Intelligent Systems in Sensor Web and IoT

Our Mission

ISPRS WG IV/7 aims to promote the advancement of and international collaboration on open standards, methods, algorithms, and systems related to sensor web, internet of things (IoT), crowdsourcing, and intelligent systems to support human decision and planning, facilitate knowledge-aware digital twins, and improve governance of smart cities. In addition, we will consider aspects beyond technologies, i.e., social and organizational issues related to the real-time use and citizen trustiness of data obtained from sensors, IoT devices, and crowdsourcing. We will work on organizing workshops, publishing special journal issues, and developing benchmarking cases, and collaborating with other related international entities.
