Symposium: 100 Years ISPRS - Advancing Remote Sensing Science

Basic Information
Date: 
05/07/2010 - 07/07/2010

Date: 5 - 7 July, 2010

Location: Vienna, Austria

The symposium will take place at the Vienna University of Technology at which premises the International Society for Photogrammetry (ISP) was founded by Eduard Dolezal on July 4, 1910. The Society changed its name to the International Society for Photogrammetry and remote sensing (ISPRS) in 1980, reflecting the increasing integration of the two disciplines. In our modern digital age, photogrammetry and remote sensing have virtually grown together, having as their common scope the extraction of reliable information from noncontact imaging and other sensor systems about the Earth and its environment, and other physical objects and processes through recording, measuring, analyzing and representation. 

The symposium themes reflect the focus of ISPRS Commission VII:

Multi-spectral and hyperspectral remote sensing
Microwave remote sensing
Lidar and laser scanning
Geometric modeling
Physical modeling and signatures
Change detection and process modelling
Land cover classification
Image processing and pattern recognition
data fusion and data assimilation
New earth observation satellites
