ISPRS Workshop Laser Scanning 2019

part of the

ISPRS Geospatial Week 2019

12-13 Jun, 2019

Enschede, The Netherlands


Laser scanning 2019 is the 11th of a series of ISPRS workshops covering various aspects of space borne, airborne, mobile and terrestrial laser scanning in both indoor and outdoor environments. The workshop brings together experts who focus on processing and using point cloud data acquired from laser scanners and other active 3D imaging systems, such as range cameras and gaming sensors including terrestrial, mobile, aerial, unmanned-aerial and space-borne sensing platforms. Topics include all aspects related to sensor calibration, data acquisition and data processing including notably registration, feature extraction, object detection, big data processing, 3D modelling, BIM and change analysis. The workshop will be part of the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2019 and is hosted by the University of Twente in parallel with a number of related geospatial workshops. The event will be held as a two-day single track workshop of oral presentations and poster sessions.
