ISPRS WG I/8

Satellite Constellations for Remote Sensing

Our Mission

ISPRS Working group I/8 aims to promote the development of new methodologies, algorithms and applications related to high resolution images acquired from Satellite constellations also in comparison to monolithic satellite systems.

To this purpose, the WG organizes workshops to exchange the latest developments regarding satellite constellations and their applications.

Furthermore the WG provides (links to) publicly available datasets and organizes international benchmark test data from satellite constellations to promote the research, development and novel applications.

Finally, the WG will establish links within Commission I and relevant WGs within Commission III and IV.
