Leica Geosystems Geospatial Imaging will announce a Center of Excellence in Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing at Rochester Institute of Technology at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26. As a Center of Excellence, the Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science at RIT will receive a major donation of software and technical service, which will be incorporated into their curriculum and research activities.
The software donation will be used in the center’s remote sensing work with the Monroe County Office of Emergency Preparedness and the Department of Homeland Security. The center is currently working with these groups to provide more accurate mapping and location technologies to be used during possible terrorist attacks or national emergencies.
