The Symposium venue Karlsruhe in GERMANY has an excellent train connection to Frankfurt International Airport, so that international participants will have flexible and easy travelling options from all over the world.
The Technical Commission I Sensor Systems intend to organize the Symposium’s technical sessions in single-track fashion to support maximum information, interaction and communication. For allowing the presentation and publication of “cutting edge” technical papers as well as early concepts or latest, highly application-relevant results, two submission possibilities: full papers to be assessed by peer-reviewing for ISPRS Annals and reviewing based on abstracts for ISPRS Archives.
Attached to the ISPRS TC I Midterm Symposium Innovative Sensing – From Sensors to Methods and Applications, several one- or half-day workshops and tutorials with special focus on young scientists and practitioners from industry and (non-)governmental agencies will be organized. This shall include, for instance, tutorials and workshops for UAS- and spaceborne data acquisition strategies, modern calibration methods, sensor-oriented SAR and hyperspectral data processing, multi-sensor fusion concepts etc.
The interaction between science and industry will be further supported by an exhibition and possibilities for demos and master classes of internationally leading companies in sensing and processing of geospatial information.
With a view to the new ISPRS commission structure, Technical Commission I Sensor Systems is concerned with the design, construction, characterization, calibration and use of imaging and non-imaging sensors, sensor systems and sensor networks for photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information science. This includes the development of new and innovative technological concepts, yet likewise models and methods to optimally exploit, calibrate and thoroughly evaluate new sensors, networks and single sensor components. The recent years were characterized by rapid developments in various fields of sensor technology, design of smart sensor networks, small un-manned platforms (UAS) and new satellite imaging concepts or satellite constellations, respectively. This includes the sector of – often low-cost – industrial imaging sensors and likewise the development of highly sophisticated and specialized sensors for Earth Observation, thereby covering multiple modes of active or passive sensor technology and various scales of imaging.
- Innovative and integrated UAS-oriented sensor and (small) platform concepts
- Systems and methods for terrestrial and mobile mapping in complex indoor and outdoor environments
- Small and low-cost active sensing (micro-LIDAR and -RADAR sensors)
- Design and realization of sensors and constellations for digital aerial and spaceborne missions for Earth observation
- Geometric and radiometric properties, quality standards, and factors affecting data quality
- Benchmark definition, calibration and evaluation of imaging and non-optical imaging sensors
- Integrated platform guidance, navigation, direct georeferencing (positioning and orientation) and integrated sensor orientation
- On-board (pre-)processing and concepts for embedded systems
Further topics relevant for the symposium can be found in the Terms of Reference (ToR) of the following linked ISPRS Commission I Working Groups and ISPRS Intercommission Working Groups.
