related technologies and issues. Therefore, the
1SPRS certainly encourages the creation of
creative and entertaining webpages that will
appeal to a larger audience.
D. A downloadable webpage that can be used as a
basic template upon which a webpage can be
built will be provided at the 1SPRS Website:
III. Web Page Design/Content
A. Clear and Understandable. All ISPRS webpages
are to be clearly and logically organized, so that
their purpose and information can be easily and
quickly understood. The information should be
concise, accurate and laid out simply. Testing of
the webpage by requesting all ISPRS officers to
read and comment on it before posting on the
WWW is recommended.
B. Graphic and non-graphical. All ISPRS
webpages shall be provided in both a graphics-
included format and in a non-graphical format.
This should be done to accommodate those
users who may not be able to easily view or
download advanced or graphics-heavy
C. Logo. While ISPRS seeks to minimize webpage
design restrictions, all ISPRS webpages should
clearly and prominently display the official
ISPRS logo on every webpage (downloadable
from www.geod.ethz.ch/~andre/sample.html).
D. ISPRS Affiliation. Besides the ISPRS logo, a
reference to the ISPRS and the function of the
Working Group or Technical Commission
should be stated clearly at the front of the web
E. Images. Since image acquisition, management
and processing is the main line of ISPRS, an
array of images that demonstrate ISPRS
activities should be included where necessary
(although for webpages with numerous images,
or very advanced webpage options, non-
graphical options shall be provided - see IIIB
above). However, images with lengthy potential
downloading times (especially to users in
countries with weaker Internet or
telecommunications links) could perhaps be
provided in an FTP format.
F. Hypertext Links. All ISPRS webpages must
include hypertext links to the ISPRS Homepage
and to other ISPRS Technical Commissions.
Links to associated sister- organizations could
be provided as well on the webpage.
G. Design Ideas. ISPRS webpages should include
the following items:
1. All webpages should include the name
and address of the Web Master, as well
as the date of the last update to the
2. Highlighting of new items on the
webpage clearly and prominently (the
placing of a "What's New" item at the
start of each webpage is desirable;
3. Links to pages related to interest areas
of the ISPRS Member Organizations,
Technical Commission, and Working
4. Coordination between all Working
Groups in a particular Commission with
regard to similarities in webpage design
or form is encouraged.
H. ISPRS Member Organizations Webpages
should contain the following: names,
pictures/photographs, phone numbers, fax
numbers, postal and email addresses of Member
Organizations, Commission and Working Group
officers; important activities of the Member;
necessary hyperlinks including to ISPRS
homepage and to relevant Working Group
homepages; and an email subscription system
(list server).
I. Technical Commission Webpages should
contain at least the following: the name and
Terms Of Reference (TOR) of the Technical
Commission; names, pictures/photographs,
phone numbers, fax numbers, and email
addresses of all Commission and Working
Group officers; Symposiums and
Commission/WG events with on-line
registration forms; and hyperlinks to the ISPRS,
Working Group homepages and other important
J. Working Group Webpages should contain at
least the following: the name and Terms Of
Reference (TOR) of the Working Group; names,
pictures/photographs, phone numbers, fax
numbers, and emails of the Working Group
chair, co-chair and members; dates and
locations of Working Group meetings and
workshops with on-line registration forms; and
necessary hyperlinks.
IV. Technical Issues
A. Pathnames. The use of relative or absolute
pathnames to link documents or to connect files
should be considered for its practicality and user
B. Browser. Webpages should be designed and
updated for the most popular browsers in use at
the time. The use of a good and fast browser
facilitates a quicker acquisition of images.
C. Links. Links should be checked periodically and
updated. Each page should have a link at its end
to the top of the homepage.
D. Bulk Data. Documents made available in
postscript format should be compressed first and
an indication of their approximate size and how
the data was compressed should be given. A
decoder should be made available when needed.
