Deadline for submission of abstracts for the ISPRS Hannover Workshop 2013 - High-Resolution Earth Imaging for Geospatial Information is 1st February.

Workshop goals
Earth imaging from air and space has undergone major changes over the last years. Examples of new and significant developments comprise the development of digital aerial cameras, laser scanners and UAVs, now in everyday use, and the ever increasing number of high-resolution and hyperspectral optical and SAR/InSAR satellite sensors. Among other topics sensor and system calibration issues are of major importance as they govern the achievable quality of the results of the final results.
Today, all these data are used for the production of geospatial information. At the same time, updating existing geospatial databases has gained more importance, and auto¬mation has had a significant impact on the processing chain.
In addition, the stunning success of virtual globes, e. g. Google Earth or Bing Maps along with developments such as GEO (intergovernmental Group of Earth Observations), GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of Systems) and GMES (Global Monitoring of Environment and Security) have significantly changed the remote sensing arena in the last few years.

These developments form the background for the ISPRS Hannover Workshop High-Resolution Earth Imaging for Geospatial Information 2013, which you are cordially invited to attend. This meeting is a follow-up workshop of those held in Hannover in previous years.
The single-track workshop 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.

IPI is proud to announce that Hexagon Geosystems agreed to be the exclusive sponsor of this event. During Thursday 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.


Topics and paper submission

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

  • Digital aerial cameras
  • Exploitation of high resolution space images
  • Potential of small satellites for topographic mapping
  • Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS)
  • Airborne laser scanning
  • High-resolution Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
  • Deformation monitoring based on SAR data
  • Hyperspectral imaging
  • Sensor and system calibration and integration
  • Sensors and methods of DEM generation
  • Aerial and satellite image analysis
  • GIS driven updating and refinement of geospatial databases
  • Virtual globes
  • Rapid mapping for environ­mental applications and disaster management
  • From experimental systems for object acqui­sition and updating to commercial solutions

The workshop language is English. All accepted papers will be published electronically and will be available at the meeting, and on the web. Publishing will be handled by Copernicus GmbH. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing after the workshop.
