GeoNumerics actively participates in the International Conference on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in Geomatics, UAV-g 2015

on .

The International Conference on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in Geomatics, the UAV-g 2015, was held in Toronto, ON, Canada in the beginning of September 2015. This was the third edition of this conference devoted to the use of small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the field of Geomatics. The first two editions were held in Zurich and Rostock, respectively.

The contributions of GeoNumerics have been numerous and varied. Dr. Ismael Colomina has been part of the scientific committee in charge of reviewing the conference articles, and has additionally chaired one session. Finally, he participated on the final Panel Discussion held among experts of various fields related to the UAV-g. On the other side, Pere Molina gave an oral presentation of the paper "A method for simultaneous aerial and terrestrial geodata acquisition for corridor mapping" and participated as jury for the posters presented at the congress.

GeoNumerics is glad to announce its participation in the course "UAV Remote Sensing principles" organized by CATUAV that will be held in Collsuspina (Catalonia, Spain) on 1st - 5th June 2015 (3rd edition) and on 8th - 12th June 2015 (4th edition). Dr. Colomina, Chief Scientist Officer at GeoNumerics, will be one of the invited lecturers, in charge of introducing the principles and trends of UAV-based photogrammetry.

"UAV Remote Sensing principles" is a one week course that will give you a broad overview of state of the art remote sensing techniques using UAV aerial imagery. A broad board of top level UAV professionals and researchers has been invited to share their knowledge and experience on a wide variety of UAV and remote sensing related topics. The theory is combined with real applications case studies presented by the professionals that carried them.

GeoNumerics is glad to announce its participation in the course "UAVs: introducción y aplicaciones a la geoinformación y el patrimonio" organized by CTTC with the collaboration of the Instituto Geográfico Nacional (IGN) and sponsored by Geotronics and GeoNumerics. The course will be held at the premises of IGN (Madrid, Spain) on 18th - 20th May 2015. Dr. Colomina, Chief Scientist Officer of GeoNumerics, will be one of the invited lecturers, in charge of the navigation integrity and security aspects.

"UAVs: introducción y aplicaciones a la geoinformación y el patrimonio" will introduce the attendants to the use of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) for geoinformation applications, its components and regulations. The theory will be combined with examples of applications focusing in  photogrammetric applications and the integration of multi-sensor data.

General Administrator of GeoNumerics appointed: welcome to Marta Agudo

on .

Marta Agudo joined GeoNumerics on March 16th as our new General Administrator. Agudo is a welcome addition to our team and brings with her a wealth of experience in geomatic project management and administration.

Ms. Agudo has a strong technical background as she graduated in Mathematics at the University of Barcelona (UB, Barcelona, Spain) and subsequently specialized in remote sensing, as a research assistant and researcher, at the Institute of Geomatics (IG, Castelldefels, Spain). Later on, she joined the company Altamira Information (AI, Barcelona, Spain). Through her period at the IG and AI, Ms. Agudo became and expert in Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) technology and its applications to ground motion monitoring. Later on she joined again the IG where she started her management professional period.
