The Philippines will host the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) Technical Commission V (TC V) Symposium with the theme, “Insight to Foresight via Geospatial Technologies,” from 06 to 08 August 2024 in Manila, Philippines.

A three-day event featuring plenary and parallel sessions, exhibits, poster presentations, and business meetings, aims to inspire new methods of teaching/learning, collaboration, and promotion of accessible and easy-to-use geospatial data among engage professionals, educators, and tertiary students.

TC V focuses on the capacity building of professionals, educators and students, and in developing cost-effective teaching methods. These include distance learning programs, international collaborations on sharing web-based resources, and curricula development that meets regional needs. Additionally, these activities support youth forum and consortium activities, and encourage open-source software tools and innovative methodologies for urban infrastructure, citizen science and geospatial technology in various applications. 

Established in 1910, the ISPRS is devoted to the development of international cooperation for the research, advancement, and education of photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences.  

The Philippines has been an active member of the ISPRS through the Philippine Geosciences and Remote Sensing Society (PhilGRSS). In 2015, the country hosted the Asian Conference on Remote Sensing.
