Carl Pulfrich Award

The prestigous award for recognizing cutting-edge innovations
The Carl Pulfrich Award is a prestigous award for recognizing cutting-edge innovations, hard- and software developments and integrated systems design in geodesy, photogrammetry and the Earth sciences. Launched in 1968 it is announced biennially and attracts nowadays nominations and recommendations for candidates from all over the world. Originally launched by Carl Zeiss, Oberkochen, then re-launched by Z/I Imaging and Intergraph, the award is now sponsored by newly founded Hexagon Geosystems Geospatial Solutions Division. The donation of this award to recognize and motivate scientists for more than four decades is gratefully acknowledged.
 

Bringing together the worlds most well known Leica Geosystems and Z/I Imaging airborne sensor brands, Hexagon is pleased to continue the tradition of promoting outstanding scientific, application-oriented design and/or manufacturing activities in the field of photogrammetry, remote sensing and earth imaging applications.

The biennial award and donation is intended to honor the memory of Dr. Carl Pulfrich, a member of the scientific staff at Carl Zeiss from 1890 to 1927, during which time he directed the design of the first stereo photogrammetric and surveying instruments from Zeiss.

The academic earth imaging community is encouraged to submit nominations for this prestigious award. Nominees will be 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. Applied work involving hardware systems, software solutions, or innovative service activities will be considered as well.

The award recipient will receive a monetary gift or an amount deemed suitable by the award council and will be presented the distinguished Carl Pulfrich Award Plaque during the Photogrammetric Week (PhoWo) taking place in Stuttgart, Germany.
