The history of mobile mapping goes back about two decades when The Ohio State University in USA and the University of Calgary in Canada developed the concept of Mobile Mapping Systems (MMS) and consequently built their first prototypes. As technology continued to advance, and more powerful sensors and processing methods became available, the name was changed to Mobile Mapping Technology (MMT) to better reflect on the complexity and to equally include methodology, algorithms, hardware and software components. The first two MMT summer schools were co-organized by the University of Calgary (Canada), Ohio State University (USA), Xiamen University (China) and National Cheng Kung University, and officially supported by ISPRS, IAG, FIG, and ION

The 3rd International Summer School on Mobile Mapping Technology (SS-MMT 2015) (jointed with the 2nd International Symposium on Computer Vision in Remote Sensing) will be hold in 26-30 April 2015 at Xiamen University, Xiamen, China

The main objectives of the SS-MMT 2015 are to discuss new technologies and new applications of MMT and whether we have achieved the full potential of MMS. During the SS-MMT 2015, you will learn new applications such as unmanned vehicular location; new systems such as portable mobile mapping and fully automated direct airborne geo-referencing systems; and new trends such as the integration of mobile phone location services with intelligent GNSS vehicle navigation. International pioneers in the field of MMT will cover a wide range of multidisciplinary topics. They will impart the knowledge and skills of young researcher and professionals working in the area of MMT. It will also provide an excellent opportunity to meet internationally well recognized scholars in mobile mapping communities and young people to strengthen the MMT network
