ISPRS Publishes Scientific Vision and Research Agenda

With the increased availability of very high-resolution satellite imagery, terrain based imaging and participatory sensing, inexpensive platforms, and advanced information and communication technologies, the application of imagery is now ubiquitous, playing an important role in many aspects of life and work today. Questions that are frequently asked by academia, industry, users, and young students include: What are the major scientific and technical challenges we are facing? What are the state-of-the art in our disciplines? What are the key issues to be addressed in the future? In an attempt to address such questions, ISPRS has prepared a collective scientific vision and research agenda for the Society in the run-up to the 2016 Prague Congress. It has recently been published on-line in the International Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing as an original article with the title ‘Information from imagery: ISPRS scientific vision and research agenda’ [1].

The paper examines the significant challenges currently facing ISPRS and its communities, such as providing high-quality information, enabling advanced geospatial computing, and supporting collaborative problem solving. The state-of-the-art in ISPRS related research and development is reviewed and the trends and topics for future work are identified. By providing an overarching scientific vision and research agenda, we hope to call on and mobilize all ISPRS scientists, practitioners and other stakeholders to continue improving our understanding and capacity on information from imagery and to deliver advanced geospatial knowledge that enables humankind to better deal with the challenges ahead, posed for example by global change, ubiquitous sensing, and a demand for real-time information generation.

The paper will form part of a Special Issue entitled “State-of-the-art in photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences” in the International Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, which is scheduled for publication in 2016 to coincide with the XXIII ISPRS Congress in Prague, but is accessible now as a free-to-access, in-press article at:

You are invited to read it and provide feedback.

United Arab Emirates University


Letter of Intent from UAE to Host 2020 ISPRS Congress in Dubai

As the 2016 ISPRS Congress approaches, some Ordinary Members have already started to think beyond. As a first sign, Council recently received a letter of intent from Dubai Municipality on behalf of the United Arab Emirates University, Ordinary Member of UAE, to bid for the organisation of the XXIV ISPRS Congress in Dubai in 2020. In the same year Dubai will host the World Expo.

Two New Fora at ISPRS Congress 2016

As part of its aim to more closely cooperate with the practical side of our discipline, ISPRS will organise two new fora at the upcoming ISPRS Congress:

  • the ISPRS - UN-GGIM National Mapping and Cadastral Agency Forum
  • the ISPRS - IAA Space Agency Forum

The NMCA Forum will be co-organised by UN-GGIM, the United Nations initiative on Global Geospatial Information Management, while co-host of the Space Agency Forum is IAA - the International Academy of Astronautics. Both fora will be held on July 14 and 15, i.e. during the first week of the Congress and will also feature common sessions.

Engineering Index


ISPRS Archives and Annals Submitted to Engineering Index

The ISPRS Archives and Annals have recently been submitted for indexing at the Engineering Compendex, also called Engineering Index or EI. EI ( is a major index and leading engineering information discovery platform and an index of major importance for many scientific authors.

ISPRS hopes to be successful and have their proceedings publications included in the EI as soon as possible. Typically, the evaluation of the submission takes several months.

7th World Science Forum in Budapest      

7th World Science Forum in Budapest Adopts Declaration on Sustainable Development Goals

ICSU, along with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, was a co-organizer of the 7th World Science Forum held from 4th to 7th November 2015 in Budapest. At the conclusion of the conference, a six-point declaration was adopted.

The declaration affirmed strong support for the newly-adopted Sustainable Development Goals, calling for action towards the goals as an underlying approach to all policies.

“We are committed to take and promote urgent and transformative steps to enable a shift for a new development path towards sustainable, equitable and more resilient societies and economies,” it said.

The declaration endorsed statements published recently by major scientific organisations including IPCC, ICSU, UNESCO, EASAC, and the outcome statement of the international science conference “Our Common Future under Climate Change” co-organized by UNESCO, ICSU, Future Earth and major research institutions in France in July 2015.

It reiterated a call contained in the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 to “enhance the scientific and technical work on disaster risk reduction,” and affirmed the importance of sound, independent scientific advice for policy-making. Finally, it called for international collaboration on capacity building and mobilization in the developing world, and an equitable participation of women, young scientists, and minority groups in the practice and application of science, also through capacity-building programmes addressed to young scientists.

The full declaration is available here.


Declaration on Future Earth and Space Science Education

A declaration aimed to highlight the importance of Earth and space science education in future scientific progress and to reinforce the link between the scientific community, national governments and the public to contribute to sustainable development of society through scientific awareness and actions related to challenging problems of society was adopted on 6th December, 2015.

Movin’ on Up


Movin’ on Up

When our Palaeolithic ancestors fashioned the first wheel, it must have blown everyone’s minds. At least for a couple of years.

Then an entrepreneurial caveman would of course have sauntered into a large feast of some sort, smiling graciously, showing people the axis he’d made for fitting two wheels together. He’d leave that night with a bellyful of goat meat and contracts signed in flint. “Sure”, he might’ve said, “the first wheel was great and everything, but I have this totally fantastic idea: let’s see how far this can take us. I’m sick of walking. Aren’t you all sick of it?”

Drones Bonding with Cinema

Perhaps the most exciting branch of commercial UAV technology is its ability to water our creative soil. Cinematography and professional video services are, quite frankly, the sexiest of the UAV industry line-up, and using drones for these purposes has levelled the playing field for directors seeking that perfect panorama without spending thousands on a single helicopter shot.
