ISPRS ICWG III/II

Planetary Remote Sensing and Mapping

ISPRS Inter-Commission Working Group “Planetary Remote Sensing and Mapping” aims to promote the development of new methodologies, algorithms, and applications related to remote sensing, photogrammetry, and mapping of extra-terrestrial planetary bodies. To this purpose, the group will organize workshops, symposiums, and other activities to exchange the latest developments in this field. Furthermore, the WG will promote international cooperation on cross-validation and integrated processing of remote sensing data from multiple planetary missions for science applications.
