Project Period: February 2008–January 2011
The Alberta Terrestrial Imaging Center (ATIC) in Lethbridge is creating new software that translates photographic images of land into real-time data and historical information. This provides better information to those involved in the research and decision-making of land use. The benefits of the program are marketable worldwide. The software will monitor and assess the characteristics of rangelands and wetlands using satellites. It will monitor environmental changes and track the impact of development over time. Sales of the new software will help sustain the not-for-profit centre's training and applied-research programs.
