Technical Commission WG VI/2 organised the fifth contest for Computer Assisted Teaching ″CATCON 5″ at the ISPRS Congress, Beijing, China, on July, 9, 2008. The main objective of the contest is to promote the development and dissemination of effective, educational and user-friendly

  • multimedia tutorials,
  • simulations and virtual environments,
  • information packages or data sets, and
  • application software

designed and used specifically for computer assisted teaching (CAT) in photogrammetry, remote sensing or GIS.


In general, the CAT tutorial, software or data set is preferred to be non-commercial and provided to users without licence charges or other fees for not-for-profit use. Since many ISPRS attendees have been interested in this contest at three previous Congresses, this is a very good opportunity to show the effectiveness and utility of your CAT product.
