February 6-8, 2022  |  Colorado Convention Center   |  Denver, CO, USA

Geo Week is proud to partner with ASPRS to hold its Annual Conference with Geo Week. This co-location provides networking and technical training for professionals working with photogrammetry, remote sensing, and GIS, while also providing exposure to the technology and professionals working in related fields.

What is ASPRS?

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.

What is the ASPRS Annual Conference?

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!

ASPRS is thrilled to be back at Geo Week with the face-to-face component of our 2022 Annual Conference, consisting of:

Presentations, panel discussions, and a poster gallery are part of the technical program including these hot topics:
  • Geospatial Market Opportunities Leveraging Remote Sensing Products and Services
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Geospatial Industry
  • Evolving National and International Standards involving Reference Frames, Positional Accuracy, Thematic Accuracy, and Data Quality
  • Positional and Thematic Accuracy Standards (Qassim)
  • New Airborne and Spaceborne Sensors and Data Products
  • Remote Sensing Data Sharing and Processing in the Cloud
Additional technical sessions will consist of 15-minute oral presentations and 5-minute Ignite-Style talks submitted by members of the academic community, government agency representatives, and industry professionals highlighting:
  • Innovative approaches to acquisition of remote sensing and geospatial data
  • Practical applications of remote sensing and geospatial data
  • Remote sensing data management and processing
  • Decision-making based on remote sensing and geospatial data at the local, state, and federal level

Our workshop program is open to all Geo Week attendees regardless of registration type and can be added to your conference registration by contacting GeoWeek@xpressreg.net. We are offering six 4-hour workshops and four 2-hour workshops, taught by seasoned professionals and experienced instructors, in the general topic areas listed below. Participants will receive ASPRS-issued certificates for Professional Development Hours.

  • Acquisition and Processing of Imagery and Lidar with Unmanned Aerial Systems
  • Imagery Analysis using Object-Based, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning on the Desktop and in the Cloud
  • Review for ASPRS Certification Examinations in Photogrammetry, GIS, Remote Sensing, Lidar and UAS
  • Principles and Applications of Airborne Bathymetric Lidar
  • Evolving National Standards for Datum Modernization and High-Resolution Elevation Data

ASPRS will also be conducting annual meetings of our Councils, Divisions, and Committees on Sunday, February 6. These meetings are open to anyone interested in learning more about ASPRS.

  • The Sustaining Members Council consists of companies and agencies who support ASPRS through their corporate membership and provide input on ASPRS programs addressing geospatial standards, continuing education, certification of practitioners, mentoring, and workforce development.
  • The Region Officers Council consists of representatives from the 13 ASPRS Regions who coordinate local events and outreach among ASPRS members and other regional geospatial organizations.
  • The Technical Division Directors Council consists of the Director and Assistant Directors of the seven ASPRS Technical Divisions. They initiate and coordinate technical working groups focused on implementation and interoperability of remote sensing and mapping technologies.
    • GIS Division
    • Lidar Division
    • Photogrammetric Applications Division
    • Primary Data Acquisition Division
    • Professional Practice Division
    • Remote Sensing Applications Division
    • Unmanned Autonomous Systems Division
  • The Committee Chairs Council brings together the leaders of the ASPRS Standing Committees, including
    • Awards and Scholarships
    • Communications and Publications
    • Education and Professional Development
    • Evaluation for Certification
    • Standards
  • The Student Advisory Council and Early Career Professionals Council strive to serve the needs of students and others who are entering the geospatial profession either as recent graduates or in transition from other professions. They sponsor networking, mentoring, and career development events throughout the year, as well as at the Annual Conference.

ASPRS will be awarding thousands of dollars to our Award and Scholarship recipients, both in ASPRS Annual Business meeting and the Geo Week Award Ceremony on Monday, February 7. Come and join us in celebrating the outstanding achievements of students, authors, and outstanding individuals. Learn more about the ASPRS Awards and Scholarship programs so you can apply or nominate others next year!

Bringing ASPRS and ILMF together beginning in 2018 reunited the photogrammetry, remote sensing, and lidar professionals and vendors who enthusiastically welcomed the opportunity to attend one consolidated event; an event where they could roam one large exhibit hall and attend educational workshops to broaden their expertise into related disciplines. Bringing the built world into this mix through AEC Next and SPAR 3D acknowledges not only the richness and complexity of the technologies we have available for spatial analysis and decision making, it also give us all the opportunity to explore and invent new analysis methods that leverage the fusion of imagery, elevation, and bathymetry with 3D models of the built world. The merging of these disciplines IS the future. Co-locating our annual conferences and expositions facilitates us traveling into the future on a multi-lane superhighway.
