International Scientific Societies meet in Hannover for the Day of Geodesy

During the Day of the Geodesy on May 24, 2019, the leaders of four international scientific societies in the field of geodesy and geoinformatics met in Hannover for talks on possible collaboration. Prof. Monika Sester (Leibniz University Hannover) represented the International Cartographic Association (ICA) as its Vice President; the other three societies were represented by their presidents: Prof. Harald Schuh (GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam) participated in the meeting for the International Association of Geodesy (IAG), Prof. Rudolf Staiger (University of Bochum) for the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) and Prof. Christian Heipke (Leibniz University Hannover) for the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS). What is remarkable about this meeting is that all four representatives come from Germany; an unprecedented constellation in the, for some of the societies, more than 100-year history.

Intelligent Systems for Crisis Management – Gi4DM 2018

In the past several years, there have been significant technological advances in the field of crisis response. However, many aspects concerning the efficient collection and integration of geo-information, applied semantics and situation awareness for disaster management remain open. Improving crisis response systems and making them intelligent requires extensive collaboration between emergency responders, disaster managers, system designers and researchers alike. To facilitate this process, the Gi4DM (GeoInformation for Disaster Management) conferences have been held regularly since 2005. The events are coordinated by the UN-GGIM Geospatial Societies (previous JB GIS) and the "GeoUnions of the International Science Council".
