The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing presented the Photogrammetric Award (Fairchild) to Dr. J. Chris McGlone during the 2004 Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado, May 23-27.

McGlone has made numerous outstanding contributions through his R&D efforts since receiving his MS and PhD from Purdue University. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky. McGlone is presently a senior systems scientist in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University. His career in both industry and academe has been focused on the combination of photogrammetry and computer vision. McGlone is a co-author of the textbook Introduction to Modern Photogrammetry and the editor of the 5th edition of the Manual of Photogrammetry, the standard photogrammetric reference published by ASPRS. He is a member of IEE and ASPRS and has served on several conference programs committees. He is currently secretary of ISPRS Working Group 111/7.

The Photogrammetric Award (Fairchild) was established in 1943 to stimulate the development of the art of aerial photogrammetry in the United States. This award was originally sponsored by the Loral Fairchild Corporation and is now supported by Lockheed Martin. It includes an engraved plaque.
