What does ISPRS mean?
- The International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing is an international non-governmental organization that enhances international cooperation between the worldwide organizations with interests in the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences. Established in 1910, ISPRS is the oldest international umbrella organization in its field, which may be summarized as addressing “information from imagery”. ISPRS achieves its aims by: Advancing knowledge in the areas of interest of ISPRS by encouraging and facilitating research and development, scientific networking and inter-disciplinary activities Facilitating education and training with particular emphasis in less developed countries Enhancing public recognition of the contributions of the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences for the benefit of humankind and the sustainability of the environment The ISPRS scientific and technical programs are organized by eight Technical Commissions. Each Commission is sponsored by an ISPRS member organization for the four-year period between Congresses. The eight Technical Commissions have established more than 60 Working Groups which are responsible for particular topics within the Commissions’ areas of responsibility. All Technical Commissions hold a Symposium within their country in 2014. Smaller workshops will be organized by the Working Groups before the 2016 Congress is organised from July 12 - 19, 2016 in Prague, Czech Republic, by the Czech Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.
