EuroSDR Workshop "High Density Image
Matching for DSM Computation"
Vienna, Austria, from 16th to 17th February 2012.
EuroSDR Commission 2
Federal Office of Surveying and Metrology (BEV)
Meeting Room A802
Feb 16, 2012, 11:00-18:00
Feb 17, 2012, 08:30-15:00
The workshop goal is to identify the status and trends in high density image matching of aerial imagery and to give recommendations to developers from the users (NMCA) point of view as well as to EuroSDR for project steering.
Benchmarking of different approaches for the generation of high density digital surface models is necessary for NMCAs and developers alike, showing the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches and the possibility for integration into a processing workflow.
The workshop addresses practitioners, scientists, and photogrammetric software companies. These are especially
- National and regional mapping agencies, engaged in capturing, generation, and processing of digital topographic data, more specifically digital surface and terrain models.
- Researchers working on high density matching algorithms with an interest in benchmarking the performance of their algorithms in the application domain of NMCAs
- Developers and product managers of photogrammetric software for DSM generation from aerial imagery
Participants will gain a deeper understanding of the underlying principles of dense matching algorithms, and understand their typical output and performance. This will enable them to evaluate different approaches and judge the suitability for their own digital topographic data requirements.
