The Direct Georeferencing Committee provides participants with a good understanding of the concept of direct georeferencing (directly measuring the exterior orientation parameters of each single image using GPS-aided Inertial data). In principal direct geo-referencing allows for the elimination of the aerial triangulation and ground control from the mapping process except for quality assurance purposes. The goals of the committee are to:
- Share the university and industry experience on Direct Georeferencing through workshops courses meetings newsletters etc.
- Publish guidelines and specs on the ASPRS website and in PE&RS.
- Conduct special sessions on Direct Georeferencing (DG) in ASPRS and ISPRS conferences
