Terms of Reference

The goal of the work in Commission III is to design, develop and evaluate mathematical models and methods for automatic

  • orientation and calibration of images,
  • surface reconstruction,
  • fusion of multi-model data,
  • processing and interpretation of laser range data,
  • interpretation of images and
  • image sequence analysis

with emphasis on

  • integration of geometry, statistics and semantics,

WG III/1  Terms of Reference
  • Promote within ISPRS more or less fully automatic methods for calibration and orientation without requiring markers. Current state-of-the-art methods are to be tested with respect to general applicability and robustness. Thereby, a further refinement and robustification of these methods is to be fostered
  • WG III/1 will therefore provide various test data sets for image calibration/orientation tasks and invite researchers to evaluate their algorithms against known ground truth data with respect to general applicability and robustness.

WG III/3  Terms of Reference
  • Analyse point clouds from laser range finders, but also from multiple view image matching as basis for surface and object reconstruction as well as interpretation. Special problems to be addressed are segmentation and filtering, generation of digital surface models and digital elevation models, earth surface characterization, and automated as well as semi-automated extraction of objects from multiple sources (close range and aerial scans, RGB, NIR and others). There is a close cooperation with the WG V/3 on 'Surface and object reconstruction from terrestrial laser scanners'.

  • Develop and analyse various methods for automatically and efficiently generating high resolution 3D-city models, integrating all types of topographic features, especially buildings and vegetation. Problems addressed are the interpretation of the aerial, space borne and terrestrial image, laser, and (In)SAR data possibly together with information from traditional cartographic products, CAD models, and urban GIS, automatic as well as semi-automatic generation of urban models with level-of-detail (LOD) and inferred attribution including analysis of the trade-off between geometry and radiometry / texture for visualization and the assessment of efficiency and quality of techniques for extraction of buildings and vegetation and their dependence on the quality of the input data.
