ISPRS ISAC - International Science Advisory Committee

 

The ISAC has been established to support the Council and the ISPRS General Assembly in identifying and addressing important S&T trends which impact the scope of the ISPRS Commissions and the activities which should be addressed by ISPRS Working Groups. The ISAC is to ensure that ISPRS S&T activities are in proper balance and cover the breadth of the Society's S&T mission.

ISAC Terms of Reference

  • Identify and prioritize scientific and technologic (S&T) trends which will impact the S&T activities of the Society and recommend actions to ISPRS Council.
  • Facilitate excellence in scientific research and development and the use of proper and appropriate technology by evaluating and refining S&T Resolutions proposed in advance by ISPRS Member Organizations and Commissions for approval by the quadrennial ISPRS General Assembly.
  • Collaborate with the ISPRS Council to formulate Resolutions for ISPRS General Assembly approval which will ensure that ISPRS is at the forefront of the S&T in the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences and covers the full breadth of the Society s mission.
  • Review proposed Working Groups Terms of Reference with Council and identify S&T gaps and overlaps and recommend corresponding fills and consolidations.
  • Evaluate inputs recommended for changing the overall scope and direction of S&T activities in the Society and advise Council accordingly.
  • Suggest collaborative S&T activities with other international societies and intergovernmental bodies to foster cooperation on the inter-disciplinary boundaries.
  • Propose worthy candidates for recognition and awards
