Atman Prins banner


Atman completed his Bsc Honours in Geoinformatics in 2016, with his research focusing on using LiDAR data, template matching and region growing in order to count trees in a forestry plantation. In 2017 he started with his Msc in Geoinformatics and continued on with his research using LiDAR data. However, for his Msc research he focused on classifying crops using machine learning, LiDAR data and data fusion with spectral data. While he was busy with his MSc, he was employed part time at the CGA. In 2019 he was employed as a full-time GIS & EO analyst while finishing his MSc. His current responsibilities include scripting, point cloud and orthomosaic creation from drone imagery and analysis of very high resolution imagery.
