ICWG I/II: UAS & Small Multi-sensor Platforms: Concepts & Applications

Our Mission

This inter-commission working group on UAS & small multi-sensor platforms: concepts & applications aims at the progress and promotion of UAS applications in the Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing domains. The Working Group deals with the introduction of innovative UAS platforms as well as the development of sensors and their smart integration for geospatial data collection. The improvement of algorithms and software for the automated processing, analysis and assessment of UAS data are a fundamental part of the Working Group research mission too.

ICWG I/II will link the ISPRS community to other scientific and industrial domains involved in the use and development of UAS platforms and sensors, encouraging the technological and methodological transfer. The Working Group will promote the use of UAS for education in Academia and will organize events to further stimulate the scientific discussion on UAS.
