ISPRS WG II/8
Data Acquisition and Processing in Cultural Heritage
ISPRS Working Group II/8 aims to promote the integration of data and measurement techniques supporting metric, remote sensing, and monitoring survey requirements for archaeological, architectural, urban and natural landscape, conservation, restoration and archiving communities.
To facilitate these aims the WG participates within and/or organizes workshops to exchange the latest developments in metric and remote sensing documentation of cultural heritage assets.
Furthermore the WG provides best practice protocols and the promotion of low-cost, rapid, innovative, automated, commercial and open-source approaches for documentation, metric and remote sensing survey of heritage assets.
Finally, the WG will continue to work closely with related disciplines, national/international groups (e.g. CIPA) and other ISPRS working groups.
