Photogrammetric Week


55th Photogrammetric Week in Stuttgart

This regular event was initiated by Carl Pulfrich as a “vacation course in photogrammetry” in 1909; since 1973 it has been held at the University of Stuttgart. Today, the Photogrammetric Week enjoys international recognition as an upgrading seminar and a platform for the exchange of experience.

Since 1992 this event has continuously been further developed and driven to excellence under the auspices of Professor Dieter Fritsch. As he will retire by the end of September 2015 this will be his “Farewell PhoWo”.

The lectures by experts from Germany and abroad will be focused on the following topics:

  • Remotely Sensed Data Acquisition – An Update
  • Advanced Modelling in Photogrammetry, Computer Vision and Computer Graphics
  • Excellence in Geoinformatics

4D Reconstruction of the Past

RSCy : First International Conference on Remote Sensing and Geoinformation of Environment

One of the main characteristics of the Internet era we are living in, is the free and online availability of a huge amount of data. This data is of varied reliability and accuracy and exists in various forms and formats. Often, it is cross-referenced and linked to other data, forming a nexus of text, images, animation and audio enabled by hypertext and, recently, by the Web3.0 standard. Search engines can search text for keywords using algorithms of varied intelligence and with limited success. Searching images is a much more complex and computationally intensive task but some initial steps have already been made in this direction, mainly in face recognition...
