  • From Imagery to Reality: ERS & Photogrammetry

    Ramada Resort Hadera
    Menachem Begin Blvd, Hadera, Israel
    The geographical map is one of the major advancements that man has developed over thousands of years. We have come a long way from Ptolemy’s maps to have our modern-day, precise, digital maps. Over time, scientists have created and developed many ways of obtaining spatial information.More than 150 years have passed since the day French inventor Gaspard-Félix Tournachon took a photograph of Paris from an air balloon. This photograph started the phenomenon of remote sensing, which rapidly developed in the twentieth century and has continued to evolve in the twenty-first century.The appearance of the Earth’s satellite imagery, new technologies of aerial survey, laser scanning, and the use of digital methods of data collecting and processing in real time have significantly changed our attitude to spatial information.These advancements, in turn, have led us to understand the necessity of development and to bring the annual conference, “From imagery to map: digital photogrammetric technologies,” to a new level.This year, the name of the annual conference was changed to “FROM IMAGERY TO DIGITAL REALITY: ERS & Photogrammetry” in order to reflect current trends in visualisation and use of spatial information.Digital reality is measured spatial information that is used in almost all directions of society's technological developments, be it land management, navigation, autonomous transport systems, smart cities, robotic technologies, and much more. Digital reality provides cartographic basis for the Internet of Things, and it allows building space-time models for sustainable development of society.This new conference name significantly widens the theme of the conference. The organisers, Racurs Co. and The Israeli Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, believe the event will contribute to the growth of interest in Earth remote sensing and photogrammetry technologies, attracting new participants to the conference.
