PCI Geomatics, Feng Chia University and Lotus (H&R) Inc. Sign International Industry-Academia Cooperation Agreement

RICHMOND HILL, Ontario, Canada—November 13, 2013: ---- PCI Geomatics, a world-leading developer of geoimaging software and systems, announced today that it has signed an Industry-Academia Cooperation Agreement with Feng Chia University (FCU), located in Taichung, Taiwan, and Lotus (H&R) Inc., exclusive reseller of PCI Geomatics technology in Taiwan.

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 as well as provides an outlet to the commercial world highlighting the work conducted at the University using PCI Geomatics software.

PCI Geomatics will be supporting the University through its exclusive distributor to Taiwan, Lotus (H&R) Inc. Lotus will deliver software support services for PCI software via onsite visits and through regular communications, as well as provide assistance with localized training and documentation material in Mandarin.

“PCI is pleased to sign this important agreement in person here in Taichung, as we greatly value the contributions of universities and other educational institutions to advance our collective knowledge of remote sensing science and applications,” said Terance M. Moloney, President and CEO of 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. Lung-Shih Yang, Vice President of Feng Chia University. “Geomatica is an excellent teaching aid in conveying the fundamentals of Remote Sensing and Digital Image Processing. In addition, it offers excellent tools for customization that are leveraged for research in directed studies.”
