Following an incredibly successful 2016 for the Geological Remote Sensing Group, 2017 has started at a similarly active pace with the news that Canadian-based supplier of geo-imaging software solutions, PCI Geomatics has decided to join as a Corporate Member.
PCI Geomatics, a developer of remote sensing and photogrammetric software and systems, opted to join the Geological Remote Sensing Group (GRSG) following recent interactions with the group’s members in Europe and gaining an understanding of the benefits that being involved with such an active organisation will bring.

In response, Stewart Wyseman of PCI explained why his company had decided the join the GRSG; “We look forward to reaching the geologic community though the excellent communication channels established through the GRSG, its newsletters and in-person events. PCI Geomatics has a long tradition of supporting students and we look forward to collaborating with the GRSG to assist with student research in the field of remote sensing applications for geology.”
