Workshop goals
Earth imaging from air and space has undergone major changes over the last years. Examples of new and significant developments comprise a growing use of digital aerial cameras, an increasing number of high-resolution and hyperspectral satellite sensors, of laser scanning and SAR/InSAR. calibration issues are important for every sensor.
Today, all these data are used for the production of geospatial information. At the same time, updating existing geospatial databases has gained more importance, and automation has had a significant impact on the processing chain.
In addition, the stunning success of virtual globes, e. g. Google Earth or Bing Maps along with developments such as GEO (intergovernmental Group of Earth Observations), GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of Systems) and GMES (Global Monitoring of Environment and Security) have significantly changed the remote sensing arena in the last few years.

Today, all these data are used for the production of geospatial information. At the same time, updating existing geospatial databases has gained more importance, and automation has had a significant impact on the processing chain.
These developments form the background for the ISPRS Hannover Workshop High-Resolution Earth Imaging for Geospatial Information 2011, which you are cordially invited to attend. This meeting is a follow-up workshop of those held in Hannover in previous years.
The single-track workshop addresses experts from research, government, and private industry. It consists of high quality papers, and will provide an international forum for discussion of leading research and technological developments as well as applications in the field.

IPI is proud to announce that Intergraph agreed to be the exclusive sponsor of this event. During Thursday afternoon Intergraph will conduct a master class where the processing chain of photogrammetry and remote sensing is illustrated by software demonstrations and real-life examples.

Topics and paper submission
You are encouraged to contribute to the workshop by submitting your latest research and development in the areas of
Digital aerial cameras
Exploitation of high resolution space images
Potential of small satellites for topographic mapping
Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS)
Airborne laser scanning
Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), SAR Inter­fero­metry (InSAR), and Persistant Scatterer Interferometry (PSI)
TerraSAR-X and TandemX
Hyperspectral imaging
Sensor and system calibration and integration
Sensors and methods of DEM generation
Aerial and satellite image analysis
Image databases - information retrieval, query and search issues
GIS driven updating and refinement of geospatial databases
Virtual globes
