Canada: PCI Geomatics has signed an Education Alliance agreement with Arabian Gulf University in Manama, in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The agreement was signed in late 2013 with the cooperation of GISTEC, PCI Geomatics’ exclusive reseller in the region. Under the terms of the agreement, PCI Geomatics will provide software licenses to support teaching and research conducted at the university. The agreement formally declares Arabian Gulf University as a center of excellence in training and education in the fields of remote sensing and geomatics, while establishing the university as a regional center for training in these areas.
“This agreement is an important step in a series of strategic partnerships with the private sector and government bodies driven by the increased interest in GIS and remote sensing. Science and technology has become one of the foundations of geomatics development and a mainstay in the decision-making process in the production, organization and management of spatial infrastructure,” said Dr Ali Batai, Assistant Professor in remote sensing and geomatics at Arabian Gulf University.
