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, Paris and Antalya in 2005, 2009 and 2013, 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. The workshop is a part of the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2015 and will be held in conjunction with several other ISPRS workshops. For a detailed list, please refer to the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2015 web site.


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

  • Building and road extraction from aerial and space-borne images, LiDAR, and SAR
