The last week of December is a good time to reflect back on the many accomplishments achieved throughout the year. We have several exciting stories involving innovative use of products from the Power Portfolio. Let’s take a look back at the interesting projects and research from 2017.
Landslide Detection Made Easier with Remote Sensing
Landslides can destroy ecosystems, damage property and even cause injury or death. What if we had the ability to detect the amount of damage caused, or even know the likelihood of landslide phenomena before one occurs? Fortunately, that technology does exist, and it’s available now. Read how GEOSYSTEMS HELLAS uses satellite images and remote sensing to improve landslide detection and verification in Macedonia, Greece.
Hexagon Geospatial U Student Contest in Russia
Learn about the efforts of the Hexagon Geospatial U Program in Russia. Hexagon Geospatial provided Russian universities with Professional licenses to ERDAS IMAGINE and GeoMedia at no cost for one year. They also held a special competition for students interested in studying software products with the grand prize being free admission to INTERGEO 2017 in Berlin.
Congratulating Geospatial Education Contest Honorable Mention Dr. Ariel Blanco
Learn about Geospatial Education Contest Honorable Mention, Ariel Blanco and his innovative research using ERDAS IMAGINE. Ariel and the University of the Philippines, along with the SRA conducted a research and development project entitled “Development of the Sugar Regulatory Administration Yield Estimation System for Sugarcane (SRA YESS) Project” through the UP Training Center for Applied Geodesy and Photogrammetry.
Furthering Education through the DigitalGlobe Foundation
DigitalGlobe Foundation grant recipient, Michael Armand P. Canilao uses ERDAS IMAGINE to manipulate imagery of the Lepanto Gold Network in Luzon. Michael conducted his research as part of our partnership with the DigitalGlobe Foundation, using high-resolution satellite imagery from DigitalGlobe and Hexagon Geospatial software. His research examines the Lepanto Gold Network in Northwestern Luzon using remote sensing applications.
Congratulating Geospatial Education Contest Honorable Mention Igor Sereda
Learn about Geospatial Education Contest Honorable Mention, Igor Sereda and his innovative research using Hexagon Geospatial technology. Igor’s research objective was to study remote sensing services for precision agriculture. He conducted his research in an experimental maize field near Novobeisugskaya village in Krasnodar region, one of the most productive agricultural areas in Russia.
