There will be 4 invited speakers covering all aspects of the Photogrammetric and Geospatial fields: Jantien Stoter (3D Geoinformation group, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands) on “Designing, developing and implementing better systems to model 3D cities, buildings and landscapes”; Davide Scaramuzza (Robotics and Perception group, University of Zurich, Switzerland) on “Autonomous, Agile, Vision-controlled Drones: from Active to Event Vision”; André Streilein (Swisstopo, Switzerland) on “National mapping agencies in a changing period”; Camillo Ressl (Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation, Photogrammetry group, Technical University Vienna, Austria) on “Investigating Dense Image Matching”.

Riva del Garda, Italy

The event will provide ample opportunities for scientific exchange and discussion. All submitted papers, which will be handled electronically using Conftool, will follow two types of submissions: (1) full papers undergoing a double-blind peer-review process (deadline: January 12th, 2018) and (2) extended abstracts undergoing a review process (deadline: January 26th, 2018). The event will be organized by FBK Trento in collaboration with ARIDA (Association for Real-time Imaging and Dynamic Analysis), JSPRS (Japanese Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing) and SIFET (Italian Society of Photogrammetry and Topography).

The venue of the event is a beautiful small city on the Garda Lake, the largest lake in Italy. The mild climate of Riva del Garda favors a typically Mediterranean vegetation with lemon trees, olive trees, laurels and palm trees: a true Mediterranean island at the foot of the Dolomites. The center of Riva del Garda will fascinate you with its works of art and architecture, witnessing to ancient history and a past rich in art and culture.

On behalf of the symposium organizing committee, we are looking forward to seeing you in Riva in June 2018.

General Announcements

Albrecht Meydenbauer      

150th Anniversary of the notion "Photogrammetrie"

This year marks the 150th anniversary of the first publication of the notion “Photogrammetrie”! It first appeared in an article written in German by Albrecht Meydenbauer.

The article with the title "Photogrammetrie" appeared in issue 49/1867 of the "Wochenblatt des Architektenvereins zu Berlin" (from 1868 onwards entitled “Deutsche Bauzeitung”) from 6 December 1867. In this article, Meydenbauer reported about in the terrestrial photogrammetric survey of the city of Freyburg (Unstrut), Germany, conducted by himself in the summer of same year. He also referred to foundations of the said new technology laid by the French pioneers Chevallier and Laussedat.

A facsimile of this issue of the Wochenblatt can be found here

Further information on the genesis of the term Photogrammetry can be found in a report by Prof. Albrecht Grimm published at Photogrammetric Week 2007 (cf., and a version written in German for the 1980 ISPRS Congress in Hamburg nearly 40 years earlier is available at

Prof. Albrecht Grimm, incidentally, was recently awarded the prestigious Meydenbauer Medal of the German Society of Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Geoinformation (DGPF) to honor his lifetime achievement.


Gilberto Câmara      

Appointment of Mr Gilberto Câmara as the next GEO Secretariat Director

The Group on Earth Observations is pleased to announce the appointment of Gilberto Câmara as the next GEO Secretariat Director, effective 1 July 2018.

Gilberto Câmara is a leading researcher in Geoinformatics, Geographical Information Science, and Land Use Change with Brazil's National Institute for Space Research (INPE). He has been recognised internationally for promoting free access and open source software for Earth observation data.

Under his guidance, as Director for Earth observation (2001-2005) and Director General (2006-2012), INPE made significant advances in land change monitoring using remote sensing, which contributed to Brazil achieving 80% decrease in deforestation in the Amazon rainforest, supporting Brazil’s commitment made at the UNFCCC COP15. This achievement was hailed as “the biggest environmental success story in a decade” by the scientific journal Nature. In support of Brazil's pledge to the 2015 Paris Agreement, Gilberto lead a team that projected Brazil’s future emissions from land use and agriculture.

Gilberto is a co-chair of the Belmont Forum, an international consortium of the funding agencies of global environmental change research. The Forum supports international trans-disciplinary research, providing knowledge for understanding, mitigating and adapting to global environmental change.

Gilberto has been involved in GEO since its early days, and led the Brazilian delegations that helped initiated GEO and GEOSS.

ISPRS extends congratulations to Gilberto Câmara on his appointment and looks forward to future collaboration.

ISPRS WG V/3 and WG V/4 Geospatial Hackathon "Citizen Science"
September 22-23, 2017
Ankara, Turkey
by Dr. Berk Anbaroglu and Prof. Dr. Sultan Kocaman


Hackathons are events in which people gather together to develop a software project within, usually, 36-48 hours. Even though many hackathon projects include a “geospatial” aspect, this is usually not the focus. Those who focus on “geospatial technologies” are usually hosted by a company, limiting the technologies/data that could be relied on. With the emergence of Open Data and Open Software, the developers could initiate a project in a more independent way. In addition, we are also aware that Citizen Science is an emerging research area in the world. This was officially recognised at the ISPRS congress held in Prague, leading to the formation of the WG V/3 entitled “Promotion of Regional Collaboration in Citizen Science and Geospatial Technology”. Consequently, the first ISPRS geospatial hackathon was organised in Ankara, Turkey on 22-23 September by WG V/3 and WG V/4 with the theme of “citizen science”. We wanted to promote open technologies and share our enthusiasm on citizen science with our colleagues and students.

Narrative Report on ISPRS SC & WG V/3, V/5 Summer School on Geo-processing tools and technologies in citizen science
Oct 30 - Nov 3, 2017
Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS/ISRO), Dehradun, India
by Diwakar KC
Lalitpur, Nepal


The invention and use of technologies has increased rapidly over the last few decades,
which has changed the way to analyze geo information. With the advent of concept of
open data and open science, it is necessary to collaborate with general public in
scientific work in order to solve complex problems. Thus, citizen science aims to
involve public in scientific research and contribute to global investigations followed
by their solution. However, there are only few efforts, which has emphasized on
issues related to citizen science. Among such attempts are ISPRS’s summer school on
geo-processing tools and technologies in citizen science, which aimed to promote the
use of geo- processing tools to increase citizen’s participation and improve the quality of the collected data.
