Dr. Bo Wu was selected as the third place recipients of the 2014 John I. Davidson President's Award for Practical Papers by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS). The John I. Davidson Award was established in 1979 to encourage and commend individuals who publish papers of practical or applied value in photogrammetric engineering & remote sensing (PE&RS).
Dr. Wu’s paper entitled “A Flexible Method for Zoom Lens Calibration and Modeling Using a Planar Checkerboard” was published in the June 2013 issue of the society’s journal Photogrammetric Engineering & Remote Sensing (PE&RS). The paper describes a zoom lens calibration and modeling method offering better flexibility and feasibility, which facilitates the use of zoom-lens camera systems in various applications such as robotic exploration, hazard monitoring, traffic monitoring, and security surveillance.
