Otto von Gruber-Preis der ISPRS für ehemaligen IPIaner Matthias Butenuth

ISPRS Otto von Gruber-Award for former IPI member Matthias Butenuth

The Otto von Gruber-Award 2008 of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) have been presented to the former IPI member Matthias Butenuth. The award recognises a particularly important scientific publication and is regarded as the most important award for young scientists in the area of photogrammetry and remote sensing on a world wide scale; it is presented only every 4 years. Butenuth received the award during the opening session of the ISPRS Congress in Beijing this July.

From August 2002 until September 2007 Matthias Butenuth was a member of IPI. During his PhD studies he developed a new approach for dealing with networks of deformable contour models, so called network snakes. In early 2007 he published a paper on this topic in the renown scientific journal Photogrammetrie-Fernerkundung-Geoinformation; this article was now honoured with the Gruber-Award. In the meantime Matthias Butenuth is a post-doc at TU Munich, were he works on automatic road extraction from digital aerial and satellite images.
