Deep learning for the extraction of DTMs from point clouds generated by dense matching
George Vosselman 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), and the Karl Kraus Medal (2012). 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. As of 2012 he is head of the Department of Earth Observation Science.
