The aim of UAV-g 2017 is to bring together experts in photogrammetry and remote sensing, surveying, robotics, computer vision, artificial intelligence, aerospace engineering, geosciences and various UAV user communities. Researchers, developers, service and systems providers as well as users are invited to contribute with presentations, posters and discussions to create synergies between research and applications using UAV in Geomatics. UAV-g 2017 will take place in Bonn, Germany on September 4-7, 2017 and is the 4th edition of the International Conference on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in Geomatics. The UAV-g 2017 is an ISPRS event.

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit their paper contributions on the following topics among others:

  • Platforms, payloads and instruments for photogrammetry and remote sensing,
  • Navigation and position/orientation determination,
  • Light-weight GNSS,
  • Dense image matching and surface reconstruction,
  • 3D reconstruction from oblique images,
  • 3D reconstruction from range sensors,
  • Simultaneous localization and mapping,
  • Cooperative UAV/UAV and UAV/UGV systems,
