The biennial event Photogrammetric Week (PhoWo) was initiated by Carl Pulfrich as a “vacation course in photogrammetry” in 1909; since 1973 it has been held at the University of Stuttgart.
As always the single-track scientific program is conducted by internationally recognized 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 talks will focus on trends and achievements of the following topics:
· Sensors and Data Acquisition
· Photogrammetry, Computer Vision and Remote Sensing
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, September 10, 2017. The fundamentals of imaging optical and radar sensors (SAR) are highlighted and we will emphasize on SAR interferometry and modern methods for land cover classification.
The 56th Photogrammetric Week ’17 will be held from 11-15. September in Stuttgart, Germany.
