Finances

ISPRS is supported financially by four main membership categories: Ordinary Members, Associate Members, Regional Members, and Sustaining Members. All fees are payable on an annual basis.. It is the responsibility of each member to pay their full membership fee each year in Swiss Francs or the equivalent in USD or Euros. All banking fees at the originating bank are to be paid by the Member.

 

  1. Each Ordinary Member (ODM) organization remits fees to the Treasurer of ISPRS on a scale broadly related to the number of photogrammetrists and remote sensing specialists it represents.

    Ordinary Membership is arranged in eight (8) categories as follows:

    Number of Active
     Specialists        Category       Annual Subscription
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
     Less than 26           1            115  Swiss Francs
         26 -  50           2            230  Swiss Francs
         51 - 150           3            690  Swiss Francs
        151 - 250           4           1150  Swiss Francs

    More than 800           8           5520  Swiss Francs
    

    Ordinary Member organizations select their own category and may at any time increase their category but may not lower their category without previous approval by the General Assembly.
