Personal profile

Personal profile

George Vosselman (1963) is professor in Geo-Information Extraction with Sensor Systems. He graduated with honours from the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, in Geodetic Engineering in 1986. After his graduation he worked at the Institute of Photogrammetry of the University of Stuttgart, Germany, until 1992. In 1991 he obtained his PhD degree with honours from the Rheinische Friedrich Wilhelms University of Bonn, Germany. After a year as visiting scientist at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA, he was appointed professor of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing at the Delft University of Technology in 1993. In 2004 he joined ITC, now a faculty of the University of Twente. George Vosselman is recipient of the Hansa Luftbild Award (1993), the ISPRS Otto von Gruber Award (2000), the Schwidefsky Medal (2012), the Karl Kraus Medal (2012), and the ASPRS Photogrammetric (Fairchild) Award (2015). He is board member of the Netherlands Geodetic Commission (NCG) and corresponding member of the German Geodetic Commission (DGK). From 2005 until 2012 he was Editor-in-Chief of the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. From 2012 until 2018 he was head of the Department of Earth Observation Science.

Teaching

Over the years George Vosselman taught many courses in photogrammetry, remote sensing and laser scanning, both at undergraduate and graduate level. He gave guest lectures, tutorials and courses at universities and conferences in many countries around the world. From 1999 till 2002 he was programme director for the BSc and MSc study in Geodetic Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. Since 2015 he is chair of the ITC Examination Board.

Research interests

The research of his chair group at ITC focuses on the utilisation of advancements in sensor technology for the efficient production of large scale geo-information. George Vosselman published over 220 journal and conference papers on photogrammetry and laser scanning. His fields of expertise include quality analysis of laser altimetry data, strip adjustment, segmentation and classification of point clouds, 3D building and road modelling from both point clouds and imagery, and model driven analysis of aerial and industrial imagery. George Vosselman is author/editor of chapter 6 of the ASPRS Manual of Photogrammetry. Together with Hans-Gerd Maas he edited the text book Airborne and Terrestrial Laser Scanning (Whittles Publishing, 2010). Since 2000 he has been chairing several ISPRS working groups on point cloud processing.

Projects

George Vosselman was involved in various consulting projects on modernisation of education and geo-information production in Asian and African countries. In Europe he has been consultant for several companies and government agencies on issues related to quality control of laser scanning and photogrammetry projects. Software developed for processing point clouds has been transferred to several companies in the Netherlands and Germany.
