Tales about Prague, the city of the 2016 ISPRS Congress
The Golden Age of Bohemia and Charles IV

by Lena Halounovà
ISPRS Congress Director

Nearly everybody who has come to the Czech Republic has heard about Charles Bridge – one of the most famous historical sights together with Prague Castle. You can take a snap of both of them in one photograph. However there are more famous objects with the same adjective:


Prague Castle, Malá Strana and Charles Bridge

Karlův most (Charles Bridge), Karlova univerzita (Charles University), Karlovo náměstí (Charles Square), Karlštejn – castle and village near Prague, Karlovy Vary –  a well-known spa in western Bohemia.
Why Charles and who was he? Charles IV (Czech: Karel IV. (1316 – 1378) is the most famous King of Bohemia. He was the second king of Bohemia from the House of Luxembourg, and the first king of Bohemia to also become Holy Roman Emperor. His mother was Elizabeth of Bohemia (Czech: Eliška Přemyslovna), a princess of the Bohemian Přemyslid dynasty who became queen consort of Bohemia as the first wife of King John the Blind (John of Luxembourg).
Charles IV received French education and was literate and fluent in five languages: Czech, French, German, Italian and Latin. He was crowned the Holy Roman Emperor in Bonn in 1346. His father was an important commander crossing Europe and taking part in many battles. However, his passion for wars ruined the Czech Lands. Charles IV started to reconstruct the King and Emperor’s power and the country itself. It was in 1344 when he founded together with his father Chrám sv. Víta (St. Vitus Cathedral) in Prague Castle. The Cathedral was finished in 1929.
If we would like to describe the activities and merits of Charles, we must mention that he founded the University of Prague (named Charles University later), the first university north of the Alps, a new quarter of Prague – Nové Město pražské (New Town of Prague) and a large castle close to Prague as a safeguard for the Czech coronation jewels. Everything was carried out in 1348 at the age of 32. The year was sad for him as his first and beloved wife Blanche de Valois died. He was married four times. All his marriages allowed him to enlargen the Czech Lands area. The best known was the last one – Elizabeth of Pomorania thanks to her ability to break swords.
When Charles came to Bohemia after his years spent in France in 1333, Prague Castle was dilapidated and all the royal castles were mortgaged and therefore he even had to live in a city house. Thanks to his decisions, Prague became one of the largest and most beautiful cities in Europe.
However his influence crossed over the boundary of the Czech Lands. His reign can be characterized as a transformation in the nature of the Empire and is remembered as the Golden Age of Bohemia.
He organized the states of the empire into peace-keeping confederations. In these, the Imperial cities figured prominently. The Swabian Landfriede confederation of 1370 was made up almost entirely of Imperial Cities.
He is famous also by bringing the first grapevine from France. The vineyards are still in many places in my country and produce wine of a high quality.
He is still regarded as Pater Patriae (father of the country or otec vlasti), a title first coined by Adalbertus Ranconis de Ericinio at his funeral.

ISPRS and The ISPRS Foundation Join Forces for Public Outreach
by Dieter Fritsch and Christian Heipke

Dieter Fritsch    Christian Heipke

This issue of the ISPRS eBulletin offers for the first time joint contents of ongoing activities of ISPRS and The ISPRS Foundation (TIF). ISPRS Council and the TIF Executive Committee decided to use this medium to disseminate current information amongst the ISPRS community, to inform not only about ISPRS affairs, but also to give notice of recent developments within TIF and its plans for offering travel grants for the Midterm Symposia.

ISPRS Council is very grateful to both, TIF and its donors, for the supporting the activities in photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences carried out by ISPRS. Without this support, in particular young scientists from less favoured nations and regions in the world would have less chance to actively participate in ISPRS. Council also believes that it is a good idea to disseminate news of the society and the foundation through the same medium, since this underlines tight connection of the two organisations.

The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) was established during the ISPRS Congress in Istanbul in 2004 and since then has been active in providing financial assistance for ISPRS affairs. In comparison with other international foundations TIF is still young. Therefore, our financial resources are limited. But so far TIF has successfully managed to increase fund raising and to provide grants to assist qualified individuals and organizations around the world. Furthermore it supports all kinds of innovation and knowledge dissemination for advancing the sciences and technologies of ISPRS. TIF offers several awards, such as awareness education, distance learning, exchange programs, fellowships, grants, internships, preservation and archiving, research initiatives, scholarships, standards projects, tools and literature and travel grants. TIF finances are governed by Bylaws according to regulations for exemption from US Federal and other taxation. The Bylaws provide for controlling the outflow of annual grant funds and therefore restrict the annual amount. For example, the annual amount spent 2012 was extraordinarily high, in total US$ 39,907 – in 2013 TIF spent in total close to US$12,000. The TIF Board of Trustees approves every finance item to be covered by TIF.

For 2014, the year of the ISPRS Midterm Symposia, TIF is ready to offer travel grants for all 8 events. Please visit the announcements below.

Dr. Michael Hauck


ASPRS Appoints Dr. Michael Hauck as Executive Director

ASPRS announces the appointment of Dr. Michael Hauck as the incoming ASPRS Executive Director. Outgoing Executive Director, James Plasker, announced his retirement from ASPRS, effective January 10, 2014. Hauck becomes only the fourth Executive Director in the past 47 years of the organization’s history. Both incoming and outgoing Executive Directors look forward to working together to ensure a smooth and effective transition.

Hauck has over 20 years of experience in the creation and application of remote sensing and geospatial information technologies. Reflecting the diverse membership of ASPRS, he has practiced in academic, government, Fortune 500, and start-up settings; and in industries that include transportation, energy, telecommunications, and defense. In addition to technical breadth, he is a versatile, collaborative, and adaptive leader with over a decade of general management experience that includes both board and executive positions in not-for-profit organizations. His volunteer work includes service on local, State, and National boards, e.g. the Venture West Network of entrepreneurs, the State of Wyoming Telecommunications Council, and the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies. His key scientific accomplishment has been the acquisition, processing, and interpretation of the first-ever deep seismic reflection profiles through the Himalayas, which were part of his PhD dissertation in Geological Sciences at Cornell University. Beyond training in science and engineering, Hauck is also a student of science and technology communications, and a graduate of the Wyoming trustee leadership development program.

The ISPRS Tracking and Imaging Challenge 2014
Call for Participation

The ISPRS Tracking and Imaging Challenge 2014, TIC’14, is aiming at stimulating research and creativity between communities such as image processing, spatial computing, and GIScience. TIC’14 is requiring that two types of data are linked in innovative ways, namely trajectory data as it is captured for example from mobile positioning sensors, smart cards, or e-tags, and image data as it is captured for example from tourist photos on Flickr, smartphones, CCTV, or car mounted cameras. You may even think of wearable computing. TIC’14 is on purpose broad and open to allow for unorthodox and novel applications and methods.

For all the details please check the attached PDF document, or visit the TIC’14 website at

Looking forward to your ideas,
Your ISPRS Organizers
Stephan Winter (Melbourne), Monika Sester (Hannover) and Alper Yilmaz (Ohio State)
