Terms of reference, International Cartographic Association (ICA) Commission on Sensor-driven Mapping (2019-2023)

  • To promote the original and practical research in use of image and range data acquired by various sensors for mapping with a focus on spatial big data handling, cartographic information extraction, 3D reconstruction of built environments, integration of indoor mapping with building information models (BIM).
  • To network cartographers with the researchers and practitioners in photogrammetry and remote sensing community, computer science community involved in sensor-driven mapping.
  • To develop closer links with ISRPS, IAG, FIG, IEEE-societies, and other ICA commissions with similar interests in sensor-driven mapping to organize ICA workshops or joint symposia during 2019-2023.
  • To publish special issues with the International Journal of Cartography and other related journals as well as books and reports.
  • To promote knowledge transfer at fundamental and advanced levels on sensor-driven mapping technology to natural and built environments, early warning and natural disaster mitigation.
  • Prepare promotional materials reflecting the commission’s terms of reference and activities that can be used to support ICA’s presence at international forums (e.g., World Map, Map Middle East, meetings of the Joint Board of Geospatial Information Societies, UN meetings, and other regional conferences).
