ISPRS TC IV Midterm Symposium “3D Spatial Information Science – The Engine of Change” to be held in October in The Netherlands

The Netherlands: The ISPRS TC IV Midterm Symposium is being jointly organized with UDMS SDSC, FIG 3D Cadastre, and 3DGeoinfo. It will be held in Delft, The Netherlands from October 1-5.

The focus of this symposium is on 3D representations, integration of data from different domains (indoor/outdoor, above/below the surface, design/real world) and applying the information for a variety of applications. The joint event aims to bring together researchers, professionals and users from different domains to discuss, exchange ideas, and demonstrate new developments. It will provide great opportunities to learn users’ requirements and interact with software developers. Much attention will be given to 3D standards, open access and exchange of spatial information. Best practices on 3D applications will be showcased.

Five keynote speakers will discuss emerging 3D spatial information topics:

  •  Prof Dr. Ruizhi Chen: Smartphone positioning and 3D mapping indoors
    • Dr. Rod Thompson: 3D cadastres: 30 years back, 30 years ahead
    • Dr. Claus Nagel: Use cases of 3D City Information Models
    • Dr. Antonio Jara: Smart Destinations: Challenges and opportunities to create sustainable smart cities in the data economy
    • Dorine Burmanje:  The Netherlands Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping
