Goals of the joint ISPRS event
Automated extraction of objects from remotely sensed data is an important topic of research in Computer Vision, Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing, and Geoinformation Science. In order to discuss recent developments and future trends in research in automatic object extraction with respect to sensors and processing techniques, the two well known ISPRS workshops "Photogrammetric Image Analysis" (PIA) and "High resolution earth imaging for geospatial information" (HRIGI, also known as the ISPRS-Hannover Workshop) will be held as a common event for the first time. The location of the event will be Munich, Germany.
While in the past PIA specialised on the automatic exploitation of the image content, the strongest side of HRIGI was the geometric processing of aerial and in particular of space imagery. Realising that both areas - geometry and semantics - can significantly support each other when considered together in photogrammetric image exploitation, the two events will be organised under a common roof in March 2015 in Munich. At the same time they will keep their identity, as the meeting will be organised as two parallel workshops with common plenary sessions and common proceedings.
The aim of the common event is to seek, exploit and deepen the synergies between geometry and semantics, and to give the two scientific communities the possibility to discuss with and to learn from each other. The joint event addresses experts from research, government, and private industry. It consists of high quality papers, and provides an international forum for discussion of leading research and technological developments as well as applications in the field.

Topics and paper submission
You are encouraged to contribute to the workshop by submitting your latest research and development in the areas of:

- Small satellites and satellite constellations for mapping
- Exploitation of high resolution space images
- UAVs and other unconventional platforms
- High-resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) from air and space
- Hyperspectral imaging
- Sensor and system calibration and integration
- Surface modeling and reconstruction
- 3Dd object extraction: buildings, roads, vegetation
- Learning and statistical methods for object extraction
- Sensor and data fusion including information from GIS, BIM, or CAD
- Image analysis for geospatial data update and change detection
- Global landcover and landuse mapping
- Rapid mapping for environmental applications and disaster management

The workshop language is English. Prospective authors are invited to submit a full paper of 8 pages max. or an extended abstract with a length of approximately 1000 words, formatted according to the ISPRS guidelines for authors,
Full papers will undergo a rigorous double blind review process. Accepted papers will be published in the ISPRS Annals series. Abstracts will also be peer reviewed, and upon acceptance authors will be invited to submit a regular paper, which will be published I the Archives series of ISPRS.
The organizers are proud to announce that Hexagon Geosystems agreed to be the exclusive sponsor of this event. During Thurs¬day afternoon there will be a master class where the processing chain of photogrammetry and remote sensing is illustrated by software demonstrations and real-life examples.

We want to let you all know that the ISPRS TC I/ Pecora 19 and IAG Commission 4 Symposium website is now live and working and the call for abstracts online tool through Copernicus is live and accepting abstracts.

Please visit:

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to join fellow researchers, scientists and practitioners from mapping and remote sensing, at this important event. Reconnect with old friends or make new ones at the ISPRS Technical Commission I Symposium.

See you in Denver!

Council explores revision of ISPRS Commission structure members and ISPRS community at large are asked for comments

A number of developments and assessments have led to this proposal for the restructuring of the ISPRS commissions.

We are most interested in your opinion about this important development and cordially invite you to take part in this discussion. You may do so by sharing your comments on the blog, or by sending an e-mail to the Secretary General. The topic will also be discussed during the eight midterm symposia being held during 2014.

The project GI-N2K (Geographic Information : Need to Know)

ISPRS is represented on the Advisory Committee for the EU project by Ian Dowman.  The project web page is and the following is an abstract from that:

GI-N2K aims to answer the question on how the education and vocational training in the domain of GI S&T can match with the actual job requirements in the job market.

GI-N2K builds upon the existing Geographic Information Science and Technology Body of Knowledge (GI S&T BoK) that was developed by the American University Consortium for Geographic Information Science , published in 2006 by the Association of American Geographers . The ‘BoK’ will be updated and brought into line with the new technological developments and the European perspective ( e.g. importance of INSPIRE in Europe).

The renewed BoK will apply an ontological approach and will take the form of a dynamic e-platform (wiki-based format) including tools to use, explore the BoK, to define curricula , training opportunities and courses and to define job profiles.

Two surveys have been launched and are available on the website: .  These surveys are looking to inform the project on which competences are needed for GI-jobs and about the main competences being taught.  Any individual or organisation is able to complete the surveys with a deadline of 05 February 2014.
