For his excellent achievements in remote sensing, Prof. Christian Heipke, director of the Institute of Photogrammetry and GeoInformation (IPI), Leibniz Universität Hannover, was made an Honorary Fellow of the Indian Society for Remote Sensing (ISRS) on 24 February 2023 during the ISRS 50th anniversary celebrations in Dehradun.

India has been running an outstanding space programme on a  worldwide scale for more than 30 years, including the development of various remote sensing satellites. With more than 6,000 members, ISRS is one of the globally largest national remote sensing societies.

An Honorary Fellowship is very rarely awarded by ISRS, especially to foreigners; currently there are only 5 non-Indian Honorary Fellows, including Christian Heipke and his predecessor at IPI, Prof Gottfried Konecny.
