RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, Canada—March 01, 2012: PCI Geomatics, a world-leading developer of geoimaging software and systems, announced today that it has signed an Education Alliance agreement with Northeastern University (NEU), located in Boston, MA.
In order to promote cooperation and knowledge exchange, PCI Geomatics has created the ‘PCI Geomatics Education Alliance Program’ designed to create strong reciprocal relationships with select educational institutions. Under the terms of the Alliance Program, PCI Geomatics provides software licenses to support teaching and research activities in exchange for insights into the work being conducted at the University with PCI Geomatics software. The program fosters communication between the University and PCI scientists, and provides an outlet to the commercial world, highlighting the work conducted at the University using PCI Geomatics software.
“PCI greatly values the contributions of Universities and other educational institutions to advance our collective knowledge of remote sensing science and applications,” said Brad Schmidt, VP of Sales and Marketing at PCI Geomatics. “The purpose of the Education Alliance Program is to support the education sector, which acts as a beacon for teaching, research, and innovation.”
“We are pleased to have been selected to participate in PCI’s Education Alliance Program,” said Dr. Cordula Robinson, Academic Specialist in the College of Professional Studies (CPS) at Northeastern University. “Geomatica is an excellent teaching aid in conveying the fundamentals of Remote Sensing and Digital Image Processing to our Graduate students. In addition, it offers excellent tools for customization that are leveraged for research in directed studies. We have a wide variety of students using this technology through our online course offerings.”
PCI Geomatics has implemented other Educational Alliance agreements recently, and aims to have regional representation in all parts of the world.
