of California, Davis (UCD)
Center of Excellence
(1) Foster scientific advances in core technologies and content
applications in the space/remote sensing/environmental sciences.
improved education and outreach in space technology and related
the speed and effectiveness of the transfer of technology
and other innovations to industry that will enhance the economic
competitiveness of California industries.
of Excellence at UC Davis has developed a campus-wide research
and development facility for basic and applied research leading
to new and improved environmental and agricultural remote
sensing applications. The center provides a facility for image
processing of remotely sensed data and expertise in the applications
of these technologies. Collaborations are established between
CIPIC, ICE, Integrated Watershed Center, and other environmental
research centers on campus in order to leverage campus programs
and enhance visibility of UC programs. The Center fosters
interactions between experts in remote sensing and its applications
through research opportunities, seminars, and other opportunities.
The facility enhances faculty competitiveness in interdisciplinary
environmental research by providing resources for remote sensing
research and a site for expertise. The Center supports agricultural
applications of remote sensing data and development of precision
agriculture applications using remote sensing.
of Excellence enhances existing research programs and expands
teaching programs in GIS and Remote Sensing and supports recruitment
for faculty positions in landscape studies, ecosystem science,
agronomy and watershed hydrology by providing a Center for
research and collaboration. The Center assists education and
training for faculty and students in remote sensing technologies
through internships, scholarships, and other research opportunities
and through sponsorship of seminars, symposia and other modes
of academic training. The Center closely coordinates with
education and outreach programs to develop education and training
opportunities. It promotes collaboration with CalSpace/CaSGC
Centers of Excellence on other campuses, especially the Center
at UC Santa Barbara, allowing cross-campus coordination and
development of synergy among UC space-technology programs.
