ISPRS WG I/9

Integrated Sensor Orientation, Calibration, Navigation and Mapping

Our Mission

ISPRS Working group I/9 deals with a fundamental task in photogrammetry and remote sensing: sensor orientation, both in real-time and off-line on manned or unmanned airborne, ship born and terrestrial platforms. This involves modeling and estimation techniques to determine platform and sensor position, attitude and its derivatives from various, usually redundant or at least partially redundant navigation and/or optical sensors at the highest possible accuracy.

To this purpose, through workshops, including the bi-annual European Calibration and Orientation Workshop (EuroCOW), and cooperation with other WGs in the period from 2016-2020, the WG will promote the investigation and evaluation of new approaches to integrate inertial, GNSS, visual, ranging and any other type of measurements thus levering in a synergistic way recent results in the fields of geodesy, photogrammetry,
navigation, computer vision and robotics.
