ISPRS WG I/2

LiDAR, Air- and Spaceborne Optical Sensing

Our Mission

ISPRS Working Group I/2 aims is to promote the developments and investigations on the state-of-the-art airborne and spaceborne remote sensing systems mainly using LiDAR and optical sensors. The focus will be placed on data quality and performance validation of LiDAR and optical sensing systems for digital surface modelling and 3D feature reconstruction.

To this purpose, the WG I/2 will organize technical events, provide publicly available dataset, and organize international comparative tests on the performance of algorithms designs for various airborne and spaceborne LiDAR and optical data processing towards emerging applications. In addition, the WG I/2 will continue to work closely with WG I/6, WG I/7, related WGs of TCs II and III as well as sister organizations such as ICA, IAG, IEEE, and FIG.
