Prof. Dr. Nicholas C. Coops is professor for remote sensing and the Canada research chair in remote sensing at the University of British Columbia.

Hexagon, the parent company of Leica Geosystems and Z/I Imaging, selected two recipients for this year’s Carl Pulfrich Award: Prof. Dr. Nicholas C. Coops, Vancouver, and Prof. Dr. Norbert Haala, Stuttgart.

Professor Coops has made outstanding contributions to solve mapping problem in biodiversity, especially in using remote sensing technologies for vegetation growth and canopy characterization.

Professor Haala has made huge impacts to further develop photogrammetric restitutions, in particular in the areas of 3-D city modeling, dense image matching and the use of remotely piloted aircraft systems.
The Carl Pulfrich Award recognizes cutting-edge  innovations and developments in geodesy, photogrammetry and the Earth sciences. The academic Earth imaging community was encouraged to submit nominations for the biennial award. Nominees were considered on the basis of experience, activities in photogrammetry and remote sensing, and contributions to the advancement of all aspects of the Earth imaging field. Also considered was applied work involving hardware systems, software solutions or innovative service activities.

Prof. Dr. Norbert Haala is associate professor at the Institute for Photogrammetry, University of Stuttgart.
