CMRT05 Papers

Monday August 29, 2005
Tuesday August 30, 2005

Automated extraction of topographic objects from remotely sensed data is an important topic of research in both Photogrammetry and Computer Vision. This joint workshop of the ISPRS and the DAGM, held at Vienna University of Technology, brought together researchers from both communities to present and discuss recent developments, the potential of various data sources, and future trends both with respect to sensors and processing techniques in automatic object extraction.

Scientific program:
The workshop was held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the German Association of Pattern Recognition (DAGM) from 29 August 2005 to 30 August 2005. The acceptance of papers was based on a double-blind reviewing process of the full papers. Each paper was evaluated by at least two reviewers. A total of 30 papers were selected in that process, 18 of them for oral presentation and 12 as posters.
