Please join us for the inaugural Dr. Robert Moses PCI Geomatics Lectureship at the Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence. We are excited to welcome Professor LeDrew to speak on big data, decision making and user experience.
The PCI Geomatics Lectureship was created in the spirit of Dr. Moses’ big thinking about the world and inter-relations between technology and society.
PCI Geomatics and York University’s Lassonde School of Engineering continue to collaborate with each other closely as part of their long term partnership to further develop Canadian excellence in remote sensing and geospatial technology development.
Please join us for an evening of fascinating insights about how our digital experiences shape crucial aspects of decision making.
