Papers for the international symposium Commission VI
Sitek, Zbigniew

Answering Dr. 3chinidt~1' 1 ;ij.kenburg

Paris last year and told me that if he was desirous to ask ISP for
co-operation, he was somewhat afraid that ISP will not ask ICA for a
reciprocal co-operation. The presence and paper of Dr. Schmidt-Falken-
burg, here in Krakow, at a meeting of an ISP technical commission are

aims show overlaps, where we can and must co-operate. Other ones are
completely different : non-topographic and non-cartographic applications
of photogrammetry are an example.
