Allison Howard and Sergio Bernardes won the ERDAS Imagine-DigitalGlobe 2012 Geospatial Challenge with their work on capuchin monkey route modeling, using the Maximum Entropy model and subpixel analysis based on a WorldView-2 image. The research was presented at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, in Sacramento.
The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) selected Ryan Lash and Shadrock Roberts to receive the prestigious USGIF Award in 2011. According to USGIF, the organization awarded $94,000 to 20 students studying in geospatial intelligence related fields. “This is the largest single-year scholarship total awarded by USGIF to date,” said Max Baber, USGIF director of Academic Programs. “USGIF is dedicated to advancing geospatial intelligence, and we are progressing towards a target of $100,000 invested annually in scholarships to further support development of the next generation of GEOINT professionals.”
Marguerite Madden was awarded the SAIC Estes Memorial Teaching Award by ASPRS. Marguerite Madden is a Professor of Geography and the Director of the Center for Geospatial Research at the University of Georgia, where she has been a part of the Center since 1990. She received a BA and an MA in Biology from the State University of New York, and her PhD in Ecology from the University of Georgia.
Sergio Bernardes, currently a PhD student with the Department of Geography at the University of Georgia has been selected to receive the 2011 William A. Fischer Memorial Scholarship, from the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. Bernardes is being presented this award in recognition of his significant academic accomplishments, very impressive record of research and publications, and teaching and outreach through the application of remote sensing and GIS technologies.
Shadrock Roberts received the 2011 Z/I Imaging Award. Roberts was presented this award by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing in recognition of his academic achievements and the outstanding nature of his current research and future career goals for developing and implementing new and innovative uses of Earth imaging techniques for real world applications. Roberts is pursuing his PhD through the University of Georgia’s (UGA) Department of Geography.
Sergio Bernardes received the highly prized 2009 Robert N. Colwell Memorial Award from ASPRS. The award comprises of a five thousand dollars check, a certificate and a subscription to the Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing journal.
Byungyun Yang received a GeoEye Foundation Award, consisting of image data for his research.
Byungyun Yang passed the certification exam to be an ASPRS Provisionally Certified Photogrammetrist.
Byungyun was also selected to be part of the ASPRS Student Assistantship Program. This assistantship covered part of the costs associated with his participation in the 2009 ASPRS Annual Conference, in Baltimore.
The UGA Chapter of
ASPRS is deeply saddened by the loss of Dr. Chor Pang Lo, a professor
at the Department of Geography at UGA, that has much contributed to the
Sheika Aragundi, Hunter Allen and Sergio Bernardes, members of the UGA Chapter of ASPRS, are the receipients of all three 2008 ASPRS/GeoEye awards.
Hwahwan Kim and Sergio Bernardes were selected to be part of the ASPRS Student Assistantship Program. This assistantship covered part of the costs associated with the participation of both members of our Chapter in the 2008 ASPRS Annual Conference, in Portland.
Sheika Aragundi and Sergio Bernardes were two of the recipients of the 2008 Graduate Field Research Summer Travel Awards/Tinker Award from the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute. These awards will contribute to cover their costs in acquiring data for their research during the Summer 2008 in Equador and Brazil, respectively.
The Center for
Remote Sensing and Mapping Science at UGA (CRMS) just became a Sustaining
