V1 Media

V1 Media publishes Earth Imaging Journal (http:/, Sensors & Systems (, Informed Infrastructure (, Asian Surveying & Mapping (ASM) (, and the video news site GeoSpatial Stream ( Each of these publications deals with the combination of sensors and systems for different geographies and for related disciplines. Engineering, surveying, positioning, GIS, BIM, and remote sensing are key areas of coverage with the goal of increased infrastructure performance and efficiency, and better stewardship of our planet. We deliver our content via print publications, websites, video, e-newsletters, e-learning, and events.

Earth Imaging Journal

Earth Imaging Journal is a bimonthly digital magazine covering a range of earth observation and geospatial technologies and applications. Content is crafted to satisfy novice through professional. Content is written by industry professionals, researchers and magazine staff to illuminate the broad band of applications, products and processes that are shaping the international Earth imaging market.

Sensors & Systems

Sensors & Systems covers the integrated technologies of GIS, remote sensing, modeling, spatial analysis, surveying and sensor technologies for the understanding of change. We focus on some of the key challenges that these tools help us address, including energy, water, food, biodiversity, environment and security.

Congress program

The Congress is divided into multiple sessions of various types. To actively participate (as a presenter) you must submit a contribution to the one of the following sessions:


The Scientific Program of the Congress will offer a wide range of topics, which are incorporated in the present orientations of the ISPRS Technical Commissions and all their Working Groups.

Theme Sessions will present bridging themes between/among WGs.


ISPRS cooperates with other organizations and they organize together so called Special Sessions (SpS). These sessions will enhance a range of potential applications of our knowledge and will spread our achievements to the member of our sister organizations.


On Sunday 17 July, there will be oral and interactive sessions organized by ISPRS Student Consortium. The students who are currently working on their graduate, master and PhD. studies are welcome to attend.


All registrants at the ISPRS Congress may nominate a software system or a data set for the contest. In principle, all tutorials, software or data sets nominated for CATCON contest should be non-commercial and should be provided to users without license charges for not-for-profit use.


ISPRS together with United Nations Initiation on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM) will organize the first ISPRS — UN-GGIM National Mapping and Cadastral Agency Forum. One of the strategy goals of ISPRS is to provide a better forum for National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies to discuss their scientific and technical issues in mapping.


ISPRS together with the International Academy of Astronautics will organize the first ISPRS-IAA Space Agency Forum. The Forum provides an ideal platform for Space Agencies for mutual discussions with one of the main community of users of space imagery and scientific community that supports it.


ISPRS encourages companies to organize Exhibitor’s Showcase Sessions and Commercial Sessions to present the latest development of their societies to the ISPRS Congress participants.


Half-day or one-day tutorials will take place before the Congress (11 and 12 July). These tutorials are prepared for Congress participants to bring their knowledge up to date or to be introduced to new developments.


Summer school before the Congress will focus among other topics mainly on: LIDAR Measurements and Free softrware for GIS and remote sensing. All Summer school participants must have an accepted paper at the Congress.



The Congress offers social activities every evening such as Welcome Reception, Exhibitors’ Reception, Congress Dinner and more.

For young scientist special social program will be prepared like Young Scientists Ice-Breaker Party, Soccer match and more.

Various optional and technical tours will be offered.

General Information Final program


The main purpose of the Student Consortium is to link students, young researches and professionals in different countries and provide a platform for exchange of information, to organize student specific events and other actions that integrate youth effectively into ISPRS.

Youth activities will start with Summer school before the Congress, followed by Youth Forum during the Congress. “Youth Forum” Best posters and papers will be awarded during the General Assembly. To strengthen the interaction among young scientists special social program for young scientists will be organized.
