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.

 


 

Webinar: Earth Observation and Digital Transformation: an outlook from Infrastructure Engineering | December 7, 2022

In this webinar talk, Dr. Jagannath Aryal from the Department of Infrastructure Engineering at the University of Melbourne will talk about the development of earth observation data and platforms, the practices, and their wider applications with a focus on digital infrastructure engineering. This presentation covers how digitalization revolutionized the way we live and design our cities from a digital infrastructure engineering perspective. It presents case studies illustrating how techniques for accurate and precise data capture, object recognition, and interpretation are used in digital city design to integrate new information into the city's digital models. 

Also, there will be a discussion on the importance of digital protection and knowledge transformation capture in improving the future of the cities and our lives. This talk summarizes the above-mentioned points providing an outlook on digitalization from the infrastructure engineering perspective.

Date and time: December 7, 2022 8:00-9:00  (GMT +0)

October 2022 GeoMixer event

The October 2022 GeoMixer event is an opportunity to network with other members of the Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry and Geospatial communities at all career stages & from around the world!

This event is a special GeoMixer for the attendees of the 43rd Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS 2022), organized by the Asian Association on Remote Sensing (AARS) and the local organizing committee from Mongolia in cooperation with the Ladies of Landsat, Sisters of SAR and the ISPRS Student Consortium. We also welcome other participants who are not participating in the conference in this GeoMixer!
This virtual mixer will support networking with other participants that you may not have otherwise met by assigning participants into a series of small breakout rooms in Zoom. This event is inspired by IALE-NA 2020's Student Mixer and our successful first GeoMixer event at Geo for Good 2020.

SUNRISE Summer School | 3-9 September 2022, Ragusa - Sicily - Italy |

The SUNRISE summer school will be carried out in cooperation between ISPRS and SIFET (Italian Society of Photogrammetry and Topography) and will involve international students and professional surveyors with different backgrounds (e.g., archaeologists, architects, engineers, etc.) for the documentation of the archaeological site and the surrounding environment with several geomatics techniques.

The main objective is to provide the participants with a general overview of the state of the art of different geomatics techniques that can be used for the documentation of both the Cultural Heritage (emerged and submerged) and the environment in which it is located, constituting the coastal heritage.

For more details and registration, please follow this link.

Application Deadline: 23rd July 2022
