Upcoming funding opportunities from GeoConnections

cgdiThe renewed GeoConnections program will be releasing a number of opportunities for project funding, beginning in the next few weeks and continuing over the coming months and years. Opportunities will be announced over time for all Canadian Geospatial Data Infrastructure (CGDI) stakeholders: end-users, content suppliers, technology developers, national information systems operators, and other new and potential users.

The first Announcement of Opportunity will be released shortly and is intended for the development of CGDI applications that support decision making within one or more of four key areas (sustainable development and the environment, Aboriginal issues, public health, and public safety). While other opportunities will be released over time, based on a CGDI user-needs assessment that is currently underway, this initial “fast-track” opportunity will engage end-users who are ready to apply for co-funded projects now. Although geomatics companies cannot apply directly, they may partner with end-user applicant organizations.

Information, on what opportunities are coming up in the near future and approximately when they will be released, will be posted before long on the GeoConnections opportunities page.

(Norcross,GA, 6 October, 2014) – Leica Geosystems’ RCD30 Penta Oblique system is now available with new optics. Compared to the previous configuration, which consists of lenses with 50 mm focal length for nadir and 80 mm for oblique images, the camera isnow available with 80 mm and 150 mm focal length respectively.  In combination with the new 80 MP CCD sensor, the RCD30 nowprovides data with even more detail. These new features make the RCD30 the only oblique system able to acquire 4-channel RGBNmultispectral data with 10 centimeter Ground Sampling Distance (GSD) from an altitude of 3,000 meters. No other camera on the market today offers these performance parameters. Compared to other systems, users can fly higher and achieve the same high resolution. […]
