Instructions to authors
1. Scientific Articles
The Journal of the German Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (Deutsche Gesellschaft für
Photogrammetrie, Fernerkundung und Geoinformation e.V. - DGPF)
Photogrammetrie • Fernerkundung • Geoinformation (PFG) publishes "Scientific Articles" of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and geoinformation as well as "Reports from Research and Practice" and "Reports and Communications".
Manuscripts and correspondence are to be sent to the editor:
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Kresse
Brodaer Straße 2, 17033 Neubrandenburg, Germany
News and Correspondence:
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Stefan Hinz

Institut für Photogrammetrie und Fernerkundung
Englerstr. 7, 76131 Karlsruhe, Germany
2. ManuscriptsManuscripts should not exceed a limit of 10 printed pages and should comply with international standards of photogrammetry und remote sensing. They can be submitted in English or German. Before scientific articles are accepted and printed, they are subject to a blind review, usually by three reviewers. The manuscripts should be prepared as Microsoft Word documents according to the template which can be found at www.dgpf.de/Autorenhinweise.
3. FiguresFigures (diagrams, images, maps, sketches) and tables should be suitable for the final format (62 mm one-column or 130 mm two-columns).
4. RightsBy submitting a manuscript to PFG, the author affirms that it has and will not be published in this or a similar form elsewhere. By accepting the manuscript the right for reproduction and distribution is given to Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photogrammetrie, Fernerkundung und Geoinformation (DGPF).
The authors are responsible for the contents of the submitted work. Standardisation of notations, format and minor improvements are done by the editor.
5. Design of Manuscript
LanguageAlso submissions from non-native speakers have to be grammatically correct.
StructureTitle (short and concise), first and last name together with place of residence, up to five Keywords, Zusammenfassung/ Summary (in English and German, preceded with the title of the article), Text (Introduction stating the problem, accomplishments, results), Acknowledgments, References.
FiguresLine drawings, diagrams, images, and sketches shall be labeled figures (e.g. Fig. 1:), while data and results of measurements should be presented in tables (e.g. Tab. 1:). Characters in drawings should not be smaller than 1 mm. The minimum resolution is 300 dpi for images and 1000 dpi for line drawings.
6. Images on Front PageThe front page of the journal is available for advertisement for companies and institutions. Prices are available on request. Please submit proposals to the editors.
