ISPRS Logo     ISPRS - Commission V - Close-Range Sensing: Analysis and Applications
    Working Group V / 6 - Close range morphological measurement for the earth sciences, 2008-2012
  
 

 

Our mission:

Working Group V/6 aims to promote and coordinate activities involving the spatial measurement of natural objects at close range using a variety of modern geomatics technologies, including: digital photogrammetry and terrestrial laser scanning. Activities are of interest to those involved in: 3D reconstruction for: geomorphology, earth science, hydrology, agriculture, forestry, glaciology, geology, surface roughness and climate change studies.

 

Terms of Reference:

  • To increase awareness of close-range photogrammetry and laser scanning to enable wider and wiser application within the earth sciences;
  • Educate and informnon-geomatic” users of the existence and benefits of involvement with ISPRS;
  • Identify and promote differing small format camera calibration requirements and approaches, suitable for scales of enquiry relevant for close-range activities;
  • Develop, and make freely available, ‘best-practice’ guidelines for non-expert users of:

    •  Consumer grade digital cameras- e.g. simplifying “3x3 rules”
    •  Terrestrial laser scanners
  • Identify and rank the key qualities of spatial data necessary for numerical simulation and physical modelling.
