CIPA International Symposium 1997

30 September to 3 October 1997, Göteborg, Sweden


Theme: Photogrammetry in Architecture, Archaeology and Urban Conservation


CIPA (Committé International de Photogrammétrie Architecturale) is a joint organization between the International Council of Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS, affiliated to UN), and the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS). CIPA's next international symposium will be held in Göteborg, Sweden on October 1-3, 1997.

Photographic as well as digital images, and photogrammetric technology to evaluate and measure them, are gaining increasing importance as means of assistance, not only in surveying and mapping, but also in:


The symposium will be accompanied by an exhibition of instruments and computer systems as well as examples of results from all over the world.
