PCI Geomatics announced that it has extended a Strategic Education Alliance Agreement with Stellenbosch University (SU) for another year. Now entering its second year, this agreement recognizes SU as the sole PCI Technology Centre of Excellence in Remote Sensing and Geomatics in South Africa. PCI’s desktop software suite, Geomatica, is widely used during the teaching and training of the professionally accredited qualification of GeoInformatics at SU. PCI OrthoEngine is used exclusively during the teaching of the second-year GIT 242 Digital Photogrammetry module. The Centre for Geographical Analysis at SU also offers a range of short (one-week) courses to individuals in the industry who cannot register for the full-time SU GeoInformatics programmes. PCI Geomatica is used in the majority of image pre-processing training in both the Introduction to Earth Observation and the Geographical Object Based Image Analysis (GEOBIA) courses. Both courses were offered in 2016 and were well attended.
