The Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute (ABMI) was established in 2007 as a not-for-profit society, non-regulatory, arms-length Institute that uses a federated and distributed service model, delivered jointly by the University of Alberta, the Royal Alberta Museum, and Alberta Innovates Technology Futures. The ABMI mandate is to operate science-based biodiversity monitoring program and open-access services for the province of Alberta.
The mission of the ABMI is to support natural resource decision-making by providing relevant, timely and credible open-access scientific knowledge on the state of Alberta’s environment. To fulfill its mission, the ABMI is committed to scientific credibility and innovation, as well as knowledge translation to increase “bio-literacy” in the public.
The ABMI will use the PHOTOMOD Software to produce open-access, non-commercial products to be publicly delivered to student, academia, government, general public and stakeholders. Specifically, the software will be used to develop the following:
• Province-wide, high resolution, historical orthophoto mosaics to use as a human footprint digitization source;
• Stereo models from historical imagery to map wetlands and topography to reference conditions;
• High density point clouds from aerial photographs to analyze human footprint regeneration.
PHOTOMOD education license was delivered by Racurs’ dealer in NA – boodmoe company. The Education Support Program is offered for educational and scientific institutes all around the World. For today more than 50 organizations have joined the Program. We are pleased to welcome Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute to be a part of the Program.
