The International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Student Consortium (ISPRS SC) is the official representation of the students and the youth to ISPRS.
The main purpose of the ISPRS SC is to link students, young researchers and professionals in different countries, who are interested in photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences. ISPRS SC also aims to provide a platform for exchange of information and to organize student-specific events and other activities that integrate students and the youth more effectively into ISPRS activities.
The ISPRS Geospatial Week (GSW) is a combination of workshops organised by about 30 ISPRS Working Groups active in areas of interest of ISPRS. It is convened by the University of Twente acting as local organiser, and led by George Vosselman as GSW Director. The ISPRS Geospatial Week is held biennially in odd years. The GSW 2019 is the fourth edition, after Antalya 2013, Montpellier 2015 and Wuhan 2017.
The ISPRS Geospatial Week’s general goals are to:
increase the possibility of communication between the different workshop communities within ISPRS and beyond;
increase the continuous visibility of ISPRS on a yearly basis, together with the Congress and the Commission Symposia, thus leading to larger impact for ISPRS activities;
gives Sustaining Members a more attractive opportunity to participate in ISPRS events.
The fourth edition of the GSW will take place from 10-14 June 2019 at University of Twente, Eschede, The Netherlands.
The ISPRS Geospatial Week 2019 will host several workshops among them;
C3M&GBD – Collaborative Crowdsourced Cloud Mapping and Geospatial Big Data
CHCGS – Cryosphere and Hydrosphere for Global Change Studies
EuroCow-M3DMaN – Joint European Calibration and Orientation Workshop and Workshop on Multi-sensor systems for 3D Mapping and Navigation
HyperMLPA – Hyperspectral Sensing meets Machine Learning and Pattern Analysis
And many others. For more information on submission of abstracts, travel grants and deadlines visit: https://www.gsw2019.org/
ISPRS Technical Commission III WG III/2, 10 Joint Workshop
Recently, an increasing frequency of extreme climatic events has been observed. Hence there is concern that the impacts of global environmental change is increasing. It is reported that extreme weather such as strong typhoon, hurricanes, torrential rain, droughts and heat waves are taking places at various places in the world. These extreme weather caused by climate change are affecting to not only natural environment but also human environment. on this note, the ISPRS Technical Commission III WG III/2 is organisimg a workshop under the theme " Multidisciplinary Remote Sensing for Environmental Monitoring." The workshop will take place in the beautiful city of Kyoto, Japan from 12th-14th March, 2019 at the Kyoto University's Clock Tower Centennial Hall. Deadline of camera ready paper submission is 25th December, 2018.
The topics to be ahndled during the workshop include but not limited to:
Microwave Remote Sensing (WG III/2)
Agriculture and Natural Ecosystems Modelling and Monitoring (WG III/10)
Landuse and Landcover Monitoring
Civil Infrastructure Monitoring

SCGI Master Program on Geo-Informatics
Applications are welcome for the SCGI Master Program – An International graduate in science program offering a Double Master Degree in Geo-Informatics by Wuhan University, Burapha University, and GISTDA. This program will provide students with advanced knowledge and technical skills in geo-informatics technologies that will be vital for your professional career.
Graduates from SCGI Master Program, will gain in-depth knowledge, ability and leadership to leverage experience in the field of Geo-Informatics and related technology. Such experience can be used to solve problems and disaster prevention and mitigation. A double degree can open more doors for your professional career with recognition in more countries. Wuhan University has cultivated professional talents in various occupations. GISTDA is a pioneer in developing applications and solutions for both public and private sectors. With their support, the program shall offer you the opportunities of an international internship / exchange program / study trips that will be a passport to pursue a successful career in top international organizations.

Applications are called for those with ideas more so members of ISPRS SC that belong to any of the working groups in ISPRS. Deadline for sending in applications is 1st November 2018. Read more here..
New ISPRS SC Board Member - Kingsly Jeba Ashish From India
ISPRS SC and ISPRS thanks all those who applied for the post of board and urges you to continue participating in its activities. After a very rigorous process, Kingsly Jeba Ashish from India was selected to fill the post of board member of ISPRS SC.
Kingsly holds a B.Tech in computer science from the Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology, and Sciences in Allahabad (India). He is currently a graduate student pursuing his M.Tech in Remote Sensing and GIS from the same university. He first got introduced to ISPRS SC at the ACRS 2017 conference held in New Delhi and the summer school in Dehrahdun, where he enjoyed the student activities and networking opportunities the ISPRS SC had to offer. He plans on using his passion for geospatial sciences to help promote the specialization and connect students with valuable resources. He will serve the ISPRS SC from 2018 to 2020.

This summer school is a collaborative program among the ISPRS, ISPRS SC, Geoscience & Digital Earth Centre (INSTeG), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia that aims to build the capacities of students and young researchers in the field of remote sensing, photogrammetry and geospatial information sciences.
The ISPRS SC’s first webinar is an introduction to one of the many platforms available to the scientific community today – Google Earth Engine. Google Earth Engine is “a platform for petabyte-scale scientific analysis and visualization of geospatial datasets, both for public benefit and for business and government users.” It utilizes Google’s massive computational capabilities, giving developers, storytellers, scientists and explorers a bigger chance to understand this planet we live in, and yes, to get creative!
