Leica Geosystems and ASPRS Foundation present awards at ASPRS 2005 Annual Conference

During the awards luncheon at the ASPRS 2005 Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, Leica Geosystems GIS & Mapping, LLC, in conjunction with the ASPRS Foundation, presented the 2005 Leica Geosystems Internship and the Leica Geosystems Award for Best Scientific Paper in Remote Sensing.

Ms. Nora Csanyi is the 2005 recipient of The Leica Geosystems Internship, an eight-week internship for graduate students in photogrammetry. Nora will work with Leica Geosystems personnel at a selected Leica Geosystems facility, where she will have an opportunity to carry out a small research project of her own choice, or to work on an existing Leica Geosystems project as part of a team. This internship is presented by ASPRS, with funding provided by Leica Geosystems, and consists of a stipend of $2,500 plus an allowance for travel and living expenses for the period of the internship.

Recipients of the 2005 Leica Geosystems Award for Best Scientific Paper in Remote Sensing include:

· 1st Place: Giles M. Foody for the paper, “Thematic Map Comparison: Evaluating the Statistical Significance of Differences in Classification Accuracy.”
· 2nd Place: Robert L. Huguenin, Mo Hwa Wang, Robert Biehl, Scott Stoodley, and Jeffrey N. Rogers for the paper, “Automated Subpixel Photobathymetry and Water Quality Mapping.”
· 3rd Place: Thomas J. Cova, Paul C. Sutton, and David M. Theobald for the paper, “Exurban Change Detection in Fire-prone Areas with Nighttime Satellite Imagery.”
