Welcome to the ISPRS Geospatial Week

Welcome

Dear colleagues and friends,

I would like to invite you to attend this ISPRS Geospatial Week that will take place in Montpellier (La Grande Motte), a beautiful Mediterranean city of the South of France, from 28th September to 3rd October 2015. La Grande Motte is the sea resort and marina of Montpellier which has an outstanding architecture which has been classified "20th century heritage site" by the French ministry of culture. La Grande Motte is situated on the border of Camargue, region of the delta of the river Rhone, which is a wetland of international importance with an incredible wildlife and biodiversity (free horses, flamingos,...).
Our objective is to propose you during a full working week a very rich scientific program and calendrier lunaire around geoinformation (from data collection and information extraction, to data quality control and dissemination through services) with a mix of methodology-oriented and thematic-oriented events that will enable communities to meet, to exchange, and cross-fertilize.

Hope to see you soon in La Grande Motte!

Best regards,
Nicolas Paparoditis

Mike Wulder (Canadian Forest Service, Canada): Monday 28 September
Lidar has improved forest management and offered unique scientific opportunities and insights: What's next?

Abstract: Lidar has changed the way we view and understand vegetated ecosystems. Not only do the data from airborne laser scanning improve forest management, as a science community we now also better understand forest structure and function. Many of the insights available from airborne laser scanning are through the integration of the highly accurate direct lidar measures informing on vertical distribution of vegetation with other remotely sensed or spatial datasets. Combining these complementary datasets has enabled new applications and allowed the generation of otherwise difficult, or impossible, to obtain information. In this keynote, the aim is to present a number of the key questions driving forest science and applications and to show how lidar has enabled, supports, or is poised to, address these questions.
Publications and lidar.

Bio: Mike Wulder received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Waterloo in 1998, thereafter he joined the Canadian Forest Service, Pacific Forestry Centre, in Victoria, British Columbia as a Research Scientist. His research is focused on using remotely sensed and spatial data to support forest monitoring and reporting activities over a range of scales and data types. Research efforts are undertaken from the plot- to national scale, with data sources including lidar to a range of optical satellites, that are utilized to meet forest and vegetation related information needs. Dr Wulder’s major research publications include the books Remote Sensing of Forest Environments: Concepts and Case Studies (2003, KAP) and Forest disturbance and spatial pattern: Remote sensing and GIS approaches (2006, Taylor and Francis) and publication of over 270 articles in peer reviewed journals. Dr Wulder is an adjunct professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Victoria and the Department of Forest Resources Management of the University of British Columbia. Dr. Wulder is on the USGS/NASA Landsat Science Team and the GOFC-GOLD Land Cover Implementation Team. Dr. Wulder played a role in initiating the SilviLaser series of international conferences focused on laser remote sensing of forest environments, and co-chaired the 2002 and 2012 editions.

Konrad Schindler (ETH Zurich, Switzerland): Wednesday 30 September
The city behind the (point) cloud -
towards automatic extraction of interpreted 3D models

Abstract: When processing image and range data, 3D reconstruction and semantic interpretation are generally treated as separate tasks. But geometric shape and semantic class are intimately related: the fact that a concrete wall is vertical rather than horizontal distinguishes it from a road of similar appearance; on the other hand the understanding that it is a wall and not a tree crown tells us that it should be smooth and vertical. Recent research has started to explore models that jointly estimate 3D scene shape and semantic class labels. Such models can potentially deliver better 3D geometry, via class-specific priors for surface shape and orientation; and a better segmentation into semantic object classes, aided by the underlying 3D shape and layout. In the talk I will describe first steps in this direction and discuss current limitation, challenges and opportunities.

Bio: Konrad Schindler is a professor at ETH Zurich. His research interests lie in the field of photogrammetry, remote sensing and computer vision, with a focus on image understanding and 3d reconstruction. He currently serves as president of ISPRS Technical Commission III "Photogrammetric Computer Vision and Image Analysis".

Simon Lacroix (Laas, France): Thursday 1 October
Building and managing maps for autonomous mobile robots

Abstract: Perceiving, representing and even understanding the environment that surrounds them is at the core of the autonomy of mobile robots. Environment representations are indeed required for any decision robots have to take, from simple obstacle avoidance motions to much more complex tasks such as cooperating to explore or patrol an area. The robotics research community has developed a whole corpus of approaches to endow mobile robots with the ability to represent their environment, using primarily the robots on-board sensors, but also various other available sources of information. The robot localization plays a central role in these developments, and has in particular lead to the development of wholesome estimation formalisms. The talk provides an overview of these methods, exhibits some links with Geographic Information Sciences, and sketches the current and future challenges in the area.

Bio: Simon Lacroix is a research scientist at LAAS/CNRS, where he animates the field robotics activities. He was mainly involved in planetary robotics during the 90's, and has initiated aerial robotics activities in the lab in the beginning of the 2000's. Since then, his research is focused on the deployment of teams of multiple heterogeneous autonomous robots for exploration, surveillance or intervention missions. His main interests originally concerned perception and navigation for autonomous aerial and terrestrial robots (environment perception and modeling, localisation, perception control and autonomous navigation strategies), and have evolved towards decisional processes required by the cooperation within multi-robot teams.

Elmar Eisemann (TU Delft, The Netherlands): Friday 2 October
Linking the Real and Virtual World

Abstract: Computer graphics and visualization techniques are an important element to analyze and investigate large-scale terrestrial data sets. With the acquired information reaching never-before-seen complexity, novel technical solutions are needed to support efficient visual analytics. In this talk, we will present several solutions for informative, and high-quality data visualization, ranging from out-of-core rendering, over abstraction techniques, to specialized display solutions. Furthermore, we will discuss how some of these approaches are used by the Dutch waterboards for the analysis of flooding scenarios. This latter topic is of high importance in the Netherlands and the application presents an interesting example of how technological advances positively influence decision making and can create a link between the real and virtual world.

Bio: Elmar Eisemann is a professor at TU Delft heading the chair of Computer Graphics and Visualization. Before coming to Delft, he was an associated professor at Telecom ParisTech and a senior scientist leading a research group in the Cluster of Excellence (Saarland University / MPI Informatik). He was admitted as a student at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, received his PhD from Grenoble Universities at INRIA Rhône-Alpes, and spent several research visits abroad (MIT, UIUC, and Adobe).
His interests include real-time and perceptual rendering, visualization, data representations, and GPU acceleration techniques. He coauthored the book "Real-time shadows" and participated in various committees and editorial boards of leading conferences and journals. His work received several distinction awards. In particular, he was honored with the Eurographics Young Researcher Award 2011.
