ISPRS - Technical Commission III 2012-2016

Photogrammetric Computer Vision and Image Analysis

Our Mission:

The goal of the work in Technical Commission III is the design, development and evaluation of mathematical models and methods for automatic orientation and calibration of images, surface reconstruction, fusion of multi-modal data, processing and interpretation of laser range data, interpretation of images and image sequence analysis with the emphasis on integration of geometry, statistics and semantics, modeling of spatial objects and temporal events, modeling context, scale behavior of appearance models, use of graphical models, especially Markov random fields and Bayesian networks.
