Dr. Chor Pang (“C.P.”) Lo

The UGA Chapter of ASPRS is deeply saddened by the loss of Dr. Lo, who passed way on December 30, 2007.

Dr. Lo was Professor of Geography at the University of Georgia, where he had worked since March 1984. He obtained his B.A. (First Class Honors) and M.A. degrees in Geography from the University of Hong Kong in 1963 and 1966, respectively, and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Glasgow, United Kingdom, in 1971. Prior to moving to Athens, Georgia to join the University of Georgia, he was Reader in Geography at the University of Hong Kong.

Dr. Lo’s teaching and research interests included photogrammetry, remote sensing, Geographic Information Systems, and Geography of China, on which he has published seven books and well over 100 papers. He was the recipient of the William A. Owens Award on Creative Research given by the University of Georgia Research Foundation in 2001, the Outstanding Research Medal in Geographic Remote Sensing by the Remote Sensing Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers in 2001, and the Lifetime Research Award and Lifetime Achievement Award by the Southeastern Division of the Association of American Geographers in 2002 and 2005, respectively.

Dr. Lo made expressive contributions to the imaging and geospatial information society. These contributions will be recognized in a special session during the 2008 Annual Conference of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, to be held in Portland from April 28th to May 2nd.
