The wide variety of sensors and systems available on the market for collecting spatial data makes the evaluation of provided information, calibration of sensors and benchmarking of systems a critical task. It is also an important scientific issue for many professionals. In daily work, the assessment of tools for collecting spatial data resources is a crucial issue for National Mapping and Cadastral Agency officers and all professionals handling geospatial data. This Workshop is therefore appropriate for potential attendees who want to extend their knowledge in the fields of photogrammetry and remote sensing.
During the workshop, benchmark proposals will also be announced for release to interested researchers from around the world. The aim of these benchmarks will be to provide independent research results into the evaluation and comparison of sensors and systems. The results, after their verification, will be submitted as publications to the world-leading ISPRS scientific journals, with co-authorship of all authors participating in the benchmarking exercise.
Benchmarks are popular method of getting knowledge engaging scientists from many countries conducted research projects together . This is the list of latest benchmarks related to sensors. It can be an inspiration for authors of further research proposals that can be presented during planned workshop.

This edition VOLTA Summer School is related to hyperspectral data, which is organized just after the Workshop. It is targeted at PhD Students, Masters Students, National Mapping and Cadastral Agency Officers, and other professionals working with image and range-based sensors collecting remote sensing data, either as separate sensors or in integrated systems. Topics of the joint workshop will include geometric and radiometric calibration of various cameras (large-format, optical, hyperspectral, terrestrial and lightweight UAV cameras), validation and evaluation of sensors in remote sensing, as well as other submitted proposals in accordance with subject of this event.
