55th Annual Meeting of the Western Division of the Canadian Association of Geographers (WDCAG-2013)

The 55th Annual Meeting of the Western Division of the Canadian Association of Geographers (WDCAG-2013) will be held at the University of Lethbridge, 7-9 March 2013.

WDCAG meetings serve as an annual gathering place for geographers from Alberta, British Columbia, the Northwest and Yukon Territories and the northwestern U.S. states, to share recent advancements in the discipline. Many of the WDCAG meeting attendees have traditionally been students, and we think this year’s conference will again be an ideal venue for undergraduate and graduate students to not only attend but also present papers or posters of their research projects. We welcome geographers and those interested in Geography to join us in Lethbridge, for what promises to be an interesting, educational, and fun event.

Aibot X6 uses Leica Nova MultiStation for accurate geospatial data without GNSS

(Norcross, GA /Kassel, Germany, 1 October, 2014) – At this year’s INTERGEO in Berlin, Leica Geosystems and its sister company, Aibotix, will present a solution for accurate positioning of the Aibot X6 without GNSS. The UAV can be tracked accurately with the Leica Nova MultiStation to define the exact position. Using the Aibot X6 together with the Nova MultiStation can inspect top surfaces of aircrafts in hangars, enabling users to rely on its proven functionality without the support of GNSS. The UAV, equipped with Leica Geosystems’ 360° prism, flies over the aircraft and takes high-resolution images of its surface. This solution helps, for example, to ascertainlightning strikes and effectively document […]
