This event, initiated by Carl Pulfrich as a “Vacation Course in Photogrammetry” in 1909, has been held since 1973 at the University of Stuttgart. Today, the Photogrammetric Week Series enjoys international recognition as an upgrading seminar and a platform for the exchange of experience. It attracts since many years more than 500 participants from more than 50 countries. Its proceedings are well documented since 1975 on the Web and represent one of the best set of paper collections in the field of photogrammetry and related spatial sciences.
The Photogrammetric Week Series is unique – the single track scientific program in the mornings is conducted by internationally recognized Keynote and Invited Speakers only, the well-selected OpenPhowo Partners demonstrate their latest technologies in Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Geoinformatics in the afternoons.
This year the lectures by experts from Germany and abroad will be focused on the following topics:
– Data Collection From Air, Space and Ground – An Update
– Advanced Methods of Computer Vision and Photogrammetry
– Solving the Future Mapping Problem, All About 3D Modelling
The presentations will be in English. Sufficient time will be allocated for discussions.
The scientific program and the demonstrations will be supplemented by fringe events in the evenings to offer sufficient opportunity for personal contacts and to renew friendship.
In addition, a tutorial on “All About 3D Modelling – From 2.5 Meshes to 3D Virtual Reality Models” will be held by the Institute for Photogrammetry (ifp), University of Stuttgart, on Sunday, September 8, 2013.
