Leica Geosystems’ GIS & Mapping Division has named Sorin Popescu, Ph.D. Candidate, Department of Forestry at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University as the recipient of the ASPRS 2002 LH Systems Internship, an eight-week intensive program open to graduate students of photogrammetry and remote sensing, designed to leverage the participants’ existing research.

The announcement was made at the Awards Luncheon at the 2002 ASPRS-ACSM Annual Conference and XXII FIG Congress in Washington, DC, on 24 April.

The internship is presented by ASPRS: The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society, with funding provided by LH Systems, provider of the core Airborne Data Acquisition product line for Leica Geosystems’ GIS & Mapping Division, headquartered in Atlanta. A wholly owned subsidiary of Leica Geosystems, LH Systems is a pioneer and one of the leaders in aerial photography, remote sensing, and photogrammetry.

The program will provide Popescu an opportunity to carry out a small research project of his own choice, or work on an existing project as part of a team. Depending on the project, he will work in San Diego, Denver, Atlanta, Heerbrugg, or elsewhere with Leica Geosystems personnel. The internship consists of a stipend of $2,500 plus an allowance for travel and living expenses for the period of the internship. At the conclusion, Popescu will provide ASPRS with a final report of his research accomplishment.
