24–27 September 2017 18th International Conference “From imagery to digital reality: ERS & Photogrammetry”. We have something to be proud of. </br>See you in Crete!

Crete, Greece

Conference topics:

Earth Remote Sensing (ERS) — from imagery to analytics

Analytics of ERS data is one of the most demanded services in geoindustry. Huge amounts of data—accumulated by space survey operators by now—are becoming ever more accessible for end consumers.

There is active development of “from raw imagery to spatial information” services. This section is called upon to answer questions about how services based on technologies of receiving and processing ERS data will be developed, how the approach of space imagery operators will change, how convenient the forms of work with space information will be, and how much it will be in demand by the market.

Methods and technologies of spatial data acquisition — from rivalry to synergy

The last years were marked by the use of multi-agent systems as technological platforms of spatial data acquisition. Technological schemes—“space-airborne-UAV” and “scanner-optics-lidar”—have become widely used in the solution of various production tasks when it is necessary to receive information in strictly scheduled terms. Combining and optimizing spatial data acquisition technologies is the main issue of the section.

Photogrammetry — from algorithms to products

Photogrammetry in the world technological trend is the key issue of the section, where development and future of the scientific and technical discipline—known for more than one hundred years—will be discussed. Methods of photogrammetry have provided the world with the products without which it would be impossible to imagine our daily lives: first of all, precise maps. What methods, products, and services will photogrammetry offer tomorrow? Which technologies will be determinant for our industry in the coming years: artificial intellect, machine learning, or cloud technologies?

Innovations in cartography

Difficult tasks face cartography: to meet all the needs in classical products and not be late for innovative challenges. Despite active development of virtual and additional reality technologies, projection of “smart” cities, BIM, and tasks of topographic support of territorial development still face cartography. The main issue of the section is the combination of innovative requests of society and solutions for everyday tasks.

From idea to worldwide recognition – Racurs celebrates twenty-five-year

This year the history of Racurs — the one and only organizer of the conference — will cross the twenty-five-year milestone. At this section we will speak about the history of Racurs and PHOTOMOD, how developers and users gained experience, where the technologies of PHOTOMOD family move. We have something to be proud of.

18–22 June 2018 GEOBIA 2018

Montpellier, France

GEOBIA in a Changing World

From pixels to ecosystems and global sustainability

Our Planet is dramatically changing… and in response, Humanity is facing global challenges of such magnitude that world-wide cooperation is essential to preserve our shared natural and human resources. To succeed, we need an improved planetary understanding and implementation of strategies at both global and local scales. While, remote sensing technologies bring tremendous capacities with potential to manage the future and understand the past, relevant multi-scale geographic information methods are needed to generate timely knowledge from these BIG data sources.

Key to this success is the emerging geospatial discipline of Geographic Object Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA). Now in its 7th Biennial International Conference, we extend a world-wide invitation to scientists, professionals and users from academia, industry, the public sector and government to share your insight and solutions at GEOBIA 2018 in Montpellier, France. Our goal is to deepen our knowledge, develop new theories, and implement operational strategies to better understand our changing world from pixels, to ecosystems and global sustainability.

Keywords: GEOBIA, geospatial, global change, open-source, multi-scale, semantic and knowledge integration, computer vision, algorithm development, machine learning, ontologies, BIG data

13–16 December 2012 The 8th International Conference on Geo-information for Disaster Management

Enschede, The Netherlands

Disasters of natural and technological origin have caused enormous socioeconomic losses and millions of victims in the past years. Hazard prediction and risk mitigation need improvements through research and developments to curb damages and protect lives. A good cooperation and coordination of crisis response operations are of critical importance to react rapidly and adequately to any crisis situation. Technology progress to support crisis response has advanced greatly in the last few years. System for early warning, command and control, decision-making have been successfully implemented in many countries and regions all over the world. However, many aspects related to efficient collection and integration of geo-information, applied semantics and situation awareness for disaster management are still open. To advance the systems and make them intelligent, an extensive collaboration is required between emergency responders, disaster managers, system designers and researchers.

Join the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) for the 2013 Annual Conference as we return to Baltimore, Maryland, March 24 - 28, 2013. The conference theme: Confluence by the Bay - A Gathering of Geospatial Insights, refers to the "coming together" of researchers and practitioners for the purpose of open dialogue with respect to the most recent advances in geospatial analysis. The term "confluence" also has meaning in the assessment of the three earth's spheres (hydrologic, terrestrial, and atmospheric) via remote sensing; very apropos for our confernece location on the eastern seaboard of the United States.
