  • ISPRS Hannover Workshop

    Institut für Photogrammetrie und GeoInformation, Leibniz Universität Hannover
    Leibniz Universität Hannover, Welfengarten 1, 30167 Hannover, Germany
    Sensor calibration, image orientation, object extraction and scene understanding from images and image sequences are important research topics in Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing, Computer Vision and Geoinformation Science. In these tasks, geometry and semantics both play an important role, and high quality results require proper handling of all these aspects. While individual algorithms differ according to the imaging geometry and the employed sensors and platforms, all mentioned aspects need to be integrated in a proper workflow to solve most real-world problems.This observation has led to launching a common event for a number of well-established scientific meetings under the roof of the ISPRS Hannover Workshop. While HRIGI and EuroCOW are more on the geometric side, CMRT and ISA have a legacy in automatic object reconstruction and trajectory computation.

    The global economy and security of many nations depends on assured and secure access to satellites that provide communications, timing and navigation services and remote sensing data. Space probes are also vital to our understanding of the solar system and the far universe.  The IAC2017 program addresses all of these topics and emphasises the important contribution that space makes to STEM education as well.Space is a fragile environment and satellites are easily damaged by space junk. Researchers and companies are working to reduce collision risks to acceptable levels to ensure that all of humanity can benefit from access to space and to space-based services.Australia hosts ground-based sensors and is investing in research to enable the space environment to be more carefully monitored and regulated. The global space industry is being transformed by:
    • the miniaturisation of electronics
    • lighter and tougher materials, and
    • advanced manufacturing processes.
    These innovative technologies will be showcased at IAC2017.
