Carl Pulfrich Award 2015 goes to Dr. Christoph Strecha

The Leica Geosystems Geospatial Solutions Division is very pleased to announce that the Carl Pulfrich Award 2015 has been awarded to Dr. Christoph Strecha. With developing algorithms in the areas of feature detection and 3D reconstructions using computer vision (CV) and UAV photogrammetry, Strecha has significantly influenced theory and practice alike. The Carl Pulfrich Award is a prestigious award for honouring cutting-edge innovations and developments in geodesy, photogrammetry and the Earth sciences. The academic Earth imaging community was encouraged to submit nominations for the biennial award. Nominees were considered on the basis of experience, activities in field of photogrammetry and remote sensing, and contributions to the advancement of all aspects of the Earth imaging field. Strecha is a physicist and holds a doctorate in the field of computer vision. In 2012, he founded Pix4D Sa based in Lausanne, Switzerland.
