ISPRS - CNES - HRS Study Team - Call for investigators

ISPRS and CNES have selected 11 test areas for the HRS Scientific Assessment Program.

The selection was made by ISPRS officials (Ian Dowman, Secretary General and Manfred Schroeder, Chairman of WG I/2 on Sensor Calibration and Testing) and representatives of French organisations involved in the SPOT-5 program: (Alain Baudoin and Christophe Valorge at CNES, Marc Bernard at Spot Image and Veronique Rodowski at IGN).
Among 40 proposed test sites 11 only have been selected, where cloud free HRS stereo pairs have already been acquired and where accurate Ground Reference Data already available were offered by the PI (ex: DEM with a 1-3 m Z accuracy).
The list of the selected test sites and Principal Investigators is given in the attached PDF file.
A final confirmation of these test sites can only be given after we have reached cooperation agreements with the PIs. This is envisaged before the end of April 2003.

If you want to join the HRS Study Team as a Co Investigator please send your request by May 15th, 2003 to:

  • Test site number (s)
  • Method(s) to be used for DEM generation and quality assessment with provided HRS and Ground Reference data. Other proposed studies (comparison with DEM derived from other sources, production of derived products or thematic analysis)
  • Your experience in DEM generation and quality assessment.


To become a member of the HRS Study Team you have to accept its rules and obligations, which are the following:

  • The Co-Investigators agree to use the HRS data and ground reference data which will be provided by the HRS Study Team Secretariat if possible by June 2003 (supposing the delivery of Reference data by the Principal Investigator before end of April 2003) only for scientific purposes.
  • They agree to deliver to the Secretariat:
    • an intermediate report on the status of the work and first results by September 15th, 2003.
