Award to Honor Outstanding Achievement in Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Earth Imaging

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Feb. 12, 2009 – Intergraph is now accepting nominations for its biennial Carl Pulfrich Award to recognize significant design and manufacturing contributions to the industries of photogrammetry, remote sensing and earth imaging. The award is dedicated to honorees in memory of Dr. Carl Pulfrich, a key member of the scientific team at Carl Zeiss, Inc., who from 1890 to 1927 oversaw the design of the company’s first stereo photogrammetric and surveying instruments. Carl Zeiss, Inc. later teamed with Intergraph to create Intergraph’s Z/I Imaging photogrammetry division.

Professionals in the photogrammetry, remote sensing and earth imaging industries may nominate candidates for the Carl Pulfrich Award, which will be presented during the 52nd annual Photogrammetric Week, Sept. 7-11, 2009, in Stuttgart, Germany. The recipient will be granted a monetary reward of up to $7,500.

“Intergraph has been presenting the Carl Pulfrich award to deserving earth imaging and remote sensing experts since 2001,” said Dr. Mostafa Madani, chief photogrammetrist at Intergraph and chairman of the Carl Pulfrich Award Council. “We are thankful to be able to continue offering the award this year. It is very motivating for Intergraph and our peers in the community to simultaneously honor the memory of a true earth imaging pioneer while recognizing the top contributors of this generation.”

Nominations for the Carl Pulfrich Award must be received by 5 p.m. (CST) on July 1, 2009. For more detailed information on nomination guidelines and procedures, please visit:
