General Plan of Activities

Within the group

  • Regular communication between the officers – ideally every 2 months, more frequently in case of a need (such as an upcoming event to organise) – through teleconference facilities. Discussions will include debriefing on past activities and organisation of upcoming activities; tasks will be distributed among the officers and meeting minutes will be produced and shared.
  • Setup of a mailing list including all the ICWG members (including members who might later join the ICWG) for communication/information purposes. The mailing list may be also used to share news, resources and events relevant to the ICWG topics.


Within Technical Commission IV

  • Given its fully horizontal nature, the ICWG is keen on establishing a strong and solid relation with all the other WGs under ISPRS TC IV. Cross-fertilisation will be extremely useful e.g. to pick up relevant domain-specific use cases, datasets, software and applications from the WGs as well as to share and test with them the approaches and good practices developed within the ICWG activities. The role of TC IV officers will be crucial to make this cross-fertilisation possible.


Within other Technical Commissions

  • Given again its horizontal nature, the ICWG lies at the intersection between several ISPRS Technical Commissions and plans to establish and foster cooperation in particular with (in addition to TC IV Spatial Information Science):
    • Technical Commission III (Remote Sensing),
    • Technical Commission V (Education and Outreach), in particular WG V/8 Promotion of Open Source on Geospatial Technology.


Within ISPRS

  • Contribution to the mid-term ISPRS Technical Commission IV Symposium in 2024.
  • Contribution to the ISPRS Geospatial Weeks in 2023 and 2025.
  • Contribution to the ISPRS Congress in 2026.
  • Contribution to co-organise (under the ISPRS umbrella) events together with organisations external to ISPRS. For a complete list of potential partners, see the list in the following.
