Founded in 1934 the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is a scientific association serving professional members around the world. Our mission is to advance knowledge and improve understanding of mapping sciences to promote the responsible applications of photogrammetry, remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS) and supporting technologies.
Each year professionals working with photogrammetry, remote sensing, and GIS gather at the ASPRS Annual Conference for technical workshops, education sessions, awards recognizing excellence, and ASPRS committee meetings. Members and non-members welcome!
As part of the inaugural Geo Week in January 2019, the ASPRS program was attended by over 300 participants and included 150+ technical presentations and 19 workshops. In 2020 the ASPRS Annual Conference will take place as part of the second edition of Geo Week in Washington, DC.
ASPRS members, individuals from private industry, the government and academia, are analysts, specialists, educators, engineers, managers, administrators, manufacturers, product developers, operators, technicians, trainees, marketers and scientists/researchers. Employed in the disciplines of the mapping sciences, our members work in the fields of Agriculture, Soils, Archeology, Biology, Cartography, Ecology, Environment, Forestry, Range Geodesy, Geography, Geology, Hydrology, Water Resources, Land Appraisal, Real Estate, Medicine, Transportation, and Urban Planning/Development.
