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.
ISPRS WG IV/1, WG V/5, Student Consortium Summer School, Poland
It is our great pleasure to invite students and young researchers to attend the ISPRS Summer School at Wroclaw University of Science and Technology in Poland. The event will be organised jointly by Wroclaw University of Science and Technology , Forest Research Institute and ISPRS, in particular by two ISPRS working groups IV/1 and V/5 with support of Student Consortium.
During the ISPRS Summer School young researchers will be able to extend their knowledge in the field of geospatial technologies and learn about advancements in the field of natural environment management and monitoring. Workshops and educational trips will be focused on environmental issues related to industrial activities, such as mining, as well as forestry and preservation of natural resources. It is a great place to discuss their work and ideas. It is also an excellent opportunity to meet people from all over the world, who share a passion for research.
The summer school will take place on August 26-30th 2019.
The ISPRS SC board would like to thank all the applicants for the Newsletter Editor-in-Chief and Board Member positions. After a careful evaluation of the applications, we have selected the individuals to fill in the positions until the next ISPRS Congress in 2020. Meet our new Newsletter Editor-in-Chief and Board Member! Welcome, Charmaine and Sona!
Charmaine holds a Master of Science in Geomatics Engineering, specializing in remote sensing applications, from the University of Philippines, Diliman. She currently works as a Senior Science Research Specialist in the Training Center for Applied Geodesy and Photogrammetry of the University of Philippines.
Charmaine is interested in meeting young professionals and students in the field of geomatics around the world. She has extensive experience in research and project management, which makes her a great team player. She aims to contribute to the ISPRS SC in sharing and disseminating relevant news and articles in remote sensing and geospatial information, which can help encourage the members to actively participate in the organization.
Sona Guliyeva (Azerbaijan) – Board Member
Sona Guliyeva has a Master of Science in Environmental Engineering from the National Aviation Academy of Azerbaijan, with a focus in Aerospace Monitoring. She is currently pursuing her doctorate in the field of Remote Aerospace Studies from the same academy.
Sona is very passionate about photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information science. With her country’s continued efforts on the developments and applications of space technology, she believes that her engagement in the ISPRS SC will help in increasing awareness about remote sensing, further educating the youth in the profession and in supporting the scientific community.
Many thanks again to all the applicants! We are hoping for your continued support and engagement with the ISPRS SC!
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/

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.
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.
