PCI Geomatics announced it has signed an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with the AGH University of Science and Technology, located in Krakow, Poland. This agreement recognizes AGH University as a leading European organization which is actively developing curricula and offering opportunities for students and researchers to advance techniques that make use of modern remote sensing software (Geomatica and GXL) to process earth observation imagery.
Under the MOU, PCI Geomatics and AGH University will seek to collaborate to develop directed research projects, internships, and the development of innovative methods to process remotely sensed images through PCI’s Geomatica and GXL software.
PCI’s desktop software suite, Geomatica, is widely used during the teaching and training of students around the world, and one of the key objectives of this MOU is to offer similar practical training and research opportunities for remote sensing students in Poland.
InvestGIS, PCI’s local partner located in Krakow was instrumental in helping to establish the MOU between the two organizations. “We are very pleased to see that AGH University will be working closely with PCI Geomatics under this new MOU. In Poland, there is a need to develop the next generation of scientists and applications experts who can develop innovative methods to work with remotely sensed data which is increasingly available, and can be used to develop practical, science based applications that help address critical needs in our country such as disaster management, agriculture, and many other applications” said Dr. Slawomir Mikrut.
