Official ISPRS WeChat Account

ISPRS Council is pleased to announce that with the support of our Ordinary Member, CSGPC (Chinese Society for Geodesy, Photogrammetry & Cartography), we now have an official ISPRS WeChat account which was released last month. An introduction to ISPRS has been published (translated into Chinese), along with the Gi4DM workshop announcement, and further events planned for 2023, and will be followed by the introduction of the new TCs and WGs.

WeChat has 1.2 billion users, the 3rd largest number in the world (the 1st is Facebook), and almost every Chinese uses it for communication.  

We are sure the account will transfer more ISPRS information to Chinese scientists, researchers and industry, and thus, attract more participants and activities.

Our thanks go to our Chinese colleagues for their assistance.


New ISPRS Members

In the past six months, ISPRS has had changes to two Ordinary Members. SELPER Capítulo Brasil (Sociedad Latinoamericana en Percepción Remota y Sistemas de Información Espacial) took over the Brazilian membership from Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE) following the cancellation by the latter, and the Federal Geographic Information Center (FGIC) took over the national representation for the United Arab Emirates from Remote Sensing Center of the UAE University.

Council is also very pleased to introduce our new Sustaining Member, China International Geo-Information Co. Ltd. (CIGIC) to the community. More information can be found at

Geocarto Announces new Finding about the Use of NDVI

Geocarto International Centre Limited has been a Sustaining Member of ISPRS since 1996. Geocarto began research on monitoring individual tree health using high-resolution WorldView-2/3 satellite data in 2015 and now have a new finding about the use of NDVI to assess the internal health of an individual tree.

From their global case studies of removed and collapsed stressed trees, they have found the following results:
(1) NDVI works when the spectral reflectance in both NIR and red bands deteriorate together/concurrently.
(2) NDVI does not work when the spectral reflectance in NIR and red bands vary. This will happen, as shown by their case studies of Tree 1 and Tree 2 of the removed stressed trees, and Tree 4 and Tree 5 of the collapsed stressed trees.

K.N.Au, from Geocarto announces: “NDVI has been widely used to monitor crops. But it is not appropriate for monitoring an individual tree, because the results may be incorrect as revealed by our case studies. Many remote sensing scientists are not aware of this finding, so NDVI may still be used to assess an individual tree. I should be grateful if this new finding could be published in the eBulletin or other ISPRS publications, so that remote sensing scientists will be aware of this new finding. Many thanks and best regards.”

3rd International Workshop Point Cloud Processing

26-27 January 2023
Stuttgart, Germany

The quality of area-covering 3D point clouds as captured by aerial and mobile mapping platforms still experiences a considerable boost due to the ongoing advancements in lidar technology and multi-view-stereo-matching (MVS). In addition to further enhancement of the respective accuracy, density and reliability, the semantic segmentation of these point clouds comes more and more into focus. Also triggered by the astonishing improvements in the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning, automatic interpretation of area-covering point clouds including tasks like object detection and classification or object-dependent filtering and smoothing is moving rapidly to a mature state. In view of these developments, the meeting brings together experts from industry, academia and national mapping agencies to present and discuss the processing and evaluation of point clouds, focusing on mapping purposes.

Themes of the event include

  •     Hardware developments
  •     Acquisition of point cloud data and its visualization
  •     Intelligent generation of training data
  •     Multi-Modal data processing of LiDAR data and imagery
  •     Semantic segmentation and classification
  •     Applications and use-cases from practice
