7–21 November 2023 The 5th International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing


Dear Colleagues,

The 5th International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing with a focus on “Advances in experimental and theoretical studies of terrestrial atmosphere and underlying surface” will be held on 7–21 November 2023. The main aim of the conference is to present recent advances in experimental and theoretical studies of the atmosphere (trace gases, atmospheric aerosols, cloudiness, precipitation, temperature, and pressure) and underlying surfaces with a focus on cryosphere, which has a great impact, including non-linear impacts, on climate change trends and the warming of our planet. The conference will promote the use of remote sensing and geospatial information technology and enable the exchange of innovative approaches in the area of remote sensing.

This is an excellent opportunity for remote sensing scientists to communicate with their colleagues, learn from each other, and share ideas and results. It will be possible to deliver live and pre-recorded presentations simultaneously.

The main topics and sessions of the conference are as follows:

S1. Remote sensing systems and techniques
S1-1. Ground-based, airborne, shipborne, and spaceborne remote sensing systems;
S1-2. Hyperspectral remote sensing;
S1-3. Lidar remote sensing;
S1-4. Radar remote sensing;
S1-5. Passive remote sensing.

S2. Remote sensing: physical fundamentals and inverse theory
S2-1. Electromagnetic light scattering;
S2-2 Radiative transfer;
S2-3 Inverse theory.

S3. Remote sensing applications
S3-1. Oceanic remote sensing;
S3-2. Vegetation remote sensing;
S3-3. Remote sensing of land-use and land-cover change;
S3-4. Remote sensing of snow and ice;
S3-5. Remote sensing of precipitation;
S3-6. Aerosol remote sensing;
S3-7. Cloud remote sensing;
S3-8 Remote sensing of atmospheric trace gases.

All accepted abstracts will be published on the website of the conference. You are required to submit an abstract (250–500 word limit). Please see the abstract guidelines at “Instructions for Authors”.

After the conference, there will be a possibility to submit selected papers to the related journal Remote Sensing (Impact Factor (2021): 5.349; 5-Year Impact Factor (2021): 5.786; Top Open Access Journal in Remote Sensing) with a 20% discount on the APCs.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we invite you to join us at the 5th International Electronic Conference on “Advances in experimental and theoretical studies of terrestrial atmosphere and underlying surface”.

11–13 October 2023 11th International FIG Workshop on the Land Administration Domain Model / 3D Land Administration

Gavle, Sweden

The 11th International FIG Workshop on the Land Administration Domain Model / 3D Land Administration will take place in Gavle, Sweden, from 11–13 October 2023, and will be hosted by the University of Gavl, in cooperation with Lantmateriet (the Swedish mapping, cadastral and land registration authority). The land administration domain model is gaining recognition in many areas of the world. Ten years after the publication of the first edition, a variety of country profiles already exist and a large number have implemented (or are implementing) LADM. Software suppliers are adopting LADM and implementing it in full.

However, the existing standard edition of LADM does not pay attention to implementation aspects. This can be done in various ways, and several platforms and encodings can be used in this process. The scientific community must ask itself: What are the experiences so far? What have we learned and what can be re-used? What are the pitfalls and risks? LADM is at present currently only a conceptual model in need of implementation, the steps towards which include elaborating (via a country profile) and realizing a technical model suitable for implementation from amongst: database schema (SQL DDL), exchange format (GeoJSON, INTERLIS, RDF, XML/GML), and user interface for editing and dissemination. A good option for this is the collaboration between FIG, ISPRS, IHO, ISO and OGC, which can help to standardize these implementation aspects of LADM.

The Workshop on the Land Administration Domain Model / 3D Land Administration will address developments in the following areas:

  • 3D land administration system operational experiences (analysis, LADM-based, learn from each other, discover gaps);
  • 3D LAS cost-effective workflow for new / updated 3D parcels = 4D (part of whole spatial development lifecycle: from planning / design / permit in 3D, to registration / use in 3D);
  • 3D LAS web-based dissemination (usability, man–machine interfaces, including mobile/AR);
  • Remote sensing (including LiDAR) and artificial intelligence (AI) for efficient 3D cadastral boundary extraction;
  • Legal aspects for 3D LAS, best legal practices in various legislation systems;
  • Focus on large cities, including developing countries;
  • 3D in the revision of ISO 19152, the land administration domain model;
  • Proposals for (and evaluations of) LA (remote) sensing information models (CD 19152-2) and data processing workflows (CD 19152-6), in the context of the revision of LADM.

Important deadlines for the FIG LADM / 3D Land Administration 2023 Workshop are:
