Mission of our Working Group Innovative Technologies in Training Civil Engineers and Architects

By May 30, 2022 No Comments

ISPRS Working Group V/7 aims to promote global literacy and advance innovations in geospatial technologies, mainly in photogrammetry and remote sensing, for implementation in the educational process of applied and natural sciences through the development of multidisciplinary educational content that will facilitate knowledge exchange between various majors and scientific organizations.
We are establishing and soliciting a global collaborative network focused on the most efficient ways to integrate professionally and crowdsourced geospatial data into civil engineering, architectural, ecological, geological, and other operational workflows.
To meet this challenge, WG is planning to develop and promote worldwide educational content enabling to provide training and education for geospatial literacy and skills-set development in civil engineering, environmental and architectural activities, ecological and geological studies, etc.
Special attention will be given to the low-cost photogrammetry, UAS, LiDAR, and open-sourced geospatial technologies suitable for deployment by developing countries. To this end, the group aims to establish collaboration with the UN University, European, and the US educational programs that challenge to help the developing countries.
Finally, WG shares educational content, develops novel educational components of training and education in photogrammetry and remote sensing for civil engineers, architects, environmental engineers, etc, organize joint workshops, symposium and prepares curriculums, textbooks, and recommendations.
