Welcome to MMT 2019
Shenzhen University (SZU) is honored to host the 11th International conference on Mobile Mapping Technology (MMT 2019).
The conference will be held from 6 May to 8 May 2019, at Shenzhen University.
The conference will also provides a platform for international scholars, graduate students, future scientists and industrial sectors to learn exchangeknowledge and experiences of applying up-to-date mobile mapping
technologies for sustainable development. Thanks to the advancement of direct-georeferencing and sensor technologies, mobile mapping has become a versatile technology applied for fast geospatial data acquisition
and mega engineering projects. The growing market penetration of mobile mapping, satellite imaging and web GIS has created great research and business opportunities to geospatial communitiesdevelop new technologies
for smart cities and better quality of life for people around the wrold.
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Shenzhen. Shenzhen is a coastal city in South China. It is located on a southern tip of the Chinese mainland and on the eastern bank of the Pearl River, neighboring Hong Kong. The country's first special economic zone - the brainchild of late Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping - was established here in 1980. Shenzhen has been a touchstone for China's reform and opening-up policy since then. In merely 38 years, Shenzhen, once a tiny border town of just over 30,000 people, has grown into a modern metropolis. It established many firsts in the history of world industrialization, urbanization and modernization and has become a prosperous, chic, innovative, harmonious and beautiful city.
Since the first International Symposium on Mobile Mapping Technology (MMT) was held by The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA, in 1995, this Symposium has become the largest international conference dedicated to mobile mapping technology and applications. The International conference on MMT is the premier event being organized jointly by the International Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS), International Association of Geodesy (IAG) and the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG). MMT offers a great forum for research and development in mobile mapping technology, systems and applications. The advancement of Mobile Mapping technology has attributed to many aspects in Geomatics and our day-to-day life activities. This conference will reflect 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.
