Intergraph presents award at 50th Photogrammetry Week in Stuttgart, Germany.

Intergraph Corporation, Huntsville, Ala., presented the Carl Pulfrich Award at the 50th Photogrammetry Week in Germany to Li Zhang, Ph.D., from China. The award honors the memory of Dr. Carl Pulfrich, a member of the scientific staff at Carl Zeiss from 1890 to 1927, during which time he directed the design of the first stereo photogrammetric and surveying instruments from Zeiss. Z/I Imaging(R) LTD, an Intergraph company, sponsors the award to promote outstanding scientific, application-oriented design and/or manufacturing activities in the field of photogrammetry and remote sensing, including earth imaging applications. As a recognized leader in the photogrammetry industry, Intergraph technology enables customers to establish a completely digital workflow to meet the challenges that photogrammetrists face in today's daily business challenges.

Dr. Mostafa Madani, chief photogrammetrist, Intergraph Security, Government & Infrastructure said, "As the Chairman of the 2005 Carl Pulfrich Award Council I am honored to present this award to such a worthy nominee. I am proud to honor the memory of one of the founding fathers among the earth imaging community and Carl Pulfrich was a man devoted to expanding the boundaries of photogrammetry. This award underpins Intergraph's long-standing commitment to the earth imaging and photogrammetric industry and the customers we serve."
