WG V/8: Promotion of Open Source on Geospatial Technology

Our Mission

ISPRS Working Group V/8 aims to promote open source and the development of free software on geospatial technologies, mainly in the fields of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and GIS. To facilitate this, the WG organizes joint sessions, tutorials and webinars to promote and exchange the experiences of open source development. The WG will collaborate closely with OSGeo (http://www.osgeo.org/) and other ISPRS working groups, and will cooperate with other local and international groups to promote and contribute to open source. The promotion of open source can provide us free software and make accessible the latest geospatial technologies to the wider ISPRS community.
