The theme, REMOTE SENSING OF URBAN AREAS, reflects the power of using multiple sources of satellite and airborne imagery with geographic information and the expertise of urban areas.
The first symposium "Remote Sensing of Urban Areas" was held in Regensburg, Germany, in 1997. This topic was addressed during the fall meeting of the DGPF-Workgroup "Interpretation of Remote Sensing Data" led by Prof. Dr. C. Gläßer. Due to the success of this workshop and due to the availability of new data sources and emerging image processing techniques a follow-up symposium on the topic of remote sensing of urban areas was organized in 2001 to continue scientific discussions on this topic. This initiative was supported by ISPRS activities e.g. the new working group VII-4 "Human Settlements and Impact Analysis" that was created during the last ISPRS-Congress in Amsterdam 2000.

Due to great interest of scientists from different countries to both symposia and the continuous developments in space technologies for monitoring urban areas the Third International Symposium is supported by several institutions on the national and international level.

The Symposium organizing committee kindly invites you to participate in this Symposium, which will be held in Ýstanbul, Turkey in June of 2002, and to share this information with other interested scientists around the world. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend this meeting which will demonstrate the value of geo-information systems for urban areas.
