The GAIA Award is given to a person working in private business, government or education to recognize the remarkable contribution in the field of geomatics in Quebec. It was at the Montreal Convention Centre as part of the 2016 Geomatics Symposium, held by the Montreal section of the Canadian Institute of Geomatics (CIG), that Mr. Levasseur was given this award.
Effigis is proud to annonce that it will be a bronze level partner at the 2016 Geomatics, hosted by the Canadian Institute of Geomatics (CIG), which will take place on October 19 and 20 at Montréal's Palais des Congrès. This year, various facets will be displayed, notably those pertaining to geomarketing, applications for drones and emerging technologies. Effigis is a key player in geomatic industries; come meet our team at kiosks 38 and 39.
The upsurge in the use of sensors installed in pilot-less devices, known as drones, to acquire aerial images has given new life to photogrammetric applications. It was not so long ago that these applications were reserved for specialists who had mastered the mathematical principles of camera modelling, image block aerotriangulation and geometric correction.
Using two SENTINEL-1A radar images acquired on March 27 and April 20, 2016, and differential interferometry (DInSAR), the Effigis Earth Observation team measured the ground displacement that took place following this earthquake.
High-resolution satellite images acquired in urgent mode can be used to plan and manage interventions during a natural disaster (forest fire, earthquake, flood).
Using Landsat 7 and 8 satellite images, we see the extent of the natural disaster that has been raging since May 1, 2016 at Fort McMurray (Alberta).
Landsat-7 and 8 satellite images allow to see the extent of this natural disaster.
His presentation is entitled ''Shielding Integrity Testing for Home Certification Program'' and will be held at the Mississauga Convention Center.
By obtaining this project, Effigis consolidates its position as the major pole inspection service supplier in Quebec and one of the main ones in Canada.
Precision Agriculture: Moving to “Customized” Nitrogen Fertilization in Order to Maximize Economic and Environmental Gains
By wanting to avoid performance loss due to nitrogen deficiencies, current practices favour overfertilization, which leads to unnecessary costs as well as serious environmental problems.
