ISPRS Workshop Laser scanning 2005
Enschede, September 12-14, 2005
110 colleagues from 18 countries participated in the workshop. 10 companies presented their latest developments in a small exhibition. A report on the workshop will appear in the December issue of the ISPRS Highlights.
Both airborne and terrestrial laser scanning (or lidar) are now well established methods for the acquisition of precise and reliable 3D geo-information. Beyond the primary tasks in digital terrain model generation, airborne laser scanning has also proven to be a very suitable tool for general 3D modelling tasks and landscape analysis. At the same time, terrestrial laser scanning is successfully used to acquire highly detailed surface models of objects like building facades, statues, industrial installations. Despite large differences in resolution and accuracy between airborne and terrestrial laser scanner data, the research problems like automatic registration, feature extraction, and 3D modelling are very similar.
The workshop, held at the ITC in Enschede, brought together an interdisciplinary group of researchers, system developers, data providers and end users. They discussed and demonstrated recent developments in laser scanner data processing, the potential of the technique and future trends in sensorics and data processing.
All papers in the workshop programme have been selected on the bases of a double-blind review process of full papers.
Several companies presented their latest developments in a small exhibition. The present companies were Fugro-Inpark (FLI-MAP division), MilanFlug, Riegl, Terra digital, TerraImaging, TerraSolid, TopoSys, TopScan, Trimble/GeoMETIUS and Zoller+Fröhlich.
