  • Links with Spatial Accuracy
  • Links with International Organizations and ISPRS Sister Organizations:
    • We aim organizing workshops, online courses, and webinars for international organizations and ISPRS Sister organizations on education and capacity building, promotion of webbased education and collaborative research and promotion of the profession to students and young scientists.
  • Links with the key standardization organizations active in the quality and interoperability domain:
    • ISO /TC211
    • European Committee for Standardization (CEN).
    • Working groups from the Association of Geographic Info. Laboratories in Europe(AGILE)
    • Working groups from ICA.
  • Collaboration with UNGGIM
  • Contribution to different Journals as reviewers and editorial board (such as ISPRS IJGI, Geo-Spatial Information Science (GSIS), International Journal of Applied Earth Observations and Geoinformation, Spatial Statistics, Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction (IJDRR), and Earth Observation and Geospatial Engineering (EOGE,









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.
