About Prof. Deren Li

Prof. Deren Li is a scientist in the field of photogrammetry and remote sensing. Professor Li received his doctorate from the University of Stuttgart in 1985 and an honorary doctorate from ETH Zürich in 2008. He enjoys dual memberships of both the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. He is also a member of the International Eurasia Academy of Sciences and the International Academy of Astronautics. In 2012, the ISPRS made him an Honorary Member, which is their highest honor and which they limit to a maximum of ten people at any time. Prof. Deren Li has also held the position of President of Wuhan Technical University of Surveying and Mapping, and Director of the State Key Laboratory of Information Engineering in Surveying, Mapping and Remote Sensing (LIESMARS). At present, he is the Chairman of the academic committees for both Wuhan University and LIESMARS, and Director of the Collaborative Innovation Center of Geospatial Technology. GSIS was founded by Prof. Deren Li, the journal’s Editor-in-Chief, in 1998. Since, that time, and driven by the societal needs and improvements in geo-spatial information technology, we have witnessed a great increase in research and development, technology transfer, and engineering activities worldwide since the turn into the 21st Century.
