Welcome to the ISPRS Student Consortium!


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 SC Webinar Series - Collaborative Humanitarian Mapping with PoliMappers and UN Mappers

The webinar consists in two parts:

  • a “theoretical” part with an introduction to the Collaborative Humanitarian Mapping and OpenStreetMap, the ecosystem that can be used for this purpose, to PoliMappers, the Association of Mappers of Politecnico di Milano and to UN Mappers, the community of UN Mappers;
  • a “practical” part with a mapathon (map marathon) where we will map together for one of the United Nations Mappers projects. During the mapping activity, participants will learn how to edit data on OpenStreetMap and provide geospatial support to UN Peacekeeping missions. The activity will involve the mapping of the road network in African countries following a step-by-step approach. Please, ensure to have a mouse and good Internet connection.

Aim of the webinar is to learn how we can contribute individually or as a team of students to the Collaborative Humanitarian Mapping process.

Date and time: 16 September 2021, 2:15-4:15 pm CEST

IEEE GRSS Young Professionals (YP) & ISPRS Student Consortium (SC) Summer School (SS)

The IEEE GRSS Young Professionals (YP) & ISPRS Student Consortium (SC) Summer School (SS) are events organized jointly in Brazil and supported by the two main international organizations in the field of remote sensing:

  • IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society: is a non-profit society, and its area of interest is the theory, concepts, and scientific and engineering techniques applied to Remote Sensing of the Earth, ocean, atmosphere, and space. In addition, it is interested in the processing, interpretation, and dissemination of this spatial information.
  • International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing: is a non-governmental organization that aims to develop international cooperation for the advancement of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing and its applications

Earth Engine @SG on September 13, 2021

Google Earth Engine (EE) is a powerful cloud-based platform used to process remotely sensed satellite imagery and conduct large-scale land cover mapping on the fly. The applications of EE are numerous and cover a range of topics such as urban expansion, deforestation, and mapping of hazards, just to name a few. The user community in Singapore has grown over time and we would like to bring the community together through a one-day virtual symposium.

We are excited to host EarthEngine@SG during the SG Geospatial Festival and allow this event to be a platform for connecting with users of EE from academia, the industry as well as public sectors, and non-governmental organizations.

The one-day virtual event includes a keynote talk, parallel talks on different topics, a networking breakout session, and hands-on EE workshops.

This would be followed up by another event in March 2022, which is tentatively scheduled to be an in-person event. We would offer the opportunity to users to present lightning talks about their work using EE as well as networking opportunities for future collaborations among participants.
