The ISPRS (International Society for photogrammetry and remote sensing) Congress is a premier event for researchers and practitioners in the fields of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and geospatial information. It has been held regularly for more than a century, usually every four years.

In their very first live participation in an ISPRS Congress, researchers from the GATE Institute presented the Sofia City Living Lab, which will be launched in September. The paper and poster outlined the lab’s concept, design, implementation, and future use cases for the lab.

Besides the opportunity to popularise the work at GATE, the researchers were able to take part in various discussions, networking events and technological demonstrations. During the visit, GATE was invited to organise a workshop on urban digital twins, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Twente and the Technical University in Delft.

The event gathered over 2500 research papers from around the world, with contributions from both academia and industry.
