  • define what are Local, National and Regional stakeholders seem to find best to their interest for cooperation;
  • continue its effort on nurturing the young generation by organizing student-specific events and other actions that integrate youth into ISPRS more effectively;
  • disseminate new educational theories, methodologies and advanced technologies through new curricula designed by the Commission;
  • deal with the needs of students and professionals (engineers, technicians etc.) that crave for some updates on new and modern up-to-date systems and processing techniques.

 

WG V/2 disseminates educational content, develops novel educational components of training and education in photogrammetry and remote sensing, organizes joint workshops, symposium and prepares recommendations.
