The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, founded in 1934, is a scientific association serving over 7,000 professional members around the world. Our mission is to advance knowledge and improve understanding of mapping sciences to promote the responsible applications of photogrammetry, remote sensing, GIS, and supporting geotechnologies. ASPRS members work as analysts, specialists, educators, engineers, managers, administrators, product developers, operators, technicians, marketers, scientists and researchers in the fields of Aerospace, Agriculture, Archeology, Biology, Cartography, Defense, Development, Ecology, Environment, Forestry, Geodesy, Geography, Geology, Homeland Security, Hydrology, Land Appraisal, Medicine, Real Estate, Transportation, Urban Planning and Water Resources. The Rocky Mountain Region serves ASPRS members in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico.
Joint Conference Coming Soon:
ILMF (International LiDAR Mapping Forum) and ASPRS Annual Conference
February 5-7, 2018
Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center
The geospatial industry will soon descend on Denver for what is certain to be the single largest gathering of geospatial professionals in the Rocky Mountain West — ever. For mapping professionals, there’s no better place for technical education, networking and sourcing geospatial solutions all in one place than at ILMF and ASPRS Annual Conference 2018! It will be the best of ILMF and the best of ASPRS!!
Better Together! Two Conferences and One Exhibit Floor
More education, networking, and technology than ever before!
