Rochester Optical Technology Provides Assistance in Haiti

We want to take a moment to applaud the University of Rochester’s Center for Emerging & Innovative Sciences (CEIS), the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Laboratory for Imaging Algorithms and Systems (LIAS), and especially our close colleagues at Geospatial Systems, Inc. (GSI), for developing the laser sensors and high-definition imaging technology that were used to quickly map the regions of Haiti devastated by the devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010. Aid workers used these maps to find routes to deliver services to people in greatest need. A bit more information is available in the February 25, 2010 NYSTAR Sci*Tech News Bytes newsletter. You can also read Governor Paterson’s letter of commendation.
