WG II/7: Vision Metrology

Our Mission

ISPRS Working Group II/7 aims to establish and promote best practice in vision metrology, validation methods and freeform engineering surface measurement systems.

The Working Group research interests deals with industrial, engineering and medical systems and their application where accuracy, performance evaluation, standards, calibration and integration with state-of-the-art computer models and simulations feature strongly. Examples of applications of interest include structural deformation analysis, robot control, comparison between as-built and designed, best practice and traceability.

To this purpose, the WG will organize workshops, and collaborate and coordinate with conferences such as the bi-annual SPIE Videometrics, the Coordinate Metrology Society Conference and the new 3D Metrology Conference, in order to exchange the latest developments on vision metrology.

The WG will also liaise with academics, standards institutes, users and manufacturers working in the metrology domain to promote the appropriate and effective use of photogrammetric solutions.
