W9: 3D Sensing for Smart Cities

Workshop Overview

High-accuracy and high-efficiency 3D sensing and associated data processing techniques are urgently needing for smart cities. 3D geospatial data acquired by digital photogrammetry or laser scanning or LiDAR systems have become one of the most important data sources to support smart cities applications, such as city infrastructure inventory, city planning, urban design, autonomous driving, etc. This workshop will seek contributions covering advanced topics related to the state of the art and future trends of 3D sensing technology and algorithms for smart city applications. Papers addressing the following topics are welcomed: photogrammetric mapping, LiDAR point cloud processing, Ubiquitous sensing, Cross-modality sensing, etc. The workshop will be part of the ISPRS Geospatial Week 2024 and is hosted the Arab Academy for Science, Technology, and Maritime Transport (AASTMT) in parallel with several related geospatial workshops.
