Scope and Topics


Automated extraction of topographic objects and vehicles from remotely sensed data is an important topic of research in Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing, GIS, and Computer Vision. This joint conference of ISPRS working groups III/4 and III/VII, sequel to the successful CMRT conferences that took place in Vienna and Paris in 2005 and 2009, respectively, will bring together experts from these fields to discuss recent developments, the potential of various data sources, and future trends both with respect to sensors and processing techniques in automatic object extraction. The focus of the conference is on methodological research.


Submissions are invited in, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Building and road extraction from aerial and space-borne images, LiDAR, and SAR
  • Updating of existing 3D city models and road data bases
  • Automatic texturing of 3D city models
  • Image interpretation for facade modelling
  • Detection and velocity estimation of vehicles from remote sensing data
  • Methods for micro- and macro-scale traffic monitoring
  • Detection and modelling of vegetation classes and single trees
  • Techniques and models for analysing complex urban scenes
  • Level-of-detail modelling of topographic objects
  • Data fusion for automatic object extraction
  • Quality assessment of automatically extracted topographic objects
