Congratulations to Prof. Hubo Cai, 2nd place co-recipient of the 2010 ESRI Award for Best Scientific Paper in Geographic Information Systems

Congratulations to Prof. Hubo Cai, 2nd place recipient of the 2010 ESRI Award for Best Scientific Paper in Geographic Information Systems for his co-authored paper titled, "Accuracy Evaluation and Sensitivity Analysis of Estimating 3-D Road Centerline Length Using LIDAR and NED." Written by Prof. Cai and William Rasdorf, this paper proposes an approach to model transportation linear objects in a 3-D space and estimate their 3-D lengths using planimetric road centerline data and elevation data (LIDAR and NED), and quantify the accuracy. The award is presented by the American Society for Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing.
