The biennial event Photogrammetric Week (PhoWo) was initiated by Carl Pulfrich as a “vacation course in photogrammetry” in 1909; since 1973 it has been held at the University of Stuttgart. Over the years remote sensing and geoinformatics together with photogrammetry have become the major subject areas of this conference. Today, the Photogrammetric Week enjoys international recognition as an upgrading seminar and a platform for the exchange of experience. And the new organizer is as well committed to continue the successful history of this event.
The lectures will focus on trends and achievements of the following topics:
- Sensors and Data Acquisition
- Photogrammetry, Computer Vision and Remote Sensing
The presentations will be in English. Sufficient time will be allocated for discussions.
The program will be supplemented with demonstrations and comments on practical examples in the afternoons. The fringe events will offer sufficient opportunity for personal contacts.
In addition, a tutorial on “Remote Sensing – From Basics to advanced Methods” will be held by the Institute for Photogrammetry (ifp) on Sunday afternoon, September 10, 2017. The fundamentals of optical and radar image sensors (SAR) are highlighted and we will emphasize on SAR interferometry and modern methods for land cover classification.
