The ISPRS Workshop on 3D Virtual City Modeling
28th of May 2013, University of Regina, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada
In conjunction with the Tenth Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (CRV 2013), May 28-31, 2013
Workshop Objectives

The main purpose of organizing this workshop is to gather the latest multidisciplinary research works in virtual city modelling from all of the fields in photogrammatry, remote sensing, computer vision, machine learning, and computer graphics. The cityscape comprises a wide range of natural and man-made objects including street trees, forests, gardens, street furniture, cars, advertisement signs, façade, building rooftops and pedestrians. The automation of visual interpretation of such diverse urban objects and thus the generation of large-scale 3D virtual cityscape models from aerial, space-borne and ground-based sensors has long been a grand challenge of photogrammetry, remote sensing and computer vision is still an active research theme.

The workshop aims to collect the latest research works from all areas of photogrammetry, remote sensing, computer vision and machine learning relevant for or applied to 3D virtual city modeling and for discussing fundamental, operational and translational research in 3D virtual city modeling. For the last few years, the ISPRS WGIII/4 initiated benchmarking tests on various algorithms for 3D virtual city modeling and are currently editing the special issue of ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing in the same research topics to the workshop. The VCM 2013 will provide a great opportunity to discuss the current status of VCM researches & developments and identify new challenging problems.
