Dear Professor Dowman

I am delighted to support the submission by the Melbourne Convention and
Visitors Bureau and the Spatial Sciences Institute to host the Congress of the
International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing 2012 in
Melbourne.

Australia has a proud tradition of scientific and engineering endeavour and
achievement. The work of the spatial sciences sector is of growing importance to
our economy and society.

Australia provides an excellent destination for international congresses.
Melbourne, the capital of Victoria, is home to well over three million people. It is
one of the world’s most multicultural and cosmopolitan cities. The arts,
restaurants, shopping, culture and sport are all key elements of the Melbourne
lifestyle. The city offers many first class facilities, which include the Melbourne
Exhibition and Convention Centre and numerous international hotels. It has
hosted many large international meetings with a level of professionalism and
efficiency which has been commended by all concerned.

I commend Melbourne to you as an ideal location for the Congress of the
International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) 2012.




The Honourable Kevin Rudd MP
Prime Minister of Australia
