Pioneers of Photogrammetry’ on Arctowski Peninsula (64° 44′ S, 62° 27′ W) that recognise key figures in the early development of photogrammetry and include Arago Glacier, Beaupré Cove, Hugershoff Cove, Pulfrich Peak, Wild Spur, Zeiss Needle and many others.

For full details about these photogrammetry place names please visit the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee online gazetteer and web-map at:

Global Geospatial Industry Outlook      

Global Geospatial Industry Outlook released by Geospatial Media

The Geospatial Industry Outlook highlights the trends and directions of the global geospatial industry along with the Countries Geospatial Readiness Index - a first ever ranking index of 50 selected countries on the basis of their geospatial readiness.

Global Geospatial Industry Trends and Directions discusses the drivers of the geospatial industry such as Cloud, IoT, Robotics and Automation, Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence, which are expanding the horizons and opportunities manifold. The report discusses how several new players are entering the geospatial industry opening new avenues for growth. It discusses how solution-centric and system integration oriented character of the industry determines successes making it imperative for businesses to explore collaborative partnerships, while maintaining unique business propositions.

The Countries Geospatial Readiness Index encapsulates the geospatial infrastructure and policy framework, institutional capacity, user adoption level and the industry capacity to evaluate whether a nation is geospatial ready or not. The index, a first ever study of this type, aims to stimulate debates and discussions to identify the status of 50 countries with respect to their geospatial preparedness. The index’s purpose is to act as a benchmark to initiate the development of geospatial in the countries selected for indexing to seize new and available opportunities that can benefit society globally.

Carl Pulfrich Award 2017      

Call for Nominations for the Prestigious Carl Pulfrich Award 2017

Leica Geosystems is calling industry related professionals to submit their nominations for this year’s Carl Pulfrich Award, the prestigious industry honour that recognises advancements in the fields of photogrammetry, remote sensing and earth imaging.

Dr. Carl Pulfrich launched the Photogrammetric Week in 1909 as “a vacation course in stereo-photogrammetry”. The University of Stuttgart is therefore pleased that the Carl Pulfrich Award will again be presented during the 56th Photogrammetric Week, September 11-15, 2017 in Stuttgart.

For more information on the call see here…

Regular updates of the Photogrammetric Week’s program are to be found on the following website:      

Multispectral and Thermal Cameras for Precision Agriculture

Multispectral and thermal sensors were until recently too heavy and bulky for small UAV platforms, even though their potential was demonstrated almost a decade ago. Nowadays, however, lightweight multispectral and thermal sensors on small UAVs are commercially available and are used in multiple applications including precision agriculture.

Multispectral and thermal sensors are mounted on drones and can be used to assess vitality of the plants, crop yield estimations and other vegetation monitoring applications.
