ISPRS Launches New Open Access Journal

by Charles Toth

The ISPRS Council is pleased to announce the introduction of a new Golden Open Access journal, the ISPRS Open Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (IOJPRS), starting on January 1, 2021 and published by Elsevier. As an independent third journal of ISPRS, IOJPRS will offer additional possibilities for authors to publish their latest results in a high-quality peer reviewed scientific outlet under the umbrella of ISPRS.

The decision to start this new journal followed a careful assessment of its pros and cons over the past 18 months. The most important point was the global development in the direction of open science in general and open access in particular, reflected e.g. in new regulations and initiatives within the European Union such as the so called Plan S. Equally important, the two existing ISPRS journals have been experiencing a rapid increase in the number of submissions and published papers, demonstrating the growth of our field; the two Editor-in-Chiefs of the highly-ranked ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (IJPRS) currently work with 19 Associate Editors to handle 1,500+ submissions a year, while the open access ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (IJ-GI) has been publishing up to 100 articles per month as it approaches its 10th year of existence.  The ISPRS Council, in cooperation with all journal Editors-in-Chiefs and Elsevier, conducted a survey to seek the opinion of the community at large and analyzed the findings before reaching the conclusion that the benefits of adding a new Golden Open Access journal would be significant.

The ISPRS Council is delighted to share the news with our community that George Vosselman, PhD, former Editor-in-Chief of IJPRS, has accepted our offer to serve as the first Editor-in-Chief of the new ISPRS Open Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.

George Vosselman is professor in Geo-Information Extraction with Sensor Systems at the University of Twente, the Netherlands. After graduating in Geodetic Engineering from the Delft University of Technology in 1986, he worked at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, until 1992. In 1991, he obtained his PhD degree with honours from the University of Bonn, Germany. He was appointed professor of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing at the Delft University of Technology in 1993. In 2004 he joined ITC, now a faculty of the University of Twente.

George has been instrumental in adapting ISPRS to the rise of laser scanning, including roles as WG chair (2000-2004) on reconstruction from airborne LiDAR and InSAR, WG co-chair (2008-2012) on point processing, and editor of a well-known standard book (with Hans-Gerd Maas). Moreover, he has made a massive contribution to scientific standards, quality control, and reviewing: he was editor-in-chief of the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (2004-2012), a member of the International Science Advisory Committee (ISAC), and chair of the International Program Committee for the ISPRS Congress 2016. He has over 250 publications to his name, many of which have been cited numerous times. He was also the Director of the very successful ISPRS Geospatial Week, organised in Enschede in 2019.

Advanced Notice of Opening of The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) Travel Grant Applications

The ISPRS Foundation expects to open applications on the TIF web site by 1 February 2021, for travel grants to attend the postponed ISPRS Congress in Nice France, scheduled for 4-10 July 2021. 

Please review the significant dates on the ISPRS Congress web site.


Sisi Zlatanova
  Sandra Maria Fonseca da Costa


New Members of the TIF Fund-Raising Committee

The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) is pleased to announce that Prof. Dr. Sisi Zlatanova, University of New South Wales, Australia, and Prof. Dr. Sandra Maria Fonseca da Costa, adjunct professor at the University of Vale do Paraíba (UNIVAP) in São José dos Campos, Brazil, have joined the Fund-Raising Committee. Dr. Fonseca da Costa has recently joined TIF’s Board of Trustees. Dr. Zlatanova is well known in ISPRS and currently serves as the President of Technical Commission IV, Spatial Information Science.

Sisi Zlatanova will represent the Committee in the region of Australia and New Zealand. Sandra Maria Fonseca da Costa will represent the Committee in Latin America. Thus, the Committee is now well posed in Australia, New Zealand and Latin America as well as Europe.

The current membership of the Committee is:

Michael Gruber (chair) Austria TIF Trustee
Ron Bisio USA TIF Trustee
Sandra Maria Fonseca da Costa Brazil TIF Trustee
Lawrie Jordan USA TIF Trustee
Paul Marshall UK  
Fabio Menna Italy  
Marko Pasko Slovak Republic  
Miguel Pelaz Spain  
Sisi Zlatanova Australia ISPRS TC IV President


The Committee is now working on the next phase, to identify points of contact and attract possible donors. This will enable TIF to support more young researchers to contribute to the conferences of the coming year and beyond by awarding more travel grants and to stimulate youth and public interest and participation in the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences, technologies, and applications. The Committee is still open to welcome new members to pursue the worthwhile goal of expanding TIF’s activities. If you are interested – or know someone who may be interested – please contact Michael Gruber at Thank you.

For more information about the Fund-Raising Committee (including Terms of Reference) please follow the link


Qihao Weng


New Member of the TIF Audit Committee

TIF’s Audit Committee is perhaps less well known that its other committees, though it has its own web page, Its terms of reference are quite extensive, but its most important role by far is the annual review of the TIF accounts prepared by TIF Finance Officer Marguerite Madden. TIF is delighted that a new member has joined the Audit Committee, Prof. Dr. Qihao Weng, professor of geography, Indiana State University, USA. Qihao will join Laurent Polidori (France) and John Trinder (Australia) in supporting the Audit Committee chair, Shailesh Nayak (India). Welcome, Qihao.
