The ISPRS Foundation Brochure

The greatest reward for donating to TIF is the warm feeling one receives by helping advance the sciences and technologies from which one has benefited in their career. The financial assistance provided by The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) makes an important contribution by enabling grant recipients to better develop their expertise in the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences.

The vast majority of grants are provided to individuals and organizations in developing and reform countries. These include grants that support education and applications for emerging markets in many regions of the world as well as providing travel assistance for young scientists to attend ISPRS events.

The ISPRS Foundation have published a revised brochure, offering information on the organisation, which we ask you to distribute to interested parties.
