NCKU Hosts an International Symposium on Mobile Mapping Technology

TAINAN, Taiwan — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 6, 2013 — The 8th International Symposium on Mobile Mapping Technology (MMT 2013) was hosted by National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), southern Taiwan, May 1-3, with nearly 250 mobile mapping experts from 15 countries, including America, Canada, Japan, Korea, Australia, Germany, France, Hong Kong, Malaysia, China, and Taiwan.

MMT 2013 provided a platform for international young scholars and industrial sectors to learn knowledge and experiences of applying up-to-date mobile mapping technologies, according to the university.

NCKU Vice President Dr. Hong-Sen Yan on behalf of President Hwung-Hweng Hwung attended the opening ceremony and welcomed the guests from the world, He said, “NCKU is honored to host MMT 2013 which is the premier event being organized jointly by the ISPRS, FIG and IAG. MMT offers a great forum for research and development in mobile mapping technology, systems and applications.”

The advancement of Mobile Mapping technology had attributed to many aspects in Geomatics, said Dr. Kai-Wei Chiang from the Department of Geomatics, NCKU.

He also said, “This symposium reflected the core spectrum of the latest developments in mobile mapping technology, ranging from the algorithm research to the system development, from land-based to airborne systems, from direct georeferencing to sensor integration, from mobile data collection to dynamic GIS management.”

“Thanks to the advancement of direct georeferencing and sensor technologies, mobile mapping has become a versatile technology applied for fast geospatial data acquisition,” according to Prof. Naser El-Sheimy from University of Calgary, Canada.

He added, “a typical mobile mapping system (MMS) is composed of an integrated array of time synchronized navigation sensors and imaging sensors mounted on a mobile platform, such as terrestrial vehicles, water-based vessels, aircrafts or helicopters, unmanned airborne vehicles (UAV), and hand-carried by individuals.”

“The growing market penetration of mobile mapping, satellite imaging and web GIS has created great research and business opportunities to geospatial communities,” El-Sheimy said.

Dr. Chiang pointed out that MMT 2013 opened for a wide variety of research and application issues in the mobile mapping community, ranging from system development to sensor integration, imaging algorithms and mobile GIS applications.
