ISPRS WG II/1

Image Orientation

Our Mission

ISPRS Working group II/1 aims to promote the development of new methodologies, algorithms, and applications related to image orientation in particular by fostering the cooperation between photogrammetry, computer vision, and robotics. State-of-the-art methods are to be tested with respect to general applicability, reliability, and performance, showing current limitations and potentially leading to further refinement and robustification. WG II/1 will therefore provide various synthetic and real test data sets for image calibration/orientation. We will invite researchers to evaluate their algorithms against known ground truth data with respect to general applicability and robustness.

Terms of Reference

  • Orientation of non-conventional image sources, i.e. oblique images, cameras with rolling shutter, crowd-sourced images
  • Feature extraction and stereo/multi-view sparse matching
  • Image alignment and applications such as mosaicking, denoising, deblurring, super resolution, etc.
  • Direct and indirect geo-referencing
  • Intrinsic/extrinsic camera calibration including methods based on single images, online approaches, or handling ambiguous and degenerate configurations
  • Structure from Motion and SLAM
  • Geometric/algebraic computer vision, multi-image geometry, and modern approaches to Bundle Adjustment, e.g. large-scale or structureless BA
  • Evaluation of performance, reliability, robustness and generality of methods
