ISPRS Logo     ISPRS - Commission III - Photogrammetric Computer Vision and Image Analysis
    Working Group III / 1 - Pose Estimation and Surface Reconstruction from Image and/or Range Data, 2008-2012


Our mission:

Our working group aims at fostering cooperation between photogrammetry and computer vision in pose estimation and surface reconstruction, particularly concerning the evaluation of the potential of different approaches.


Terms of Reference:

  • Promote within ISPRS more or less fully automatic methods for:
    • calibration and orientation without requiring markers,
    • surface reconstruction.
  • Current state-of-the-art methods are to be tested with respect to general applicability, reliability, and performance. Thereby, a further refinement and robustification of the methods is to be fostered.
  • WG III/1 will therefore provide various synthetic and real test data sets for image calibration/orientation as well as surface reconstruction tasks. It will invite researchers to evaluate their algorithms against known ground truth data with respect to general applicability and robustness.
