ASPRS Awards

ASPRS will present its own awards at Geo Week:

The ASPRS Lifetime Achievement Award (formerly the Honorary Lifetime Achievement Award and the Honorary Member Award) is the highest award an ASPRS member can receive, and there are only 25 living Lifetime Achievement Awardees of the Society at any given time. Candidates are chosen by a Nominating Committee made up of the past five recipients of the award and chaired by the most recent recipient.

 The ASPRS Outstanding Technical Achievement Award is designed to reward the developer[s] of a specific breakthrough technology which causes quantum advances in the practice of photogrammetry, remote sensing or geographic information systems in the United States.

The Estes Memorial Teaching Award, which was inaugurated in 2003 in honor of Professor John E. “Jack” Estes, teacher, mentor, scientist, and friend of ASPRS. Recognizing the important niche this Award occupies in ASPRS, the ASPRS Foundation trustees reallocated a portion of the Foundation’s general-purpose funds to fully endow the Award.  The Estes Award is offered at the $3000 level for the 2022-23 award period.

The Photogrammetric (Fairchild) Award is designed to stimulate the development of the art of aerial photogrammetry in the United States. Practicability is the essence of the award and is the basis for the review of all candidates.
