Running from 12 – 13 June at The University of Twente in the Netherlands, the workshop is the eleventh in the Geospatial workshop series, and will involve six breakout sessions, two of which will also be chaired by Dr Boehm.

Covering various aspects of space borne, airborne, mobile and terrestrial laser scanning in both indoor and outdoor environments, the workshop will offer attendees the opportunity to hear from experts who focus on processing and using point cloud data acquired from laser scanners and other 3D imaging systems. 29 oral and 33 poster presentations - chosen from 75 submissions - will form part of the workshop.

Speaking on the event, Dr Boehm, a member of CEGE's Geomatics section, and Programme Director of the department's Geospatial Sciences (Building Information Modelling) MSc, said “I am looking forward to this workshop - the work currently being done in this field is exceptional and this event will focus on how we are adapting quickly to the newest technologies and the ways we’re using data. To have our workshop appear in such a prestigious event for the geospatial field, as well as the sheer number of submissions we received, shows how much interest the geospatial discipline has in laser scanning and 3D imaging systems.”

This year’s ISPRS Geospatial Week will be the fourth time the biennial week has run. The event aims to increase communication between different communities both within ISPRS and externally.
