Laser Scanning 2013 is the 8th event of a series of ISPRS workshops covering various aspects of spaceborne, airborne and mobile laser scanning, and all terrestrial 3D ranging sensors.
The workshop would like to bring together experts from different disciplines which are focused on the modeling and application of point cloud data acquired from laser scanners and other active imaging systems, such as range cameras and gaming sensors. All aspects related to sensor calibration and modeling, as well as data processing are

The workshop is held in parallel with the CMRT 2013 (Object Extraction for 3D City Models, Road Databases and Traffic Monitoring – Concepts, Algorithms, and Evaluation’) ISPRS workshop and in conjunction with the ISPRS joint meeting on ‘Serving Society with Geoinformatics’.

Workshop topics:

  • Sensor and system calibration and validation;
  • Error and data modeling;
  • Point cloud registration and processing;
  • Feature extraction and object recognition;
  • Full wave-form data analysis;
  • Data fusion (LiDAR, RADAR, imagery);
  • Mobile terrestrial scanning systems;
  • Range imaging and gaming sensors;
  • Modeling of anthropogenic and natural areas;
  • Engineering and science oriented applications.

Organised by:

  • WG V/3: Terrestrial 3D Imaging and Sensors
  • WG III/2: 3D Point Cloud Processing
  • WG I/2: LIDAR, SAR and Optical Sensors for Airborne and Spaceborne Platforms
  • WG I/3: Multi-Platform Multi-Sensor Inter-Calibration
  • ICWG I/Va: Mobile Scanning and Imaging Systems for 3D Surveying and Mapping
  • WG V/2: Cultural Heritage
  • WG VII/7 Theory and Experiments in Radar and Lidar
