Congalton Honored as 2007 ASPRS Fellow

February 14, 2007

Russell Congalton, professor of remote sensing and GIS in the Department of Natural Resources, has been named a 2007 ASPRS Fellow Award winner by the American Society for Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing (ASPRS). The ASPRS designation of Fellow is conferred on active Society members who have demonstrated professional excellence and performed excep­tional service in advancing the science and use of the mapping sciences (photogrammetry, remote sensing, surveying, geographic information systems, and related disciplines). He will receive the award – one of three 2007 ASPRS Fellow awards -- in May at the ASPRS 2007 Annual Conference in Tampa, Florida.

An active member of the ASPRS since 1979, Congalton has been awarded four ASPRS Presidential Citations for Meritorious Service (1987, 1989, 1990, 1992) and an ASPRS Outstanding Service Award (2000). Since 1997, Congalton has been the national workshop coordinator responsible for organizing and overseeing all educational workshops at APSRS conferences. In addition, he served as president of ASPRS in 2004-05 and as the ASPRS delegate to the ISPRS Congress in Istanbul in 2004. He was the primary force behind rejuvenating the New England Region of ASPRS and has served as region secretary/treasurer since 2004.

Founded in 1934, ASPRS is an international professional organization of 6,000 geospatial data professionals. ASPRS is devoted to advancing knowledge and improving understanding of the mapping sciences to promote responsible application of photogrammetry, remote sensing, geographic information systems and supporting technologies.
