Terms of Reference

Considering the state of the art in Spatial Information Science and the ISPRS TC IV 2012-2016 resolution, we define the following ToF:

  • Strengthen the work on multidimensional spatial model and representations towards seamless data fusion (WG1)
  • Advance the semantic modelling, development and linking of ontologies (WG2)
  • Intensify the research data interpretation, quality and uncertainty modeling (WG3)
  • Strengthen the research on crowdsourced data and public participation, towards community-driven and participatory applications, collaborative mapping and use/usability of maps (WG 4)
  • Stringent the research on seamless indoor/outdoor location-based services, navigation and tracking, and analysis of human movement (WG5)
  • Advance interoperable Internet of Things, Sensor web, SDI and linked data (WG6)
  • Advance the research on spatial data types, indexing methods and analysis to further contribute to development of spatial DBMS for management and analysis of multi-dimensional data (WG7)
  • Encourage the use of functional programming and streaming algorithms in development of demos and applications as well as parallel and distributed processing paradigms. (WG8)
  • Advance visual analytics, online multi-dimensional visualization on mobile and desktop devices, considering human-centered applications, privacy and security issues (WG9)
  • Advance knowledge on use of spatial information (BIM/GIS) for urban modelling (WG10)


The International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing is a non-governmental organization devoted to the development of international cooperation for the advancement of photogrammetry and remote sensing and their applications.
