The conference of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing – ISPRS - is one of the biggest international events in the field of photogrammetry, remote sensing, earth observation and geoinformation. After being postponed twice the community was waiting eagerly to finally meet again in presence to present and discuss their actual research.
Former and actual members of HFT Stuttgart were well represented. In one of the poster sessions – in total more than 1000 posters have been presented – two actual graduates - Sanchalita Bandyopadhyay und Muhammed Alfakhori – of the Masters Programme Photogrammtery and Geoinformatics discussed the results of their Master theses. Hamid Ostadabbas – Alumni of the Master Photogrammetry and Geoinformatics program - from STEG as cooperation partner of Sanchalita’s thesis supported her presentation. She developed a Web-GIS application for urban planners to support building land provision.
Muhammed investigated the screening for occlusion in the context of augmented realty. Another Alumni of the Master course, Shafi Bajauri, now researcher at TU Braunschweig, presented his actual project, which is the monitoring of cranes using drones. Godwin Yeboah, graduate of both Master programmes Photogrammetry and Geoinformatics as well as Software Technology almost 20 years ago, was awarded with the well-recognized Jack-Dangermond prize. Prof. Volker Coors in his presentation gave an overview of the actual research at HFT Stuttgart about digital twins, whereas Prof. Schröder was member of the jury for the CatCon contest to promote the development and dissemination of effective and user-friendly, open-source software designed and used specifically for computer assisted teaching. Winner of this price was an international group of students who developed a simulation software for terrestrial laser scanning, which will also be used for training of the young surveyors at HFT Stuttgart.
