The 2005 Photogrammetric Award (Fairchild) is awarded to Prof. Dr.-Ing Wolfgang Förstner in honor of his major contributions to the science of photogrammetry, by helping to establish the increasingly important ties between photogrammetry, digital image processing, and computer vision. The award will be presented during the upcoming ASPRS 2005 Annual Conference in Baltimore, Maryland, March 7-11.
The Photogrammetric Award (Fairchild) was established in 1943 to stimulate the development of the art of aerial photogrammetry in the United States. This award was originally sponsored by the Loral Fairchild Corporation and is now supported by Lockheed Martin. It includes an engraved plaque.
