Call for Proposals

ISPRS Scientific Initiatives 2021

In accordance with the statutory mission and activities of ISPRS, the Society shall 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. For 2021, the ISPRS Council is making up to SFr. 70,000 available to support new scientific initiatives. The maximum funding assigned to any one scientific project shall be SFr. 10,000 per annum. Projects should commence on January 1, 2021 and typically last up to 12 months. In exceptional cases, applications for projects lasting up to 24 months will be considered.

Call for Participation

UAVid Competition

Semantic segmentation has been one of the leading research interests in photogrammetry and computer vision in recent years. The fast development of semantic segmentation attributes enormously to the large scale datasets, especially for the deep learning related methods. We introduce our UAVid dataset, a new high-resolution UAV semantic segmentation dataset, https://uavid.nl.

Special video session on the occasion of the 90th birthday of Prof. Gottfried Konecny

Dear all,

Thank you very much for your interest in the special video session on the occasion of the 90th birthday of Prof. Gottfried Konecny. Here is the link you need in order to register for the session: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_p2DU_QyiSSCD5lfx0t0FAQ.

Note that clicking on this link brings you to the ISPRS Student Consortium Virtual Room “Wisdom of the Elephant”. You will then need to fill in a small form (name, address, e-mail etc.) and then you will receive the actual link to take part in the session next Wednesday, June 17 at 1 pm GMT from the ISPRS Student Consortium, which acts as webinar host. Note that this will be a personal link, therefore you cannot share it with others.

The system we will be using is Zoom. Your connection may be more stable, if prior to the session you download and install a Zoom client. From Germany, you can do so at https://zoom.us/download., there will probably be other sites for our international participants, e.g. for China the web site is https://www.zoomvip.cn/download.html. However, this software is not necessary for the session (and it does not work in connection with smartphones).

Note that if you have a personal Zoom account, you can connect through this account. But such an account is not mandatory.

We have also created a digital greetings card at https://www.kudoboard.com/boards/irptKRvF

where you can upload personal wishes for Gottfried Konecny. If you want to do so, it would of course be great to do so before June 17.

All the best, Christian Heipke.

WHU-TLS Benchmark

Background

Deep learning-based methods have become the de-facto baseline for image registration task in the field of computer vision, but due to the lack of large benchmark datasets, they have not yet led to a true milestone for 3D point cloud registration. The large-scale benchmark datasets would promote the benchmarking of state-of-the-art algorithms in this field, and provide better comparisons and insights into the advantages and disadvantages of different registration methods on a common base.

ISPRS Congress 2020 - Important News

Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,

I believe you have all heard of the COVID-19 latest situation and developments in Europe and in France. 

The situation could indeed be better 😊 but the good news is that the French authorities like several other European authorities have decided for hard containment measures of the population following the successful Chinese example. France thus expects to go back to a normal situation in two months. A good indicator of this is that the French government has decided to postpone the second round of the French important local elections from the 22nd of March to the 21st of June.
