invite you to
10th National Geoinformation Symposium
at the same time organized as:
1st Geoinformation Congress
„Contemporary Geoinformation Technologies in space modelling”
Kraków, 25th – 27th October 2023
Scope of the Congress
Growing in recent years popularity of geoinformation determines the need of the exchange of experience in recording and processing geodata in a bigger group of scientists. After several years of break, due to the initiative of Associations – organizers of the event - the idea of common cyclic meetings extended by the topics related to spatial information systems.
10th National Geoinformatic Symposium with extended scope will be organized as:
1st Geoinformation Congress
This event will allow full integration of scientists connected with geoinformation in
The Geoinformation Congress will be a scientific event, which will facilitate the presentation of the newest Polish and foreign scientific achievements and experience connected with the implementation of modern geoinformation methods into practice.
The aim of the Congress is discussion and the exchange of experience on the participation of modern geoinformation technologies in processing of cartographic data, photogrammetric data, remote sensing data and spatial information systems. The congress covers the following topics: consistent modelling of situation and height information, geoinformation standards, integration of research in photogrammetry, remote sensing, cartography, methods and algorithms of automatic 3D modelling, as well as analyses and visualization of 3D data and applications of geoinformation technologies in other fields.
Proposed details of the Congress scope:
• Geoinformation in administration
• Systems of Spatial Information
• Trends of the development in photogrammetry, cartography and remote sensing
• Methods and algorithms of processing geoinformatic data
• Processing data of airborne and terrestrial laser scanning
• Application of UAV platforms in obtaining geoinformation
• Remote measurement methods in engineering
• Integration, modelling, 3D reconstructions and visualization of geodata
• Application of satellite images of intense resolution
• Satellite radar interferometry – InSAR
• Monitoring of agriculture and ecosystems
• Education in geoinformation
In the framework of the congress presentations of the invited foreign guests will be held.
Theme Sessions and Poster Sessions
In the framework of the 1st Geoinformation Congress the organizers plan to carry out theme sessions connected with the topics of the Congress. Among others session “Geoinformatics in Administration” is planned. It will be dealing with current problems and co-operation within the triangle: Administration - Business - Science. Poster sessions are also planned. The programme and names of sessions will be given in 3rd announcement, after receiving the feedback from the participants. A contest (with prizes) for young scientists (up to 35 years old) is also planned. The rules of the contest will be announced on the website of the Congress.
Exhibitions and Workshops
During the Congress there will be presentations of geoinformation-related companies. Exhibitions of the equipment and software will be available for the whole duration of the Congress.
Workshops in (inter alia) photogrammetry, low-ceiling remote sensing and software for processing geoinformation data are also planned.
All the interested companies are invited to participate and offer their solutions both at exhibitions as well as workshops.
The scientific materials posted to the Congress can be published in specialist journals of the relevant societies, such as:
- Archiwum Fotogrametrii, Kartografii i Teledetekcji - https://ptfit.sgp.geodezja.org.pl/archiwum-fotogrametrii-kartografii-i-teledetekcji/
