Photogrammetric Week 2017 Programme Announced - 15/05/2017


The 56th Photogrammetric Week in Stuttgart, Germany, will be held from 11-15 September 2017. The biennial Photogrammetric Week (PhoWo) 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. Over the years remote sensing and geoinformatics together with photogrammetry have become the major subject areas of this conference. Today, Photogrammetric Week enjoys international recognition as an upgrading seminar and a platform for the exchange of knowledge and experience.

As always the single-track scientific programme is conducted by internationally recognised keynote and invited speakers in the mornings, and the well-selected OpenPhowo Partners demonstrate their latest technologies in photogrammetry, remote sensing and geoinformatics in the afternoons.

The presentations will be in English. Sufficient time will be allocated for discussions. The program will be supplemented with demonstrations and comments on practical examples in the afternoons. The fringe events will offer sufficient opportunity for personal contacts.

In addition, a tutorial on Remote Sensing – From Basics to Advanced Methods will be held by the Institute for Photogrammetry (ifp) on Sunday afternoon, 10 September 2017. The fundamentals of optical and radar image sensors (SAR) are highlighted and we will emphasise on SAR interferometry and modern methods for land cover classification.
