Recognition for GIS Innovation - 17/05/2010

Dr Richard Mather, lecturer at the Department of New Media and Technologies at Buckinghamshire New University (UK), has been awarded The Institution of Analysts and Programmers (IAP) Prize for Software Engineering.

Dr Mather has worked at Bucks since 1996 and his IAP award was recognition for his MSc dissertation, completed at the University of Oxford. The dissertation, "A Workflow Application and XML Datastructure for Processing Geo-referenced Images", is of particular interest to the GIS, remote-sensing and land-management communities. It allows the automation of image processing, in contrast to existing techniques, which are often ad hoc and circumstance-specific.

"Bearing that in mind, I really appreciate the fact that the IAP has accredited work in a subject area that is relatively new to me."

The IAP's Marketing Manager, Tom Hohenberg, was joined by Bucks' Pro-Vice Chancellor Chris Kemp in presenting a certificate to Dr Mather, marking his achievement, AT THE University's Campus in High Wycombe.
