WG I/7: Mobile Mapping Technology

Our Mission

ISPRS Working group I/7 aim is to co-ordinate the research and development activities that address future trends of Mobile Mapping Systems (MMS), new areas of MMS applications; and emerging intelligent processing techniques for MMS.

To this purpose, the WG will lead the organization of the Mobile Mapping Technologies Series which has been going for almost 22 years.

Furthermore, the WG provides (links to) publicly available datasets and organizes international comparative tests on the performance of algorithms for processing MMT for various emerging applications.

Finally, the WG will continue to work closely with WGs I/2 and III/2, and international organization that have activities related to MMS such as FIG and IAG.
