ISPRS seeks comments on restructuring of Council
In recent months Council has assessed the internal structure of the ISPRS governing body and is now suggesting some changes to be implemented at ISPRS Nice Congress.
In preparation of these changes ISPRS is seeking comments from the whole community and to this end has opened a blog, see http://www2.isprs.org/news/blog/detail/council-restructuring.html. Can I ask you to please let us have your comments until Jan. 31, 2019 at the latest, so that we can continue the discussions and prepare an update in time to bring the issue to the General Assembly in Nice.
Thank you very much in advance and all the best,
Christian Heipke, ISPRS President 2016-2020
SEN1-2 Dataset for Deep Learning in SAR-Optical Data Fusion published
In accordance with their terms of reference (SAR big data provided by Sentinel-1, fusion of SAR and complementary data), ISPRS WG I/3 is happy to announce the publication of the SEN1-2 dataset for the fostering of deep learning approaches in SAR-optical data fusion. SEN1-2 consists of 282,384 pairs of corresponding Sentinel-1 SAR and Sentinel-2 optical image patches, collected from across the globe and throughout all meteorological seasons. It is intended to support the introduction of computer vision approaches to multi-sensor remote sensing and can be used for studies on image matching, image-to-image translation, or image colorization, to name just a few examples.
