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: Introduction and Capabilities of Google Earth Engine (GEE)

Welcome to the ISPRS Student Consortium Webinar Series! Starting this September 2018, we will be hosting a series of webinars and we're launching with a webinar entitled, Introduction and Capabilities of Google Earth Engine.  In the light of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which many countries have engaged and committed to deliver by 2030, there is a need to understand the available geospatial information and build expertise in different fields. The availability of Earth observation data spanning decades of imageries has provided the scientific community greater opportunities to understand global issues and to understand the many ways on how we can achieve sustainability. Google Earth Engine offers state-of-the-art technology for image processing and analysis on larger spatial and temporal scales. Nicholas Clinton from Google Earth Engine will be our host for this webinar, which will air on September 14, 2018, 5:00pm (UTC +3).

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.

Welcome Kingsly!!
